Bitter Blade (Japanese: むねんのつるぎ Sword of Regret) is a damage-dealing Fire-type move introduced in Generation IX. It is the signature move of Ceruledge.


Bitter Blade inflicts damage, and it restores the user's HP by half of the damage dealt. If used by a Pokémon with Sharpness, its power is increased by 50%.

If the user is holding a Big Root, the HP restored is increased by 30%. Big Root does not increase the damage dealt.

If the target has the Ability Liquid Ooze, the user will lose the amount of HP it would have gained instead.


Games Description
