Dive (Japanese: ダイビング Diving) is a damage-dealing Water-type move introduced in Generation III. It was HM08 in Generation III, HM06 in Generation V and HM07 in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. In Generation VIII, it is TM45.

Effect

In battle

Generation III

On the first turn, the user will dive down for one turn and become invulnerable to most attacks, with the exception of Surf and Whirlpool, which will do twice the damage to the submerged Pokémon. The user can also be hit underwater if it was previously targeted by Lock-On or Mind Reader. Sandstorm, hail, and Shadow Sky will not cause damage during the semi-invulnerable turn.

Pokémon can be caught during the semi-invulnerable stage of Dive.

Dive's base power is 60.

Dive can be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining extra two appeal points if either the move Rain Dance or Surf was used in the prior turn. It can also be used to start a combination, causing Surf to give extra three appeal points if used in the next turn.

Generation IV

Dive's base power was raised to 80.

Pokémon can no longer be caught during the semi-invulnerable stage of Dive.

If a Power Herb is held by the user, Dive can be executed in one turn.

The user may now be hit while underwater if it is attacked by a Pokémon with No Guard, or if the user has No Guard themselves. If Surf or Whirlpool hit a Pokémon during the semi-invulnerable turn of Dive, the move's power will be doubled instead of the damage dealt (resulting in virtually the same effect).

Generation V onward

If Surf or Whirlpool hit a Pokémon during the semi-invulnerable turn of Dive, the damage dealt will be doubled instead of the move's power (resulting in virtually the same effect).

Dive triggers Gulp Missile.

Outside of battle

Dive allows players to go underwater in dark patches of water while they are surfing. The only regions in which these spots (and the HM itself) have been seen are Hoenn and Unova. Thus, it is only an HM in Generations III, V, and VI.

In Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald and Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the Mind Badge is required to use Dive outside of battle.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

In Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, and Explorers of Time, Darkness and Sky, Dive is a move with 12 base power, 100% accuracy, and 12 PP, attacking enemy in the front; this move's damage is doubled at the end of damage calculation. While the user is underwater, projectiles will pass the user as if their tile was empty. As in main series, the user can still be hit by Surf and Whirlpool. This move can be used only on a water tile (including the shallow water in water dungeons); it will fail if used on any other type of tile. If the water was drained with Drought Orb while in middle of Dive, the user will still attempt to attack, but fail due to not being on a water tile. Due to being a two-turn move, this move cannot be linked.

MDRB The user gains the Diving status, making it attack strongly on the next turn. It is not possible to link this move. It can't be used without water.
MDTDS Gives the user a Diving status, which causes the Pokémon to charge power for 1 turn, then try a powerful attack on the next turn. You can't link this move and can use it only on water.

Trivia

  • Unlike Whirlpool and Defog, which can be freely known by a Pokémon sent forward to Generation V when said Pokémon is transferred from a game they are not an HM in, a Pokémon with Dive will be prevented from being migrated to Generation IV even in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, where Dive is not usable, required, or available to the player without trading.
  • Dive is the only HM move not to have been featured in the anime so far.
  • Dive has had the most individual numbers of any HM move, having been HM06, HM07, and HM08 in different generations.
