Swallow (Japanese: のみこむ Swallow) 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 Stockpile and Spit Up, except Munchlax, Trubbish, Garbodor, and Guzzlord, which cannot learn Spit Up.

Effect

Generation III

This move will fail if the user has not used Stockpile. If Swallow is used after stockpiling, it recovers the user's HP depending on the number of times Stockpile was used:

  • 1× → 25% of the user's maximum HP
  • 2× → 50% of the user's maximum HP
  • 3× → 100% of the user's maximum HP

After Swallow is used, the stockpile count will be reset.

Swallow can be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, giving an extra appeal point if Stockpile was used in the prior turn.

Generation IV

Swallow now removes any Defense and Special Defense boosts gained through Stockpile. However, it simply will say the effect wore off without showing stat changing, unlike Stockpile.

Generation V onwards

The boost removal is now shown as stat drops.

Swallow can be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, giving an extra three appeal points if Stockpile was used in the prior turn.

If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Swallow, all of the user's lowered stats are reset.
