Revival Blessing (Japanese: さいきのいのり Recovery Prayer) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation IX.


Revival Blessing allows the player to select a fainted Pokémon in the party; the selected Pokémon will be revived, and half of its maximum HP will be restored. Revival Blessing will fail if there are no fainted Pokémon in the party.

  • Revival Blessing is one of two moves (excluding Struggle) whose base PP is not a multiple of 5, the other being Sketch.
    • Additionally, both Sketch and Revival Blessing cannot have their maximum PP increased.
  • The only Pokémon that can learn this move learn it upon evolution, with the condition for their evolution being leveling up while outside of their Poké Ball after walking 1000 steps using the Let's Go! feature. Not even Smeargle can learn this move, because Sketch fails on it.
  • Revival Blessing is the only game mechanic that can revive a fainted Pokémon during a battle without using the Bag. Consequently, it is the only game mechanic that can revive a Pokémon in standard link battles or Video Game Championships.
