Leech Seed (Japanese: やどりぎのタネ Mistletoe Seed) is a slightly inaccurate non-damaging Grass-type move introduced in Generation I.

Effect

Generation I

Leech Seed plants a seed on the opponent. At the end of each of its turns that it is under the effect of Leech Seed, 1/16th of the opponent's HP will be drained, and the same amount of HP will be restored to your active pokémon (even if it was not the Pokémon that originally used the attack). Recurrent Leech Seed draining will not occur if the seeded Pokémon knocks out an opponent. Unlike other types of damage, the recurrent damage done by Leech Seed can exceed the opponent's current HP.

If the opponent has less than 16 HP, Leech Seed will drain 1 HP per turn. Leech Seed draining will occur even if the seeded Pokémon knocks itself out with crash damage, recoil damage, or self-inflicted confusion damage, or by making a Substitute before the end of its turn. Draining from Leech Seed is done after continuing partial trapping damage and recurrent poison or burn damage. Leech Seed can be removed by Haze or switching. If the opponent is seeded during a round that it switches in, it will take recurrent damage during that round, but only if its speed is less than or equal to the user's speed.

If the opponent is also under the effect of Toxic, Leech Seed will increase the N value of of Toxic by 1 per turn. If the current HP of the recipient of Leech Seed's HP-restoring effect is greater than its maximum HP, its current HP will be set equal to its maximum HP.

Leech Seed will not work against grass types.

In Stadium, Leech Seed will not work against a substitute.

Generation II

Rapid Spin will release a Pokémon from the effects of Leech Seed.

Pokémon

Bulbasaur: A seed sprouts from Bulbasaur's bulb, which shoots out to the opponent. When hit, the opponent is wrapped with miniature vines that restrain it. The vines then glow and suck energy from the foe.

Turtwig: A seed sprouts from Turtwig's sprout stem on its head and is shot to the opponent. When hit, the opponent is wrapped with miniature vines that restrain it. The vines then glow and suck energy from the foe.
