Splash (Japanese: はねる Hop) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation I. Prior to Generation II, it was the signature move of Magikarp. It has no effect whatsoever in the main series games.

Effect

Main series

Generation I

Splash has no effect whatsoever. After selecting the move, it will simply show an animation, and then the message, "No effect!"

Generations II-III

Splash's message has changed to, "But nothing happened!"

Generation IV and on

In addition to its previous (lack of) effect, Splash now cannot be used while Gravity is in effect.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon

The user will move to a random different tile one ratio away. The user will inflict 5 damage to itself and the opponent if the move comes in contact with another Pokémon.

Pokémon Conquest

Splash has no area of effect or effect on the user, and thus does nothing but show its animation. However, the user can choose which direction to perform it in; this has no effect on the move itself, but the user will be left facing the same direction (and thus is not necessarily equivalent to waiting the turn, which would give the user no opportunity to change their facing). Unlike most moves in Pokémon Conquest, Splash can be used even if it would have no target (presumably because it never has a target).

Trivia

  • Splash is the only move that has been introduced that does nothing to either the opponent or the user. In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, however, a Pokémon using Splash will deal 5 damage to itself and its opponent if it comes in contact with any other Pokémon.
  • Every Pokémon that can learn Splash by leveling up learns it as a starting move.
  • No Generation V Pokémon are able to learn Splash.
  • While the English name suggests an association with water, the Japanese name, はねる (haneru), can mean both "splash" and "hop" (although usually the latter). This explains why the move can be learned naturally by Pokémon such as Spoink and Hoppip — species who have no association with water but are known for hopping or jumping and why Gravity disables it. The translation as "Splash" was likely due to the fact that it was only available to Magikarp when it was introduced.
  • Every dual-type Pokémon that can learn Splash are from Generation II and part Flying-type.
  • In the anime, Splash has been the result of Metronome more than any other attack.
