Liquid Ooze (Japanese: ヘドロえき Oozing Liquid) is an Ability introduced in Generation III.

Effect

In battle

Liquid Ooze causes HP-draining moves used on the Pokémon with this Ability to damage their user instead of healing them.

If a Pokémon with Liquid Ooze is hit by a draining move such as Giga Drain or Leech Life (including the status move Strength Sap), or takes damage from the effect of Leech Seed, the amount of HP that would be recovered by the opponent is dealt as damage instead (after applying the effect of Big Root). The damage dealt by the move is not affected.

Even if the user of the HP-draining move cannot heal from its effect due to having full HP or the effect of Heal Block, it will still take damage.
