Surf

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority
Water 95 100% 15 0

Description

Deals damage. In-game it allows you to travel across water.

Competitive Use

As one of the two competitive HM moves, sporting high Base Power and perfect accuracy, Surf is available to almost every Water-type Pokémon and is often their main special STAB attack. However, due to the non-comprehensive coverage of Water-type attacks, it should not be the only damaging move in the moveset, or its user is easily walled by Grass-, Dragon-, and other Water-type Pokemon.

Related Moves

Hydro Pump is a much more powerful alternative, but it has lower accuracy and fewer PP.
