| Oozed liquid has strong stench, which damages attackers using any draining move.
Liquid Ooze (Japanese: ヘドロえき Oozing Liquid) is an Ability introduced in Generation III. All Pokémon that have this Ability are Poison types.
Liquid Ooze causes HP-draining moves used on the Pokémon with this Ability to damage their user instead of healing them.
If a Pokémon with Liquid Ooze is hit by an HP-draining move (such as Giga Drain or Leech Life), is hit by Strength Sap, or takes damage from the effect of Leech Seed, the amount of HP that would be recovered by the opponent is dealt as damage instead (after applying the effect of Big Root). The damage dealt by the move is not affected.
Even if the user of the HP-draining move cannot heal from its effect due to having full HP or the effect of Heal Block, it will still take damage.
HP draining moves
Prior to Generation V, Dream Eater is not affected by this Ability.
Outside of battle
Liquid Ooze has no effect outside of battle.
