If we're going by the games' logic, then yes it does.

IIRC this depends on how Rest is reffed. Some refs make Rest recover health all in one go, while others split the recovered health over each action the pokémon is asleep (since Rest is always a three-action sleep). Fwiw the flavor text in the Database seems to encourage the latter interpretation, in which case the health gain stops abruptly when woken up, and however much has already been regained is what the pokémon is stuck with.

That said, I'm curious how this ties into the "resto chesto" strategy in the games, where you have the pokémon use Rest while holding a Chesto berry to restore all health in one go. A ruling on that might be useful.

For those in ASB Battles that I happen to be reffing, I have several habits that deviate from most other refs. These can be found in this document, and involve mostly stat modifications and status conditions, as well as other clarifications regarding the specifics of certain attacks.

Does Defense Curl affect the damage of Rollout as it does in the games?

Yup.

Since rest normally restores health over the course of three actions, the pokémon will gain as much health as is appropriate for the number of actions it stays asleep and no more. So if it sleeps for only one action before waking up, it will regain 33% of its health and have status healed. This still counts as one use of a direct-healing attack for attacks that have a restriction on those, even though the user didn't get the attack's full benefit.

A pokémon with a chesto berry will heal 33% health and any major status, then wake up.
