Splash (Japanese: はねる Hop) is a non-damaging Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation I. Prior to Generation II, it was the signature move of Magikarp. It has no effect whatsoever.

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 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.

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.
  • 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.
    • This could also explain why Splash is not Template:Type2, as well.
    • It's battle animation does however involve what appear to be water droplets.
