Now, since Swift doesn't hit em anymore, what attacks will hit a pokemon while they are flying? What will hit a digger?

a Lock on'd move or a mind reader'd move hit. There's also these. the moves Gust and Twister Hit and do double damage if the pokemon is in flight. Also, this info. comes in most handy really, If a pokemon is stuck in dig and the other one does E-quake. It does double damage. *note* never give a fire type dig anymore

Also, Faint Attack will hit if they use Dig or Fly.

Magnitude and (I think) Fissure will also hit a Digging Pokémon.


Charizard, Ledyba, and Ledian can Dig without fear of retaliation as long as they're underground. They may be underground, but they're still Flying-types and therefore immune to Ground-type attacks.

Kingdra The horsea: ...thunder has a 99.6% chance of hiting when a pokemon is in flight.
only if rain dance is in effect. otherwise, its accuracy is the usual 69.5%.

cmsnrub25: Also, Faint Attack will hit if they use Dig or Fly.
damn, i've never even tested that. *jots it down*

PikachuThunder: Magnitude and (I think) Fissure will also hit a Digging Pokémon.
both true, at their usual accuracies, and magnitude does double damage.

Now we r getting a bit of topic with this one but, what are the conditions of fissure? Are they still the same on a digging poke? Or do the chances increase/decrease? And is the level restriction still in effect (i.e. Lower level can not hit a higher level with fissure...EVER)

------------------

fissure's the same, whether digging or not.

With Fly, the user receives double damage from Gust and Twister, but does not receive damage from attacks other than Gust, Thunder, Twister, and Whirlwind.

With Dig, the user receives double damage from Earthquake and Magnitude, but does not receive damage from attacks other than Earthquake, Fissure, and Magnitude.

No one. ^_^ But Whirlwind will still work when someone is using Fly (at least according to Stadium 2).

Aww, looks like poor Poccil forgot to plagarize Thunder in that list.

For those who haven't actually tested it, Faint Attack does not hit Flying nor Digging Pokémon.

actually, just as thunder doesn't have improved accuracy against fliers, it also doesn't do double damage.
