Effect

In battle

Generations II to VII

Milk Drink restores up to 50% of the user's max HP.

If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Milk Drink, all of the user's lowered stats are reset.

Generation VIII

In Versions 1.0 to 1.1.1 of Pokémon Sword and Shield, Milk Drink cannot be selected in a battle. Starting with Version 1.2.0, it can be selected and functions as it did in previous generations.

Outside of battle

Prior to Generation VII, Milk Drink can also be used outside of battle to transfer some of the user's HP to another party Pokémon. Each use will transfer 20% of the user's HP, up to the target's maximum HP. The move will not work if the user has 20% or less HP left.
