Present (Japanese: プレゼント Present) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation II. It is the signature move of Delibird.

Effect

Generation II

Present has two different effects. Present can either deal damage against the target or heal the target by 80 HP.

If Present deals damage, then the base power of Present is chosen at random from 40, 80, or 120. If Present chooses to heal the target, it will heal the foe.

Effect Probability
Damage with 40 base power 40%
Damage with 80 base power 30%
Damage with 120 base power 10%
Heal the target by 80 HP 20%

In Pokémon Gold and Silver, the level, Attack, and Defense variables of the damage formula are replaced. The Attack variable is replaced with 10. The level will be based on the index number of the defending Pokémon's type, while the Defense will be based on the index number of the attacking Pokémon's type (if a Pokémon is a dual-type, its secondary type will be used). Also, Present only inflicts a quarter of the normal damage against Rock-type and Steel-type Pokémon.

In Pokémon Crystal and Pokémon Stadium 2, Present uses the standard damage formula.

In all versions, it will heal Pokémon with full HP, though without effect.

Generation III-IV

Present uses the standard damage formula. Present heals the foe by 1/4 of its max HP, instead of only 80. It will fail if it would heal Pokémon with full HP.

Generation V

Present consumes a Normal Gem even if it heals the target.

Generation VI

If Present is used by a Pokémon with Parental Bond, if Present heals the target it will only hit once, and if it damages the target it will hit twice (the second hit will always damage the target).
