From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Horn Leech (Japanese: ウッドホーン Wood Horn) is a damage-dealing Grass-type move introduced in Generation V. Prior to Generation VI, it was Sawsbuck's signature move.
Horn Leech will inflict damage on the target and ½ of the damage dealt will be restored to the user as HP.
When used on a Pokémon with the Liquid Ooze Ability, the user will lose the amount of HP it would have gained instead.
If the user has a Big Root as its held item, it will recover 30% more HP than it normally would. Big Root does not increase damage dealt.
Horn Leech cannot be used if the user is under the effects of Heal Block.
| The user drains the target's energy with its horns. The user's HP is restored by half the damage taken by the target.
