TCG Stats

Diving Press TCG card

  • Attribute: Normal
  • Sign: None
  • Card Code: DKCG-086/160
  • Card Rarity: Common
  • Image From: 07 1st(+)/S2 1st arcade card
  • Effect:
+400 or +700; If a Rock Dinosaur uses this Move, it gains +700 Power instead of +400.


  • It was one of the first set of 15 Normal Moves released in the arcade game.
  • In the arcade game, a Dinosaur needs 900-1100 Technique to use this Move to full effect, thereby indicating those with 1000-1200 Power.
  • Although Diving Press animations are in the DS game data, there are no in-game move cards that use them.
  • As seen in the Gallery below, some dinosaur attacker and target combinations may cause it to appear as if the attacker isn't even biting the target; this is due to there only being one animation cycle for the Move, and as such, not all dinosaur model combinations will match up properly.
  • In real life, it would be impossible for most dinosaurs to perform this Move owing to the bite strength needed; only some large theropods and perhaps ceratopsians would have a sufficient bite strength, though the latter would be largely incapable of the needed leap.
  • Although Diving Press is a Normal Move Card, Don´t Mess With Maiasaura incorrectly shows a Grass Move with Maiasaura's card when it is recalled by Zoe's Stone and when Dr. Taylor holds the cards at the end. This was probably an animation mistake, because the D-Team rarely uses Normal Moves.
