Morning Sun

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Normal - - 5 0 - User

Description

Heals the user by 1/2 of its maximum HP if no weather conditions are in effect, 2/3 of its maximum HP if the weather is sun, and 1/4 of its maximum HP if the weather is hail, rain, or sandstorm, all rounded half down.

Competitive Use

Morning Sun is somewhat unreliable, as the recovery is cut down by sandstorm and rain, two common weather conditions. Furthermore, it only has 8 maximum PP, which can be easily stalled out. For these reason, not many Pokemon use Morning Sun. However, on a sun team, or if there is no other alternatives, some Pokemon, such as Espeon, may use Morning Sun for healing.
