*User loses their Flying type

Roost is a health restoring Flying-type move. It is TM51 and found on Route 10 by surfing east from the EV trainer house in versions 1.04 and beyond.

Roost restores half of the user's maximum HP.
If a Flying-type Pokémon successfully uses Roost, it will lose its Flying type until the end of the turn:

  • If a pure Flying-type Pokémon successfully uses Roost, it will become Normal-type until the end of the turn.
  • If a Pokémon with another type besides Flying uses Roost, it will simply lose its Flying type until the end of the turn.

Losing Flying type is the only way Roost can make an ungrounded Pokémon grounded : i.e. using Roost does not negate the effects of Air Balloon, Levitate, Telekinesis and Magnet Rise, regardless of the user's typing.
