Drain Crown Has No Cooldown

Unlike Shell Bell, Drain Crown does not have a cooldown that inhibits it from converting damage to HP! It's a simple and effective way to add lifesteal to your builds!

Shell Bell Effect and How to Get

Increased Healing on Crits

After testing multiple times, it seems that healing would proportionally increase if the hit is a critical-hit! It's still good to slot in Critical Hit items whenever you're equipped with a Drain Crown.

Items That Increase Critical Hits

Item Effect
Scope Lens ImageScope Lens Critical Hit Rate +6%
Critical Hit Damage +12%
Increases damage dealt by basic attack critical hits. The higher the Pokemon's Attack, the more the damage increases.
Razor Claw ImageRazor Claw Attack +15
Critical-Hit Rate +2.1%
After the Pokemon uses a move, its next basic attack deals a minimum of (10/15/20) damage. The higher the Pokemon's Attack, the more this damage increases. When this item is held by a melee Pokemon, this basic attack also decreases the movement speed of opposing Pokemon for a short time.

Critical Hit Guide: Critical Rate and Critical Damage

Doesn't Trigger Against Shielded Targets

The healing effect won't trigger against shielded targets. This means the item holder must shred through the shield first and damage the target directly for the effect to trigger.

Triggers if the Damage is Greater than the Shield

If the damage dealt to the shielded target is greater than the shield's threshold, the healing effect will still trigger.

Hi! Based on our findings, it does work with Meteor Mash. However, Metagross already has lifesteal starting at level 5, so the item wouldn't be necessary for the Pokemon.

Does this work with meteor mash wind-up and final punch on metagross?
