Dig is a ground-type physical move introduced in Generation I. It has been TM28 since Generation I.

Description

The attacker digs underground in the first turn, then pops up in the next turn to attack.

Effect

In Battle

While underground, the user avoids all attacks except Earthquake, Fissure and Magnitude, and will receive double the damage from them that they would have normally done.

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.

Contests

Can avoid being startled by others.

Super Contests

Earn +3 if no Pokémon has chosen the same Judge.

Contest Spectaculars

Prevents the user from being startled one time this turn.
