Effects

Horn Leech deals damage 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 Pokémon with the ability Liquid Ooze, the user instead loses the HP it would have otherwise gained.

Z-Move effects

When a Pokémon is holding Grassium Z and uses its Z-Power, Horn Leech turns into Bloom Doom and has base power 140.
