Refresh (Japanese: リフレッシュ Refresh) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation III.
Generations III to VII
Refresh cures the user of burns, poison, or paralysis. It cannot cure freeze or sleep, so Refresh will fail if it is called by Sleep Talk.
Refresh can also be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining an extra appeal point if either the move Sing or Water Sport was used in the prior turn.
If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Refresh, the user regains all of its HP.
Refresh cannot be selected in a battle.

In Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team and Explorers of Time and Darkness and Sky, Refresh is a move with 17PP that ignores accuracy and evasion checks. It cures all allies in the same room as user of all status conditions that are considered negative, such as Slowed Down, Nightmare or Constriction, as well as removing move seals (even though they aren't considered a status condition by the game). In hallways, this move targets Pokémon up two tiles away (or one in one-tile darkness). This move is affected by Taunt and Snatch.

- In Generation III, the status screen erroneously states that the move has 100% accuracy, even though it targets the user (thus it ignores accuracy and evasion checks).
