From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Stockpile (Japanese: たくわえる Stockpile) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation III.
The Pokémon who are able to learn this move are also able to learn the related moves Swallow and Spit Up; all can learn at least one of the moves, and only Qwilfish, Munchlax, Trubbish, Garbodor, and Guzzlord cannot learn both.
Stockpile stores up energy for the user and has no secondary effect. The maximum number of stockpiles the user can hold is three. If used after the third count, it will fail.
The moves Spit Up and Swallow inflict damage and heal the user based on the number of stockpiles, respectively, but also reset the stockpile count. Both moves fail if the stockpile count is zero.
In this generation, Stockpile's PP is 10.
Stockpile can also be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, causing Spit Up and Swallow to have their base appeal points doubled if used in the next turn.
Generation IV onwards
In addition to its previous effects, Stockpile gains a secondary effect of raising the user's Defense stat and Special Defense stat by one stage each after stockpiling. Once the user has used Spit Up or Swallow, the increases in Defense and Special Defense gained this way are lost.
In addition, Stockpile's PP is raised to 20.
If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Stockpile, the user regains all of its HP.
Stockpile can also be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, causing Spit Up and Swallow to give an extra three appeal points if used in the next turn.
