Triage (Japanese: ヒーリングシフト Healing Shift) is an Ability introduced in Generation VII. It is the signature Ability of Comfey.


In battle

Triage increases the priority of moves that restore HP used by the Pokémon with this Ability by 3, including both damaging moves and status moves. Triage does not affect Aqua Ring, Grassy Terrain, Ingrain, Leech Seed, Pain Split, Present, Pollen Puff, or Z-Moves that only heal due to their Z-Power effect (such as Z-Conversion 2).

The table below lists the moves affected by Triage, as well as the Pokémon that can have Triage and learn those moves.
