- This article is about the move Soak. For the Field Move in Pokémon Ranger games, see Field Move.
Soak (Japanese: みずびたし Waterlog) is a non-damaging Water-type move introduced in Generation V.
Soak changes the target's type to pure Water; the effect only lasts as long as the target is in battle, but changing form or transforming will remove the effect.
In Generation V, if used on a pure Water-type Pokémon, the moves does not behave differently to any other target; in Generation VI, the animation will still play but the game will state that the move failed after the animation.
Soak does not affect Pokémon with the Ability Multitype. Soak fails if used on a substitute.
|| The user shoots a torrent of water at the target and changes the target's type to Water.
