Purify (Japanese: じょうか Purify) is a non-damaging Poison-type move introduced in Generation VII. It is the signature move of Pyukumuku.


If the target has a non-volatile status condition, Purify cures it and then restores the user's HP by up to 50% of its own maximum HP. It has no effect if the target does not have a non-volatile status condition (even if it has the Ability Comatose).

If powered up by a Poisonium Z into Z-Purify, the user's Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense, and Speed are raised by one stage each.


Games Description
The user heals the target's status condition. If the move succeeds, it also restores the user's own HP.
