Heal Pulse (Japanese: いやしのはどう Healing Wave) is a non-damaging Psychic-type move introduced in Generation V.

Effect

Heal Pulse restores up to 50% (75% if the user has Mega Launcher) of the target's maximum HP. It will fail if the target's HP stat is already full or if it is behind a Substitute.

Heal Pulse bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly. It can hit non-adjacent targets in Triple Battles.

If powered up by a Psychium Z into Z-Heal Pulse, all of the user's lowered stats are reset, and the target can be healed regardless of whether or not it is afflicted by Heal Block.
