Does Swallow of Stockpile count as a stat reduction that activates a White Herb?

80/80!

I'm trying to make my Drifblim the ultimate Baton Passer.

Minimize, Stockpile, Calm Mind are all really great for my team. With unburden, I can simultaneously pass a Speed boost.

Drifblim will sustain damage setting up so I was wondering:

if I could throw a White Herb on him, could he Swallow the Stockpile and heal, nullify the stat reduction with White Herb, and actually GAIN a speed boost with Unburden from consuming the White Herb?

Its totally fine, sir. I seem to do quite well for a stretch and then at the end of the sentence I say the wrong cranberry.

I'm mostly sure he can, so yes.

Could be wrong though.

But taunt would absolutely wreck that moveset however.

I don't think you can pass an Unburden speed boost.

If so that is an extremely powerful combo.

You could basically boost, then heal off damage from the turn and get a free speed buff all at the same time.

I guess I could run Ominous Wind for a stab attack move, that could throw me some stats every now and then to pass on.

I think this would be definitely worth testing.

According to Smogon, this isn't a staged stat boost and is incapable of being Baton Passed. This is from the Gen V notes, so you can test it in Generation VI, but don't get your hopes up.

Hmm while we're talking about Stockpile, can you baton pass your Stockpile number? "Snorlax Stockpiled 3!"

So that Swallow used by the baton recipient gives a full health regeneration?
