Dragon Rush (Japanese: ドラゴンダイブ Dragon Dive) is a damage-dealing Dragon-type move introduced in Generation IV.

Effect

Generations IV and V

Dragon Rush inflicts damage and has a 20% chance of causing the target to flinch.

Generation VI onward

If the target has used Minimize, Dragon Rush now deals double its regular damage and bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly.

Super Smash Bros. series

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U, Dragon Rush is a custom move for Charizard, replacing Flare Blitz. When used, Charizard will dash at the opponent while spinning. When the move makes contact, it will carry the opponent while repeatedly damaging them. Unlike Flare Blitz and Blast Burn, Dragon Rush will not cause Charizard to damage itself when used. Mega Charizard X uses the same move when the A button is pressed, except it can be used in many different directions.
