Wonder Guard?

Does this move hit Pokémon with Wonder Guard? And if so, does it mean that those Pokémon will only get hit by Electric and Grass moves? --RiverAura 01:59, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, Wonder Guard doesn't protect against status type moves. And yes, Electric and Grass are the only ones super effective against Water. Could be a fun surprise. PLA 15:47, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Does this mean there's a technique to removing Ground-type's immunity to Electric? Vemoth 00:31, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

Seems so. Someone gotta check this out.
But if its a Rhyhorn (or evolutions) with lightningrod, It may not work. Grhaal 21:55, 15 February 2011 (UTC)


Anyone is there any variations of these?Grhaal 21:56, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

Better animation

This may be more of a preference thing, but wouldn't it be better to have an animation of Soak being used on something that's, you know, not already a Water-type? →ΑΧΧΟΝΝfire 20:27, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

Palpitoad's Water/Ground, making Soak still have its normal effect. The only thing it fails on is pure Water, so a different animation is pointless. - Blazios talk 20:31, 1 December 2011 (UTC)


Does it work through Substitute? --- Pokémon Questions? -- 22:53, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

No. --SnorlaxMonster 11:15, 30 March 2012 (UTC)


Do you remember in EP005, where Ash's Pikachu's Thunderbolt did damage to Brock's Onix, in the first part the attack appeared to not make damage but then the sprinklers literally soaked Onix so Pikachu could attack it, much like it is done to remove Ground's Immunity to Electric, is this really notable to put on the article? And yeah I know that the attack hadn't been introduced at the time but it is interesting to note isn't it?--Igor (talk) 16:36, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

The anime does this stuff all the time, if you didn't know, please look at this page -Clubchloe1 03:11, 14 August 2012 (UTC)


If I soak an Electric-type Pokémon, will its Discharge still get STAB or will it be without? --Abcboy (talk) 03:50, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

No, because it's now a Water type. - Blazios talk 08:52, 21 October 2012 (UTC)
