Rain Dance (Japanese: あまごい Rain Prayer) is a non-damaging Water-type move introduced in Generation II. It has been TM18 since Generation II.


Generation II

When this move is used, a rainfall will start on the field which will last for five turns. This clears any other weather effect and it's possible to use it even if it's already raining.

While Rain Dance is in effect, the base damage of using Water-type moves will be increased by 50% and the base damage of using SolarBeam and Fire-type moves will be decreased by 50%. Also, the moves Synthesis, Morning Sun, and Moonlight will recover only ¼ of the user's maximum HP.

Generation III

Rain Dance will fail if it's already raining.

A Pokémon with Rain Dish will restore 1/16 its maximum HP to itself after every turn, and a Pokémon with Swift Swim will be twice as fast in the rain.

Additionally, Castform and Weather Ball move become Water-type.

Generation IV

If a Damp Rock is held when Rain Dance is used, the duration of rainfall is lengthened from 5 to 8 turns. Pokémon with the Dry Skin Ability will regain ⅛ of their maximum HP at the end of each turn. Thunder will now be 100% accurate under Rain Dance's effect. Pokémon with Hydration will have their existing status ailments cured at the end of each turn.

In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, the move Thunder has a 30% chance of bypassing Protect and Detect under Rain Dance. This does not happen in any other versions.

Generation V

Hurricane and Thunder cannot miss under the effect of Rain Dance.
