Rain Dance is a non-damaging Water-type move. It is TM18.


When this move is used, a rainfall will start on the field. This effect will last for 5 turns. This clears any other weather effect. This move fails if it is already raining.

If a Damp Rock is held when Rain Dance is used, the duration of rainfall lengthens from 5 to 8 turns.

While Rain Dance is in effect:

  • The base power of Water-type moves will be increased by 50%, whereas the base power of SolarBeam and Fire-type moves will be decreased by 50%.
  • The moves Synthesis, Morning Sun, and Moonlight will recover 1/4 of the user's maximum HP.
  • Hurricane and Thunder ignore accuracy and evasion.
  • Weather Ball becomes Water-type.
  • Pokémon with Dry Skin will regain 1/8 of their maximum HP at the end of each turn.
  • Pokémon with Hydration will have their existing status conditions cured at the end of each turn.
  • A Pokémon with Rain Dish will restore 1/16 its maximum HP to itself after every turn.
  • A Pokémon with Swift Swim will be twice as fast in the rain.


The user summons a heavy rain that falls for five turns, powering up Water-type moves.
