Edit: this should probably be the case for all tiers that it has an analysis.
I think this is pretty arguable. I use alomomola a lot and usualy prefer waterfall. Hitting a bit harder with waterfall helps alomomola break certan subs since alomomola usualy prefers pokes to be toxiced rather than burned (although some things set there ev's in function of momo's waterfall anyway). In the same way, burning something like tangela or opposing alomomola is an annoying thing because you wanted those toxiced. Talking about opposing alomomolas, My own waterfall turned out being just strong enough to kill off things my opponent tried wishpassing to while I had alomomola in, scald would have failed to do so and let those pokes get back to full health. Waterfall is also better when facing zangoose or guts ursaring, 2 of the things that can actually wallbreak momo. In the end, momo is already using another status to damage the majority of pokes and will prefer waterfall against all of those. While you have a certan chance of burning stuff momo can't damage on the switch (like amoonguss), you'd probably be better simply using wish and passing it to you're next poke rather than praying for a burn. Waterfall also gets occasional flinches.
Scald should certanly be mentioned somwhere, but imo waterfall should stay the main option.
