Water Absorb (ちょすい Water Storage) is an ability introduced in Generation III which activates in the event of your Pokémon getting hit by a Water-type move, resulting in your Pokémon regaining roughly a quarter of its HP. However, if your Pokémon already has full health when Water Absorb is used, the following message will appear "Poliwag's Water Absorb made Hydro Pump useless!"

In Generation III, Water Absorb's in-game description is "Changes water into HP." In Generation IV, Water Absorb's in-game description is "Restores HP if hit by a Water-type move." In Generation V, Water Absorb's in-game description is "Restores HP if hit by a Water-type move."
