Ingrain (move)

Effect: Tested in generations IV to VI
{{MoveResearch|In order for the effect of Big Root to take place, does it need to be held when Ingrain is used, or when HP is recovered with Ingrain?}}
===Generation III===
The user plants roots in the ground, allowing it to restore 1/16th of its max {{Stat|HP}} at the end of every turn. This roots the user firmly in place, preventing it from [[escape|escaping]] (unless it holds a [[Smoke Ball]] or its Trainer uses an [[escape item]]) or switching out.
Ingrain causes the affected Pokémon to become [[grounded]], and therefore susceptible to {{type|Ground}} moves; {{m|Spikes}}, {{m|Toxic Spikes}}, and {{m|Sticky Web}} (only relevant when a Pokémon is switched in via Baton Pass and obtains Ingrain); and [[terrain]]—regardless of whether it is {{type|Flying}}, has {{a|Levitate}}, holds an [[Air Balloon]], or is under the effect of {{m|Magnet Rise}} or {{m|Telekinesis}}. {{m|Magnet Rise}} fails if used by a Pokémon under the effect of Ingrain; the move {{m|Telekinesis}} cannot affect a Pokémon under the effect of Ingrain.
If a [[Big Root]] is held by the user, the amount of HP restored at the end of each turn is increased by 30%. In order for this boost to take place, the user doesn't have to be holding the Big Root at the moment it used Ingrain, but it must be holding the Big Root when the HP is being restored by Ingrain.
===Generation VI onward===
