How much HP do substitute dolls have?

I read this from an answer by [ItsGuillotine:][1]

"Substitute only affects Focus Punch being interrupted by damage. Payback, Avalanche, etc. work normally and Counter and Mirror Coat are based on the Substitute's HP."

And that got me thinking.

I always knew that they had some, but how much did they actually have?

They take away 25%+1 hp from the 'mon that uses the move,

meaning:
If your pokémon has a total of 100 HP, the doll will have 26 HP.

Here are more info.

And the quote from Bulbapedia:
> Using 25% of its maximum HP, the user creates a substitute with 1 HP more than the amount of HP lost by the user. If the user's maximum HP is 3 or less, it will not lose any HP when the substitute is made. A substitute will have the same current type and current stats as the Pokémon that created it.
