Every category of healing move counts, even Leech Seed, even though it doesn’t immediately heal you, it counts. I just am curious. So this is including every gen, 1-8.

Thanks in advance :)

That’s very outdated, it was asked in 2013.
Only new healing moves after that are grassy terrain and shore up
And Oblivion Wing and Draining Kiss....

Probably more as well.
