Healing Wish (Japanese: いやしのねがい Healing Wish) is a non-damaging Psychic-type move introduced in Generation IV.

Contents

Effect

Generation IV

Healing Wish causes the user to faint, then immediately switches in the new Pokémon. The new Pokémon's HP is restored and it is cured of any status conditions upon being sent out. Healing Wish will fail if the player has no other conscious Pokémon in their party.

Generation V onward

The receiving Pokémon is now sent out at the end of the turn rather than immediately sending it out.

Healing Wish can now be stolen by Snatch.

If powered up with a Psychium Z into Z-Healing Wish, the move will gain no additional effects.

Generation VIII

If the Pokémon sent out to replace the user already has full health and no status condition, Healing Wish's effect will not activate until a Pokémon is placed in that position (either by switching in or using Ally Switch). A pending Healing Wish will not activate if a Pokémon already in that position loses HP or gains a status condition; it will only activate when a new Pokémon is placed in that position. Each position can only have a single instance of Healing Wish pending (using it multiple times does not stack).

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

In Explorers of Time, Darkness and Sky, Healing Wish is a move with 16PP that ignores accuracy and evasion checks. It targets all other team members in the same room, fully restoring their HP and curing them of bad status conditions. The user's HP gets reduced to 1 after using the move. In hallways, this move targets Pokémon up two tiles away (or one in one-tile darkness). This move is affected by Taunt and Snatch.
