Effects

Stockpile raises the user's Defense and Special Defense by one stage each and charges up power for use with companion moves Spit Up or Swallow. Stockpile can be used up to three times before its companion moves, which will attack or recover HP respectively.

The power of Spit Up and HP gained from Swallow varies depending on how many times Stockpile was used. After one of those moves is used, the user loses the Defense and Special Defense boosts.

Changes

In Generations 1-3, Stockpile has 10 PP and it does not increase Defense nor Special Defense.

Z-Move effects

When a Pokémon is holding Normalium Z and uses its Z-Power, Stockpile turns into Z-Stockpile and fully restores the user's HP, in addition to its usual effect as above.
