Draining Kiss (Japanese: ドレインキッス Drain Kiss) is a damage-dealing Fairy-type move introduced in Generation VI. It is TM87 in Generation VIII.

Effect

If the target has the Ability Liquid Ooze, the user will lose the amount of HP it would have gained instead.

Draining Kiss cannot be used if the user is under the effects of Heal Block.

Pokémon UNITE

In Pokémon UNITE, Draining Kiss is Sylveon's second move. It is obtained by reaching level 6 and upgrading Baby-Doll Eyes into it instead of Calm Mind. The user blows a kiss at an enemy that goes back and forth between the user and the target multiple times. When the kiss touches the user, restore HP. When it hits the enemy, deal damage and decrease their movement speed for a short time. If the user and the enemy move too far away from each other, the kiss will disappear faster than normal. At level 12, the healing is increased.
