Either deals damage or heals the target. The move has a 40% chance to be a 40 Base Power attack, a 30% chance to be an 80 Base Power attack, a 10% chance to be a 120 Base Power attack, and a 20% chance to heal the target by 1/4 its maximum HP. This move must hit to be effective. This move will consume a Normal Gem even if the opponent is healed.
Arguably the most hilarious move introduced in GSC. Hilarity doesn't win battles, though. This move is too unpredictable, and 120 base power isn't so great when it happens only 10% of the time. On average, Present has 52 base power, and that's without factoring in accuracy or the 25% HP healing that it could do. Every Pokemon other than Togekiss also has to have Delibird as a father to get it...
Return is a more powerful option on average and is way more reliable.
Double-Edge is a much more powerful option on average with a reliable 120 Base Power, with recoil being its only drawback.
