Default Re: Attacks and Abilities Guide

Generally electric attacks made underwater can't be directed the way they can on land because the water will conduct them in all directions. They are also weakened for the same reason. Anything in the water within the attack's normal range will take damage at half the attack's normal base power; secondary effects are retained but in the case of charge beam still get only one roll to activate.

As for the second question, volt absorb does not work against a pokémon's own attacks, so no, an unerwater thunderbolt from a chinchou with volt absorb would not cause it to regain health.
