Dragon Dance (Japanese: りゅうのまい Dragon Dance) is a non-damaging Dragon-type move introduced in Generation III.

Effect

Dragon Dance raises the user's Attack stat and Speed stat by one stage each.

If powered up by a Dragonium Z into Z-Dragon Dance, all of the user's lowered stats are reset.

Dragon Dance can be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining an extra appeal point if either the move DragonBreath or Dragon Rage was used in the prior turn. It can also be used to start a combination, causing DragonBreath, Dragon Claw and Dragon Rage to have their base appeal points doubled if used in the next turn.
