Effect

In battle

The user burrows underground on the first turn, avoiding all following attacks for that turn, except for Earthquake, Fissure and Magnitude, which deals double the damage to the user than 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.
