Water Pledge (Japanese: みずのちかい Water Oath) is a damage-dealing Water-type move introduced in Generation V.


Water Pledge inflicts regular damage, with double damage and an additional effect when combined with Fire Pledge or Grass Pledge in double or Triple Battles. The combined move uses the second user who used a pledge to calculate damage.

If it and Fire Pledge are used in the same turn, it will double the probability of secondary effects taking place for four turns. This effect does not stack with Serene Grace.

If it and Grass Pledge are used in the same turn, it will come out as Grass Pledge, and decreases the speed of all foes by half for four turns.

Similar to Fire Pledge and Grass Pledge, Water Pledge is unaffected by Water Gem (and will not consume it).


Games Description
BWB2W2 A column of water strikes the target. When combined with its fire equivalent, the damage increases and a rainbow appears.


By Move Tutor

In Black and White and Black 2 and White 2, a man in Driftveil City and a man outside the Pokémon World Tournament building respectively, will teach Water Pledge to any Water-type Starter Pokémon and their respective evolutions. Water-type starter Pokémon and their evolutions are the only Pokémon who can learn this move.
