Does the Big Root item work for moves like Horn Leech and Drain Punch?

Hey guys, I wanted to give my Trevenant a Big Root with Leech Seed and also Horn Leech but i'm not sure if it works for moves like Horn Leech since it's HP draining perk is more of a secondary ability of the move while physical attack is it's primary. Unlike Giga Drain, which has a primary ability of HP draining which i'm sure the Big Root is more suited for.

Yes it does!
When this item is held by a Pokémon, if it uses the moves Absorb, Aqua Ring, Drain Punch, Draining Kiss, Dream Eater, Giga Drain, Horn Leech, Ingrain, Leech Life, Leech Seed, Mega Drain, Oblivion Wing or Parabolic Charge, the HP it recovers is increased by 30%

Hope I helped

I know it works for Horn Leech so I think it will work for Drain Punch as well.
