Water Absorb (ability)

Water Absorb is one of the many abilities that are inheritable by Pokémon.

Its inheritees are predominantly Water-type Pokémon.

Function

Whenever the possessor sustains Water-type attacks, all potentially inflicted damage is negated and the move will be rendered completely effectless. Additionally, it will also recuperate 1/4th of its maximal amount of HP.

Effects of items that would also provide countereffects from sustaining Water-type attacks, such as the Absorb Bulb, are superseded by Water Absorb, meaning that their otherwise-redundant functions will not execute.
