Pollen Puff (Japanese: かふんだんご Pollen Ball) is a damage-dealing Bug-type move introduced in Generation VII. Prior to Generation VIII, it was the signature move of Ribombee. It is TR96 in Generation VIII.

Effect

  This move effect may be in need of research.
Reason: Does Telepathy protects ally from Pollen Puff and Present?
You can discuss this on the talk page.

Pollen Puff's effect varies depending on the target. If it targets an opponent, it deals damage. If it targets an ally, it restores up to 50% of the target's maximum HP. Pokémon with Bulletproof are immune to Pollen Puff.

Pokémon affected by Heal Block cannot target allies with Pollen Puff (but they can target an opponent); if a Pokémon would use Pollen Puff targeting an ally, but is affected by Heal Block when it would use Pollen Puff, it is unable to use the move. If a Pokémon is affected by Heal Block, it cannot be healed by other Pokémon's Pollen Puff.
