Pain Split (Japanese: いたみわけ Pain Split) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation II. Prior to Generation IV, it was the signature move of Misdreavus.

Effect

Generation II

Pain Split adds the current HP of the user and target Pokémon. It then divides this value by two and sets the HP of both Pokémon to the result (limited by each Pokémon's maximum HP).

Pain Split has an accuracy of 100.

Generation III onwards

Pain Split now bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly. It will fail if the target is behind a substitute.

Pain Split can be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining an extra appeal point if the move Endure was used in the prior turn. It is also part of a Contest Spectacular combination and will give an extra three appeal points if the move Endure was used in the prior turn.

If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Pain Split, the user's Defense stat rises by one stage.
