PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

So I'm playing through Yellow, and training up my Dugtrio in victory road, I've noticed a Pokemon using Dig doesn't get affected by Earthquake, kinda a minor thing, and might just be the emulator, but for accuracy sake maybe add it to the desc of both Earthquake and Dig? Pretty sure it's only a first gen thing

Yes, Dig avoids Earthquake in Gen I. This was changed in Gen II.

Generation I
On the turn that Dig is selected, the user will dig underground and become semi-invulnerable, where the only attacks it cannot avoid are Bide, Swift, and Transform.

Generations II and III
The user can now be hit by Earthquake, Magnitude, and Fissure during the semi-invulnerable turn, and will receive double damage from Earthquake and Magnitude.
