Rate this ability idea: Dark Heal

Any healing source on the field will instead hurt the Pokemon for the amount healed. Non-hold items are not effected.

Have leftovers? You take damage every turn.
Used wish? Half your health is gone when it's granted.
Water Absorb? Hah, I'll launch water type attacks at you for bonus damage.
Oh, I know Heal Pulse? Hee hee hee...

Of course, it effects that Pokemon and it's allies too, so it's risky.

Rename it. It sounds too much like a Dark-type version of Water/Volt Absorb.

Maybe have this move reverse all effects instead of just healing?

Life Orb: Heals hp but lowers damage done
Leftovers: Deals a bit of damage every turn
Status Orbs are useless.
ETC.

Whoops, forgot the edit button.

I love the idea, but the name is very misleading.

How about something like "Reverse Heal" or "Anti-Heal." Or perhaps "Corruption Zone" for something a bit less direct.

I was originally going to call it Unheal, but I thought that was boring.

Corruption Zone sounds good though.

This.

Otherwise neat idea.

This would be cool with Iron Ball or Laggy Tail (whatever that thing's called), 1.5x speed when sent out, and pseudo-levitate (I assume, because Iron ball, at least, cancels levitate).

Unheal is a much better name. Reminds of old Dragon Quest.
