Dragon Rush (Japanese: ドラゴンダイブ Dragon Dive) is a damage-dealing Dragon-type move introduced in Generation IV.

Effect

Generation IV

Dragon Rush inflicts damage and has a 20% chance of causing the target to flinch.

Generation V

Dragon Rush is no longer affected by King's Rock.

Generation VI onwards

If the target has used Minimize, Dragon Rush now deals double its regular damage and bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly.

Super Smash Bros. series

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U, Dragon Rush is a custom move for Charizard, replacing Flare Blitz. When used, Charizard will dash at the opponent while spinning. When the move makes contact, it will carry the opponent while repeatedly damaging them. Unlike Flare Blitz and Blast Burn, Dragon Rush will not cause Charizard to damage itself when used. Mega Charizard X uses the same move when the A button is pressed, except it can be used in many different directions.

Pokémon UNITE

In Pokémon UNITE, Dragon Rush is Garchomp's first move. It is obtained by evolving into Gabite at level 5 and upgrading Sand Attack into it instead of Dig. The user jumps back, and briefly channels before diving forward, dragging all enemies within a small radius to the designated area and reducing damage taken by 35%, then deals damage in a radius. The user can use Dragon Claw during the first half of the channel to provide two more hits and replace the radial damage at the end of the move with a damaging stun and slow. At level 11, the user becomes unstoppable during this move.
