Outside of battle
While surfing, if you happen over a dark patch of water, you can dive below the surface and explore underwater. It can only be used with the appropriate Gym Badge.
Two regions have areas where you can use Dive: Hoenn (Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, and the remakes Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire) and Unova (Black, White, Black 2, White 2) and the move is an HM in those games.
