Dry Skin
Flavor text
Reduces HP if it is hot. Water restores HP.

Effect

In battle

During harsh sunlight, a Pokémon with Dry Skin will lose ⅛ of its maximum HP at the end of each turn. During rain, a Pokémon with Dry Skin will regain ⅛ of its maximum HP at the end of each turn.

Fire-type attacks do 25% more damage to a Pokémon with Dry Skin.

When a Pokémon with Dry Skin 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). This effect will not activate if the Pokémon is protected from the Water-type move. Multi-strike moves will only activate this effect once.

Outside of battle

Dry Skin has no effect outside of battle.
