In other generations
- Quiver Dance, along with fellow Generation V moves Coil and Shell Smash, are the only status moves that raise three different stats at once during one turn.
- Geomancy is a move introduced in Generation VI that is very similar to Quiver Dance, in that it boosts Special Attack, Special Defense, and Speed. Geomancy is essentially the equivalent of two Quiver Dances, but requires a charge turn and has half of the PP.
