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.
