Water Absorb (Ability)
When a Pokémon with Water Absorb is hit by a Water-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 Water-type move will do nothing).
Water Absorb will not activate if the Pokémon is protected from the Water-type move.
Outside of battle
Water Absorb has no effect outside of battle.
