Salt Cure (move)
しおづけ Salt Pickling
Salt Cure (Japanese: しおづけ Salt Pickling) is a damage-dealing Rock-type move introduced in Generation IX. It is the signature move of Naclstack and Garganacl.
Salt Cure inflicts 1/8 of the target's maximum HP as damage per turn in addition to the damage dealt when it is used. If a Steel and/or Water type is affected by Salt Cure, the amount of damage per turn is ¼ of its maximum HP.
The effect is removed when the afflicted Pokémon is switched out. Salt Cure cannot be passed by Baton Pass.
Team Star's Starmobiles are unaffected by the secondary effects of Salt Cure.
