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

Effect

Draining Kiss does damage and restores the user's HP by 75% of the damage dealt.

If the user is holding a Big Root, the HP restored is increased by 30% (making the restored HP 91% of the damage dealt). Big Root does not increase the damage dealt.

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.
