Effect

In battle

Generation III

When a Pokemon 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 Pokemon (if a Pokemon with this Ability already has full HP, the Electric-type move will do nothing).

Volt Absorb will not activate if the Pokemon is protected from the Electric-type move.

Generation IV onward

When a Pokemon with Volt Absorb is hit by an Electric-type move (including status moves), its HP is restored by one quarter of its maximum HP, and the move will have no effect on that Pokemon (if a Pokemon with this Ability already has full HP, the Electric-type move will do nothing).

If a Pokemon 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.
