Watch the episode where Ash gets the Soul badge from Koga. Leech Seed was used there. Basically, a parasite plant grows from the seed aimed at the targeted Pokemon and wraps itself around it, sucking HP from the poor Pokemon and giving (almost) all of it to the user (it probably survives by keeping a negligible amount for itself). It wears off when there's no HP left to absorb and it dies from lack of energy.

How's that? I could be wrong, but...

I had a hard time with surf. I still don't think I like the way it came out when I wrote it.
Sure, when you're on the ocean or a lake, that's not hard. But when you're miles away from a large body of water, or even in a pool where there is limited water, how would that work?

Hmm... You do have a very good point. But you forgot things like Dive, Waterfall, Whirlpool, etc. And just how do Ground Type Pokemon such as Diglett dig underwater without being affected, anyway?

What I know is that Earthquake, when used on a pokemon that is currently "digging" as in he used the move "dig", it will do more damage to it. While magnitude, the higher the number, the more attack power is has.

You know, I've always wondered that myself. Out in the middle of the ocean and you have them use Dig. Where exactly do they dig?
And as for Goldeen out of water, I've always had a problem with Wailord. How does it attack? All I can think of is a beached whale, can't do much of anything. ^^'

Oh wait. How about this. Pokemon can store huge amounts of water in their bodies. And out of water = out if PP for moves like Surf, Dive and Waterfall. And this water is also how Water-type Pokemon like Goldeen and Wailord keep themselves hydrated.

But I still have problems with Pokemon like Diglett and the move Dig... I'm trying to work that out now.

EDIT: And does Magnitude do double damage like Earthquake against Pokemon using Dig? Or does it do no damage? Just asking, thanks.

I guess so.

And I'm pretty sure the magnitude of the attack is still the only thing that matters, even with Dig.

the diglets can dig becuase they have little drills on their butts

I always thought surf was more of a like when your in the pool and the fat guy shouts "CANNON BALL" and the tsuami throws everyone out of the pool

But how does it deal double damage to Pokemon using Dive?

No. If your Pokemon uses Dive, and your opponent's Pokemon uses Surf against you, your Pokemon takes double damage. But yeah, Surf does 15 more damage in Generation IV and 35 in Generation III (Surf has 95 base power).

in the game the pokemon usually get hit, and stand there as if they are unconscious, then a blinking light hits them and the hp goes down.
