Effect

In battle

The user burrows underground on the first turn, and if the user is fast enough, it will avoid all attacks targeted at it. The only attacks the user will have no escape from are Earthquake, Fissure and Magnitude. When Earthquake, Fissure or Magnitude are used on the user while it is underground, the damage to the user will be doubled from what it would have done if the user was surfaced. On the next turn, the user resurfaces and attacks the target. In a Double Battle, Dig can target any Pokémon around the user. In a Triple Battle, Dig can only target a Pokémon that's adjacent to the user.

Outside of battle

In Generation I, when used in caves, it transports the player to the last Pokémon Center they stopped off at. In Generation II and onwards, when used in caves, it transports the player to where they entered the cave.
