Rest (Japanese: ねむる Rest) is a non-damaging Psychic-type move introduced in Generation I. It was TM44 from Generation I to Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, as well as in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, TM05 in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, TM21 in Pokémon Sword and Shield, and is TM085 in Generation IX.

Effect

Rest causes the user to fall asleep, restoring its HP to its maximum amount. The user is unable to use moves for 2 turns while asleep: the turn when Rest is used and the next turn.

Gen I Gen II–VIII Gen IX
PP 10 5
Sleep time Sleep 2 turns (counting the turn when Rest is used)
Attack on 3rd turn (the turn after it wakes up)
Sleep 3 turns (counting the turn when Rest is used)
Attack on 3rd turn (the same turn when it wakes up)

If a Pokémon with the Early Bird Ability uses Rest, it will spend one fewer turn asleep (being able to attack on the next turn after Rest is used).

Rest cures the user of any other existing non-volatile status condition (poison, paralysis, burn, or freeze) once it falls asleep. However, it does not affect any volatile ones such as confusion, infatuation, seeding, etc.

Rest works normally even if the user is affected by Safeguard.

Rest fails in these circumstances:

If the user is affected by Heal Block, this move cannot be used. In this case, if there are no other moves available, it will use Struggle.

Generation I

  This move effect may be in need of research.
Reason: Confirm if any of these glitches is found in the original Japanese Pokémon Stadium
You can discuss this on the talk page.

In the handheld Generation I games only, a glitch causes the stat reductions associated with paralysis and burn to remain despite the fact that the Pokémon no longer has that status, though this can be alleviated by switching out. In Pokémon Stadium and later games, Rest will reset stat reductions from major status conditions.

In the handheld Generation I games only, if a Pokémon that has been badly poisoned by Toxic successfully uses Rest, it will be cured of poison, but Toxic's counter is not reset; if it then suffers burn, Leech Seed or poison damage, that damage will be calculated with the formula for bad poison, still being calculated as N * x, and the N value will still increase by 1 each time (however, if the Pokémon is poisoned with Toxic, the N value will be reset to 1).

In the handheld Generation I games only, Rest will also fail if the difference between the user's maximum HP and current HP leaves a remainder of 255 when divided by 256 (such as 255 or 511).

Generation II

In this generation only, Rest can be used through Sleep Talk. It will work as usual, restoring the user's HP and resetting the number of turns the user will remain asleep.

Generations III and IV

Rest now fails if it is used via Sleep Talk, regardless of the user's HP.

Rest can be used as the first move of a Pokémon Contest combination, causing Sleep Talk and Snore to score double the normal appeal if used in the next turn. It can also be used to finish a combination, with the user gaining 2 bonus appeal points if Belly Drum, Charm, or Yawn was used in the previous turn.

Generations V to VII

Rest can be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, causing Sleep Talk and Snore to give an extra three appeal points if used in the next turn.

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

Generation VIII

Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Rest restores 75% of the user's total HP and makes the user drowsy for four turns.

Rest causes the user to start napping for 2-3RBTDS / 5SMD turns. When the status ends, the user's HP is restored, its status conditions cured, and move seals removed. If the user is forcibly woken up (such as by Uproar), the effect will not take place. The move is affected by Snatch.

Rest is Jigglypuff's down special. Unlike its counterpart in the Pokémon games, rather than healing the player, it damages the opponent and launches them into the air and either sets them on fire (prior to Super Smash Bros. Brawl) or plants a damage-inflicting flower on their head (from Super Smash Bros. Brawl onwards). This is a close-range attack with the hitbox placed at the center of Jigglypuff's body; using it even right next to the target will fail. If the attack misses, Jigglypuff will fall asleep doing no damage and leaving itself open to attacks.

In Pokémon UNITE, Rest is Snorlax's second starting move. The user falls asleep for a short duration, healing 3 times for 8% of their Max HP. While asleep other Pokémon cannot pass through the user’s hitbox. At level 7 it's replaced by either Block or Yawn.

Trivia

  • Although Rest does not deal any damage in the normal games, in the Super Smash Bros. series, Jigglypuff's Rest attack unleashes an internal explosion that sends any opponent it touches flying, almost always ending in a KO in Melee.
  • According to Webster's friend in Johto, Rest is a contraction of Recover fast.
  • The English manual for Pokémon Yellow mentions that "Rest's number of turns is changed to between 1 and 3" when used in Colosseum 2. This is not the case.
  • If a Shedinja uses Rest, it will always fail due to the fact that a non-fainted Shedinja always has full HP (1 HP).
