Rain Dance

Rain Dance

Rain Dance (TM18 in Generation II, Generation III, Generation IV, Generation V and Generation VI) is one of four moves used to initiate weather, in this case rain.

Upon use of Rain Dance, the weather on the battlefield changes to rain for five turns (eight turns if the user is holding a Damp Rock). Rain has many different effects on the battlefield and the Pokémon in it.

Rain causes Water attacks to have their Base Power increased by 50% and Fire attacks to have their Base Power decreased by 50%.

Solarbeam requires two turns to charge and has its Base Power reduced by 50%; Thunder and Hurricane will always hit and have a 30% chance to hit through Protect or Detect; Moonlight, Morning Sun and Synthesis all restore 25% of the user's HP; Weather Ball has its Base Power doubled and becomes the Water type.

Pokémon with Dry Skin heal 12.5% of their HP each turn; Pokémon with Forecast become the Water type; Pokémon with Hydration have their status cured each turn; Pokémon with Rain Dish heal 6.25% of their HP each turn; Pokémon with Swift Swim have their Speed doubled.

Rain can also be activated if a Pokémon with Drizzle is sent into the battlefield. In this case, the rain lasts until another weather condition is activated.
