==Effect==
===Generation I===
Leech Seed plants a seed on the target. After a target under the effect of Leech Seed takes its turn, <sup>1</sup>/<sub>16</sub> of its HP will be drained (rounded down, but not less than 1), and the same amount of HP will be restored to the target's opponent (even if it was not the Pokémon that originally used the attack). Recurrent Leech Seed draining will not occur if the seeded Pokémon defeats the target. Unlike other types of damage, the recurrent damage done by Leech Seed can exceed the target's current HP. Leech Seed will not work against {{type|Grass}} Pokémon, and attempts to seed an already-seeded Pokémon will fail.
 
If the target has less than 16 HP, Leech Seed will drain 1 HP per turn. Leech Seed draining will occur even if the seeded Pokémon knocks itself out with crash damage, recoil damage, or self-inflicted confusion damage, or by making a {{m|substitute}} before the end of its turn. Draining from Leech Seed is done after continuing partial trapping damage and recurrent poison or burn damage. Leech Seed can be removed by {{m|Haze}} or switching. If the target is seeded during a round that it switches in, it will take recurrent damage during that round, but only if its speed is less than or equal to the user's speed.
 
If the target of Leech Seed is also under the effect of {{m|Toxic}}, Leech(or Seedwas damageunder willthat increaseeffect everyand turnhealed asitself thewith N value of Toxic increases{{m|Rest}}), because Leech Seed and Toxic both use the same damage algorithm ( N × max (1, intLeech (0.0625Seed ×damage Maxwill HP)).be Ifaffected theby current {{stat|HP}} of the recipient of Leech SeedToxic's HP-restoring effect is greater than its maximum'''N''' HPparameter, its current HPand will beincrease seteach equal to its maximum HPturn.
 
In the [[Pokémon Stadium series]], Leech Seed will not work against a target with a substitute.
 
===Generation II onwards===
⅛ of the target's HP is drained instead. {{m|Rapid Spin}} will release a Pokémon from the effects of Leech Seed. Also, Leech Seed no longer interacts with {{m|Toxic}} damage and Haze no longer affects Leech Seed. If a Pokémon uses {{m|Baton Pass}}, Leech Seed will still be underin effect, even if the switched in Pokémon is a Grass- type. The user can no longer plant a seed on a target with a substitute (but setting up a substitute does not release a Pokémon from existing effects of Leech Seed).
 
In===Generation battlesIII involving multiple Pokémon, Leech Seed will only heal the Pokémon that is in the same position as the Pokémon that originally used Leech Seed was in. If no Pokémon is in that position (for example, if it fainted and could not be replaced), Leech Seed will not take any health from the seeded Pokémon. However, if a Pokémon is later able to occupy that position (if it was revived), Leech Seed will once again sap HP from the seeded Pokémon. This also means that for as long as a seeded Pokémon stays in battle and Leech Seed is not removed by Rapid Spin, that Pokémon will not be able to be seeded again.onward===
Leech Seed will now drain HP at the end of each turn.

Using {{m|Sappy Seed}} will plant a Leech Seed on the target if it hits.
