Restores HP if hit by an Electric-type move, instead of taking damage.
Volt Absorb (Japanese: ちくでん Electricity Storage) is an Ability introduced in Generation III. All Pokémon that have this Ability are Electric types.
When a Pokémon with Volt Absorb is hit by a damaging
Electric-type move, its HP is restored by one quarter of its maximum HP, and the move will have no effect on that Pokémon (if a Pokémon with this Ability already has full HP, the Electric-type move will do nothing).
Volt Absorb will not activate if the Pokémon is
protected from the Electric-type move.
Generation IV onward
Volt Absorb will now also activate when a Pokémon with it is hit by an
Electric-type status move.
Multi-strike moves that are turned into Electric-type moves, such as by being affected by Electrify or Galvanize, will only activate this Ability once.
If a Pokémon with Volt Absorb is holding a
Cell Battery, Volt Absorb absorbs the move, so the Cell Battery's effect is not triggered.
Outside of battle
Volt Absorb has no effect outside of battle.
