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 lasts as long as the target remains in battle; however, changing form or transforming overrides the effect. Soak succeeds even if the target is already a pure Water-type Pokémon.
Soak does not affect Pokémon with the Ability Multitype. Soak fails if used on a substitute.
Generation VI onward
If used on a pure Water-type Pokémon, Soak's animation will still play, but the game will now state that the move has failed.
Soak can be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, with the user gaining an extra three appeal points if the move Rain Dance was used in the prior turn.
If powered up by a Waterium Z into Z-Soak, the user's Special Attack stat raises one stage.
| The user shoots a torrent of water at the target and changes the target's type to Water.
