TM19 Giga Drain Details + Uses
|Giga Drain Move Details|
Giga Drain is a Special Grass-type attack that features a modest 60 base Power. Although the most useful aspect of this move is its secondary effect:
The user recovers 50% of the damage it inflicted as HP.
So even though Giga Drain can be a good way to recover health in battle, it is ultimately held back by its low PP of 5. And at its middling power level, restoring sufficient HP can be a challenge.
But let’s say you want to use this move in your party.
Who should you teach it to?
Giga Drain can’t be learned via level-up by any Grass-type in FireRed or LeafGreen. So it’s worth teaching TM19 to a Grass Pokémon with high Special Attack, such as Exeggutor, Venusaur, Victreebel, or Vileplume.
