From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Scald (Japanese: ねっとう Boiling Water) is a damage-dealing Water-type move introduced in Generation V. It was TM55 from Generation V until Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, where it was TM29. It is TR84 in Generation VIII.
Scald inflicts damage and has a 30% chance of burning the target. Upon execution, Scald will thaw the user if frozen (even if the move fails to hit the target).
Generation VI onward
Scald now also thaws a frozen target hit by it.
