Effects

Dream Eater deals damage only on sleeping foes and the user will recover 50% of the HP drained.

If the user is holding a Big Root, the move instead recovers 65% of the damage dealt (30% more than normal). If used on a Pokemon with the ability Liquid Ooze, the user instead loses the HP it would have otherwise gained.

When a Pokémon is holding Psychium Z and uses its Z-Power, Dream Eater turns into Shattered Psyche and has base power 180.
