Dragon Breath (Japanese: りゅうのいぶき Dragon Breath), formatted as DragonBreath prior to Pokémon X and Y, is a damage-dealing Dragon-type move introduced in Generation II. It was TM24 in Generation II.

Effect

Dragon Breath inflicts damage and has a 30% chance of paralyzing the target.

Dragon Breath can be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining an extra appeal point if either the move Dragon Dance or Dragon Rage was used in the prior turn. It can also be used to start a combination, causing Dragon Claw, Dragon Dance and Dragon Rage to have their base appeal points doubled if used in the next turn.
