How does snatch work in this case?

5 votes

the move snatch allows the user to steal the effects of a target's move. For instance, if a pokemon uses swords dance, and another pokemon uses snatch on them, then the pokemon that uses snatch will steal the boost from the sword dancer. My question is since the move does affect Substitute and Belly drum, do you still take damage? Does your opponent get the damage while you get the benefits, or do you have to take the bitter with the sweet?

I just tested that(luckily i had a Snatch tm) and it Snatches the moves and recieves full effect, meaning it loses HP and gets the benefit. I hope this helps.
