I'm gonna lean in with yes...
"All the Pokémon's moves become the Normal type."
By the way, nice question! :D

Yes, it would.

  1. Ability kicks in from the start of the battle.
  2. Dig is used.
  3. This triggers the Normal Gem.
  4. Since the ability kicks in before the Gem, Dig's power is increased.

Even if the game says the Normal Gem is activated on the "first turn charge-up", what it means is when the move actually strikes.
