Talk:Snatch (move)

I don't like the picture for snatch (with liepard on it) because it doesn't show the actural animation of snacth.

Targets for Snatch

I'm not sure if this changed since the game that I have done it on, but I've managed to use Snatch successfully with my own pokemon in Colosseum (they're all double battles). I had my Umbreon use Snatch, and then my Meganium used Synthesis, resulting in my Umbreon snatching the effects of Synthesis and using it on itself. I didn't realize that this was possible when it first occurred and since then, I was able to repeat it without fail. However, I do not have a DS, so I wouldn't be able to try it on the newer generations, and I'll admit that I never tried emulating the same effects on Pokemon Emerald. Can someone confirm that the targets for Snatch is only the opponent's pokemon and that a friendly pokemon's effects cannot be snatched? Samuikion 18:51, 10 February 2011 (UTC)


Can Snatch steal the healing ability of Rest? Thanks Pokepro97 (talk) 02:14, 14 April 2014 (UTC).

Yes. glikglak 02:26, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
Does it also steal the sleeping, or just the healing? Should this be added to the article as it is a healing ability with a secondary effect and they should be elaborated on.
