Roar of Time (Japanese: ときのほうこう Roar of Time) is a damage-dealing Dragon-type move introduced in Generation IV. It is the signature move of Dialga.

Effect

Roar of Time inflicts damage and then forces the user to recharge during the next turn. Unless the move fails due to missing, type immunity, or is blocked by a protection move, the user will always have to recharge the next turn.

Generation VIII

In Versions 1.0 to 1.2.1 of Pokémon Sword and Shield, Roar of Time could not be selected in a battle. Starting with Version 1.3.0, it is usable and functions the same as it did in previous generations.

In Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, it can be selected and functions as it did in previous generations.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Roar of Time's base power has been lowered to 120. Instead of forcing the user to recharge, it lowers the user's action speed.

In Explorers of Time, Darkness and Sky, Roar of Time is a move with 24 base power, 4 PP and 80% accuracy. The user targets all enemies in the same room. If the move hits a Pokémon successfully, the user is inflicted with Paused status condition for 1-2 turns, preventing them from acting on these turns. In hallways, this move targets Pokémon up two tiles away (or one in one-tile darkness). This move is affected by Muzzled status condition.
