Water 60 100% 20 0 Special Single non-user

Description

Deals damage and has a 20% chance to confuse the target.

Competitive Use

The only viable competitive use of this move is on Serene Grace Jirachi in rain for the extra confusion chance, as Surf, Scald, and Hydro Pump are all superior options otherwise. You could use it on Nasty Plot Technician Persian if you really wanted to, but…

Related Moves

Scald is a more powerful alternative that has a chance to burn the opponent.

Surf is a more powerful alternative.

Hydro Pump is a much more powerful but less accurate alternative.
