Gravity (Japanese: じゅうりょく Gravity) is a non-damaging Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation IV.

Effect

Gravity disables moves that requires the user to go into the air, including Bounce, Fly, Splash, Jump Kick and Hi Jump Kick, and the moves that require levitation such as Magnet Rise. If a Pokémon is using Fly or Bounce when Gravity comes into effect, it will immediately be stopped.

It also disables the immunity of Template:Type2 Pokémon and Pokémon with the Levitate ability to Template:Type2 moves. Spikes, Toxic Spikes and Arena Trap will also affect the Flying-type Pokémon and the Pokémon with Levitate. It also decreases the Evasion of all Pokémon in battle by two stages.

After five turns, the intense gravity will wear off, much like a weather condition (though weather conditions do not supersede it). Gravity will supersede the effects of Telekinesis.

Generation V

In Generation V, Gravity activates a glitch in double and triple battles that can cause a Pokémon to be stuck in the semi-invulnerable state of Freefall until it faints. It is activated when Gravity is used while two Pokémon are in the semi-invulnerable state of Freefall. Gravity will bring the user of Freefall down, while the target will be stuck in the semi-invulnerable state, unable to move, until it is knocked out.

Trivia

  • Arceus is the only Pokémon who learns Gravity in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum that is affected by it (though only when holding a Sky Plate).
    • However, when Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver introduced a move tutor for Gravity, Lunatone, Solrock, Baltoy, Claydol, Chimecho, Chingling, Bronzor, Bronzong, Giratina (Origin Forme), and Cresselia can all have their Levitate ability negated by a self-imposed Gravity.
  • Magnemite, Magneton, Mew, Forretress, Nosepass, Metang, Metagross, Magnezone, Probopass, and Dialga can all learn Gravity and Magnet Rise, a move with the opposite effect of Gravity and which is negated by Gravity.
    • Of these, Probopass is the only one who can learn both moves by leveling up: the others require a move tutor for at least one of them.
