Belly drum was one of the moves that I used to find intimidating when I started playing Pokémon. 😲 I found it to be risky because losing half of your HP is quite demoralizing.
However, after using it for some time, I finally discovered the best Pokémon to teach belly drum. I later learned that many newbies have similar sentiments.
Therefore, I decided to create this post to share with you more on what Pokémon can learn belly drum.

Only use it when you are sure that your
Pokémon is not about to faint in the next attack.
How to get belly drum in Pokémon
You can obtain a belly drum in Pokémon Scarlet Violet by copying it from a Pokémon that has already learned the move.
For instance, Makuhita and its evolutionary forms like Iron Hands and Hariyama can help you obtain belly drum since it learns this move in the game.
When your Pokémon learns belly drum in Scarlet and Violet, you then have to copy it by getting some Mirror Herbs.
This item lets you transfer moves from one Pokémon to another. You can buy Mirror Herbs from the Delibird Presents Shop.
The only way you can unlock the shop is by beating 6 Gym leaders. After getting a Mirror Herb, use it from the inventory and copy Belly Drum onto the Pokémon you want. It’s that easy 😌
How much damage can Pokémon deal with belly drum move?
When a Pokémon uses the belly drum move, it can deduct 50% of the user’s maximum HP from its current HP.
In return, this move maximizes the user’s attack stat and raises it to over 6 stages regardless of the original stage before using the move.
Though watching your HP draining away is not a good feeling, you can learn how to use the belly drum to move effectively.
For instance, when you pair it with Sitrus Berry, you can gain 25% of its HP back. Consider using this move on Pokémon that will not hurt you much, such as dark types.
