A very appealing move, but after using this move, the user is more easily startled.

Water Spout (Japanese: しおふき Water Spout) is a damage-dealing Water-type move introduced in Generation III.

Effect

Water Spout deals damage. It has 150 base power at maximum HP, but its base power decreases proportionally to the user's remaining HP.

Specifically, its base power is equal to . However, if this formula produces a value less than 1, the move's base power becomes 1 instead.

In a battle with multiple opponents, Water Spout will target all adjacent opponents. Water Spout will also destroy stalagmites found in the background of battles.

Water Spout can be used as the second move of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining 1 bonus appeal point if Rain Dance was used in the previous turn.

Trivia

  • Water Spout is tied with Hydro Cannon for having the highest base power of all Water-type attacks, excluding Z-Moves, Max Moves, and G-Max Moves.
    • A Hydro Vortex based on either of them has the highest base power of all Water-type moves.
  • In Generation III, the magnitude and duration of the enemy's shaking in the Water Spout attack animation depends on the calculated base power.
    • This is not bounded by full power; if the user's HP is above its max HP, for example with Pomeg glitch, the enemy will shake further and longer than intended.
