Top Ten Pokemon Water Moves

The Top Ten

1 Hydro Pump

I have this move on my gyarados, and it destroys any rock or fire typer it hits. the only problem is that it's accuracy is only 80, so when I miss I get hit. (i've missed 3 times in a row before).

Um...… I'm not a huge fan of water types, but this move is definitely my favorite.

Always powerful but does have 80 percent accuracy. Still a useful move to have.

It's a good move for blastiose and others like Tentacool.. Etc

2 Surf

I just like it

Unless the other pokemon uses dive, fly, dig or any move that allows it to disappear on the 1st try. This move does not miss what so ever. If you're doing double or triple battles, be careful cause it will hit your team as well. My opinion...this is the best water move for water Pokémon.

It's a great move can't wait til my wartortle learns it

Best move

3 Hydro Cannon

Broken move

I've naver seen a move the power of 150 plus 90 accuracy
this move is just OP.

This is much better than the others!

Are you kidding?! Right know I'm thinking not just the grass type Pokemon list, but this list even more is so false (none of the other lists are stupid. ) Hydro cannon does much more damage than hydro pump, and as one comment said on hydro pump, hydro pump is better than surf, meaning that hydro cannon does more than 8X THE DAMAGE! DO YOU HEAR ME? 8 TIMES! AND HYDRO CANNON IS BETTER THAN HYDRO PUMP!

4 Crabhammer


Exclusive to Krabby, Kingler, Corphish, Crawdaunt, Clauncher and Clawitzer (ie: the crabs). An epic move with a power of 100, accuracy of 90 AND it raises the chance of critical hits.

5 Rain Dance

Many people don't notice this at first but it helps for abilities like hydration.

I forgot something, it also works with dry skin the healing, and rain dance lowers power of fire types

What the heck? This is the 2nd worst (after splash) water movee in the ' game

Rain Dance is great. More Water-type power(Rain Dance STAB w. Mystic Water on a Camerupt=1260 power)
and less Fire type power. Not to mention more Thunder+Hurricane accuracy.

6 Aqua Jet

I love the way it looks when a pokemon uses is

Olmsted every water type known it though it does do damage to itself if used against rock. Types

7 Water Spout

OP! Like V-create as 180 base power

My wailord had this and he and I totalled the champion

Scarily powerful. It was so overpowering! 150 damage! Only Wailord, Wailmer, Kyogre, Frillish, and Jellicent knows it. Oh my goodness

Much better than Hydro Cannon. - noo7na7

8 Water Pulse

My greninja has it

Nice have power60(3 star attack) and 100 acc that can confuse sometime too

Demolishes and may confuse the target, gave it to lv 21 dewwot and he wrecked a lv 19 servine.

9 Scald

Its quite cool you can burn opponents with a water move

What's the point of this list? Anyway, I'll vote cause I'm bored. Scald has a 30% chance of burn, which is pretty good halving the opponent's attack. This makes it dangerous for physical attackers to switch in as they could be burnt and possibly crippled for the rest of the match. Only Fire-types are immune to burn, and they are weak to water moves, so no one is safe except for stuff with Rest, Natural Cure, Heal Bell or Aromatherapy I guess. Guts users can also take advantage of the burn to activate their ability and get 1.5 attack. If we're talking about in-game thought, Surf is definitely the best. You have to use it to go to a lot of places, and Surf is powerful, accurate, and has quite a lot of PP.

Gotta love scald. 30% burn chance, and great power. 100 accuracy too. And it doesn't make you recharge or anything.

Scald is arguably one of the best, ps HOW IS HYDRO CANNON HIGHER ON THE LIST!? Surf, yeah I get it, best hm, but Hydrocannon? I feel as though people don't understand the uselessness of that move.

10 Razor Shell

I also used this move a lot in Pokemon black 2
hooray for Razor Shell :D

I use this a lot on the game Pokemon White 2. It is very helpful. I'm glad they made this move.

I have never lost a single battle in black and black 2! All thanks to this move

My signature move

The Contenders

11 Waterfall

Kind of like scald, but for physical attackers and without burn possibility

Useful on Azumarill. however, it is outclassed completely by Liquidation.

Latios can learn this move!

Why is rain dance #4?!

12 Aqua Tail

It has quite low accuracy but it quite powerful when it hits. This should be quite close to the top.

The worst if you miss but it packs a punch

My blastoise used this a lot

Aqua tail is great

13 Water Shuriken

This AWESOME move is used by the SO OP greninja. Totally should be number 1, and better than hydro pump, of course.

It hits more than once! A really awesome attack

This move is so weak. Greninja is so overrated and its fans are oblivious, it's not as strong as people think it is and is beaten easily.

Great move, but low damage

14 Origin Pulse

I just bulldozed through ghost type elite four with this. (I almost forget ethers but was glad I didn't)

How to bulldoze over the Elite 4.

Origin pulse is the best water type move. When I caught my Kyogre it had already learned the move. When it went into its Primal form, 99.9 percent of the time it was a one-hour KO.

One shots everything stronger than surf

15 Hyper Beam

Hyper Beam isn't water! Whoever is writing this list clearly hasn't played Pokemon

This is the best water move in the books



16 Splash and Water Gun

I'm starting my own Pokemon Club looking at these for my Pokemon test it's not my test it's like a test for other people to get into Pokemon club I'm the leader and scald is number one a water type moves

Splash is a normal type move...

Should be number one. Probably the best water type moves this world has ever seen.

Actually, splash goes around the HP bar twice so you don't notice the damage. And if a really strong Pokemon only uses splash on yours, your Pokemon will hate you after the battle. - FennikenFan9

17 Hydro Vortex

This is a z move nit should be at the top

A tornado of water, literally.

18 Splash

2 things wrong with this:
1: Splash is a normal type move. If it were water type, Magikarp would get STAB.
2:It's weak.

God tier

The best move.

19 Aqua Ring

What the heck.. why is this on here? It only regens 10 hp every turn.

20 Bubble Beam


21 Razor Leaf

How is this a water type move?!

22 Brine

This move is amazing! My blastoise used this to knockout rlite four and my rival it should be on 1or3

23 Steam Eruption

It is water u nut

Please. Stop. These are fire type moves. The guy who made blue flare and steam eruption is a retarded moron

Best water type move of 2016.

Steam eruption is a water type move, does 110 damage and has a 30% chance of burn. X1000 better than scald it should be number1!

24 Double-Edge

Who care about recoil on a pokemon with high hp

25 Sparkling Aria

Beautiful animation

26 Water Tackle
27 Aerial Ace
28 Liquidation

It's the best physical water move and has a chance to lower Attack, instantly amazing

29 Flamethrower Flamethrower

Best water move

It’s a fantastic move, it has killed many.

This is not even a water type move

30 Ice Beam

Ice beam is a ice type move.


31 Oceanic Operetta

It's a z move only used by Primarina(I think) and I love the way it looks.

32 Dragon Claw

Great water type move would use again


33 Soak

First time I heard that move


34 Blue Flare

Whoever made this an option is an idiot.

Blue flare is the best water type move lol


35 Water Gun

How is water gun on this list?

36 Bubble
37 Eruption

Used by primal kyogre

38 Tackle


The best

39 Ice Punch
40 Withdraw
41 Roar of Time
42 Water Sport

Weaken's the power of fire type moves

43 Dive


44 Muddy Water

It's like surf expect dirty

45 Fire Blast

Best water type move in the game.

46 V-create

Best attack I have ever seen
Be careful while using that attack more dangerous

47 Memento

Whats not to love? The totally water-type-move that kills your guy to lower your pponents attack and defense by 1.

48 Splashy

Best move ever
