Purify (Japanese: じょうか Purify) is a non-damaging Poison-type move introduced in Generation VII. It is the signature move of Pyukumuku.

Effect

If the target has a non-volatile status condition, Purify cures it and then restores the user's HP by up to 50% of its own maximum HP. It has no effect if the target does not have a non-volatile status condition (even if it has the Ability Comatose).

If powered up by a Poisonium Z into Z-Purify, the user's Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense, and Speed are raised by one stage each.
