Ingrain (move)

190 bytes removed, 26 May
Effect: Simpler wording
Ingrain causes the affected Pokémon to become [[grounded]], and therefore susceptible to {{type|Ground}} moves; {{m|Spikes}}, {{m|Toxic Spikes}}, and {{m|Sticky Web}} (only relevant when a Pokémon is switched in via Baton Pass and obtains Ingrain); and [[terrain]]—regardless of whether it is {{type|Flying}}, has {{a|Levitate}}, holds an [[Air Balloon]], or is under the effect of {{m|Magnet Rise}} or {{m|Telekinesis}}. {{m|Magnet Rise}} fails if used by a Pokémon under the effect of Ingrain; the move {{m|Telekinesis}} cannot affect a Pokémon under the effect of Ingrain.
If a Pokémon is holding a [[Big Root]] iswhen heldIngrain byrestores theits userHP, the amount of HP restored at the end of each turn is increased by 30%. In order for this boost to take place, the user doesn't have to be holding the Big Root at the moment it used Ingrain, but it must be holding the Big Root when the HP is being restored by Ingrain.
