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, Splash will deal 5 damage to both any foe in the way of the attack and the user.
  • Splash was originally the signature move of Magikarp, but since Generation II, other Pokémon have been able to learn it.
  • Every Pokémon that can learn Splash by leveling up learns it as a starting move.
  • 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.
