'''Leech Seed''' (Japanese: '''やどりぎのタネ''' ''{{wp|Mistletoe}} Seed'') is a non-damaging {{type|Grass}} [[move]] introduced in [[Generation I]].
 
==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.
 
Leech Seed plantsdraining awill seedoccur oneven if the opponent.seeded AtPokémon knocks itself out with crash damage, recoil damage, or self-inflicted confusion damage, or by making a {{m|substitute}} before the end of eachits ofturn. itsDraining turnsfrom 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 underless than or equal to the user's speed.
effect of Leech Seed, 1/16th of the opponent's HP will be drained, and the same amount of HP
will be restored to your active pokémon (even if it was not the Pokémon that originally used
the attack). Recurrent Leech Seed draining will not occur if the seeded Pokémon knocks out an
opponent. Unlike other types of damage, the recurrent damage done by Leech Seed can exceed the
opponent's current HP.

of Toxic by 1 per turn. If the current HP of the recipient of Leech Seed's HP-restoring effect
is greater than its maximum HP, its current HP will be set equal to its maximum HP.
 
Leech===Generation Seed will not work against grass types.II===
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 in 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 Stadium,III Leech Seed will not work against a substitute.onward===
Leech Seed will now drain HP at the end of each turn.
 
=In battles involving multiple Pokémon, Leech Seed will only heal the anime=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. While a Pokémon is seeded, even if it cannot have its health drained due to there being no Pokémon in the appropriate slot to drain its HP, it cannot be affected by Leech Seed again.

=Learnset=If the target has the [[Ability]] {{a|Liquid Ooze}}, the user takes damage instead of restoring HP. If the user is under the effect of {{m|Heal Block}}, Leech Seed will not restore any of the user's HP. However, the effect damage will be dealt normally. If the user has a [[Big Root]] as its held item, it will recover 30% more HP than it normally would. Big Root does not increase damage dealt. All other effects remain the same.

==Trivia==
* Though Leech Seed cannot affect {{type|Grass}} Pokémon in the games, Grass-type Pokémon have been affected in the {{pkmn|anime}}.
* Despite the origin of its Japanese name being a parasite that attaches itself to a host plant and absorbs nutrients, Leech Seed cannot affect Grass-type Pokémon.
