Effects

Swallow recovers a varying amount of HP depending on how many times the user has used Stockpile. It recovers 25%, 50% or 100% of the user's maximum HP if the user stockpiled one, two or three times respectively.

Swallow also removes the Defense and Special Defense boosts given through Stockpile.

Z-Move effects

When a Pokémon is holding Normalium Z and uses its Z-Power, Swallow turns into Z-Swallow and eliminates any stat drops applied to the user, in addition to its usual effect as above.
