Wish (Japanese: ねがいごと Wish) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation III.
The turn Wish is used, the user will make a wish. At the end of the next turn, the Pokémon in the user's current position will be healed by half its own maximum HP.
Wish can still be used even if the user's HP is full, but it will do nothing if the Pokémon that should be healed has full HP.
Wish can be blocked by Protect.
Wish will now cast its healing effect before a Pokémon switches in for a Pokémon knocked out in that turn.
Wish is no longer blocked by Protect.
Generation V onwards
Wish now heals for half of the user's maximum HP rather than the recipient's. Wish can now be stolen by Snatch.
Wish can be used as a part of a Contest Spectacular combination, causing Bestow, Fling and Present to give an extra three appeal points if any of them is used in the next turn.
If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Wish, the user's Special Defense raises one stage.
