Oblivion Wing heals through sub O_o

#1WolfJouninPosted 3/20/2014 4:54:09 PM
Just faced another team of ubers on Battle Spot, and Yveltal healed when it hit my Breloom's sub with Oblivion Wing. Of course I proceeded to put it to sleep, sub, focus punch, spore, and repeat until I killed it (I know its a #$%^ move, but hey he is using ubers), but I did not know draining moves healed from subs. Is this a change to all of the draining moves in gen 6? Or just Oblivion Wing? I didn't get a shell bell message either. Just want to know if this applies to other draining moves and also give everyone else a heads up as well.

Draining moves already healed off of subs. What do you think subs don't have HP?

If Drain Punch breaks a substitute, no HP will be restored to the user.

Had to check.

Yeah, substitues are made using 25% of your HP, so they have the equivalent of that. Draining moves gain HP, but on the other hand, recoil moves still take HP.
I'm putting my 3DS code in my signature because it's annoying always having to look it up.

So is Drain Punch the exception to this?
