Effect

Bug Bite inflicts damage. If the target is holding a Berry, the user will eat the Berry and gain its effect. Bug Bite will not eat the target's Berry if it hits its substitute. Bug Bite will not consume the Berry of a target that has the Ability Sticky Hold.

The effect of a Jaboca Berry or Tanga Berry will activate before the Berry can be stolen. Berries like Liechi or Sitrus Berry will be eaten by the attacker, regardless of them meeting their consumption requirement upon taking damage from Bug Bite.

The user will receive the effects of the target's held Berry even if it has the Ability Klutz or is affected by Embargo.

Description

Description
The user bites the target. If the target is holding a Berry, the user eats it and gains its effect.
