Swallow (Japanese: のみこむ Swallow) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation III.
The Pokémon who are able to learn this move are also able to learn the related moves Stockpile and Spit Up, except Munchlax, Trubbish, and Garbodor, which cannot learn Spit Up.
This move will fail if the user has not used Stockpile.
Swallow will recover the user's HP depending on the amount of times the user has used Stockpile.
- One Stockpile → 25% of the user's maximum HP
- Two Stockpiles → 50% of the user's maximum HP
- Three Stockpiles → 100% of the user's maximum HP
Swallow now removes any Defense and Special Defense boosts gained through Stockpile. However, it simply will say the effect wore off without showing stat changing, unlike Stockpile.
The boost removal is now shown as stat drops.
