Rock Head (Ability)

Effect

In battle

Rock Head prevents recoil damage from moves (exceptStruggle), but not from use of a Life Orb, Jaboca Berry, or Rowap Berry. Crash damage is still received if Jump Kick or High Jump Kick misses.

If Rock Head is lost in a turn due to using a recoil-inducing contact move on a Pokemon with Mummy, the HP loss from recoil will occur that turn.

In Pokemon Colosseum, Pokemon with this Ability still receive recoil damage from Shadow Rush. In Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness Pokemon with this Ability still receive recoil damage from Shadow End.
