Sap Sipper (Japanese: そうしょく Herbivorous) is an Ability introduced in Generation V.
When a Pokémon with Sap Sipper is hit by a Grass-type move, its Attack is increased by one stage, and the move will have no effect on that Pokémon.
Multi-strike moves, such as Bullet Seed, will only increase the Pokémon's Attack once. Aromatherapy will not activate Sap Sipper.
Sap Sipper will not activate if the Pokémon is protected from the Grass-type move.
Generation VI onward
Aromatherapy now activates Sap Sipper of allies.
Outside of battle
Sap Sipper has no effect outside of battle.
