Waterfall (Japanese: たきのぼり Waterfall Climb) is a damage-dealing Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation I. It was the first move to gain HM status in a generation after it was introduced, doing so in Generation II.

Effect

In battle

Generation I-III

Waterfall does damage.

Generation IV

Along with damage, Waterfall also has a 20% chance of causing the target to flinch.

Outside of battle

Generation II and on

Allows players to climb waterfalls. Note that in Generations II and III, the HM move Waterfall is not required to go down waterfalls, whereas the first two games of Generation IV requires the HM. However, in Pokémon Platinum, the HM is not required to surf downwards.

In the anime

Finneon. It releases a jet of water from its mouth which takes the shape of a column of water.
