Effects

The user of Ingrain plants it roots, which restores 116 of its maximum HP at the end of each turn, but prevents switching out.

Only the moves Baton Pass, U Turn or Volt Switch will allow the user to switch out, with Baton Pass transferring the effects of Ingrain. Moves such as Roar used on this Pokemon will have no effect.

Ingrain cancels effects given to raised Pokemon such as immunity to Ground-type moves, Spikes and so on. See more in the glossary.

If the user is holding a Big Root, Ingrain restores 30% more HP each turn - approximately 112 of its maximum.

Z-Move effects

When a Pokémon is holding Grassium Z and uses its Z-Power, Ingrain turns into Z-Ingrain and raises Special Defense one stage, in addition to its usual effect as above.
