From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Aqua Ring (Japanese: アクアリング Aqua Ring) is a non-damaging Water-type move introduced in Generation IV.
The user surrounds itself with a veil of water, allowing it to restore 1/16 of its max HP at the end of every turn. The effect of Aqua Ring can be Baton Passed, and will heal any Pokémon, regardless of its type.
If a Big Root is held by the user, the amount of HP restored at the end of each turn will increase by 30%.
Aqua Ring can now be affected by Snatch.
The Pokémon pauses for about two seconds, then it restores HP by 2s and 3s.
| The user envelops itself in a veil made of water. It regains some HP on every turn.
|| Gives the user the Aqua Ring status, which restores its HP every few turns.
