- This article is about the move Rain Dance. For the field move, see Field Move.
Rain Dance (Japanese: あまごい Rain Prayer) is a non-damaging Template:Type2 move introduced in 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.
While Rain Dance is in effect, the base power of Template:Type2 moves will be increased by 50% and the base power of SolarBeam and Template:Type2 moves will be decreased by 50%. Also, the moves Synthesis, Morning Sun, and Moonlight will recover only ¼ of the user's maximum HP. Thunder will be 100% accurate under Rain Dance's effect.
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.
