Top Ten Pokemon Water Moves

The Top Ten
1 Hydro Pump

This move is a classic its been in Pokemon since generation 1. Surf is not better and hydro cannon has more damage but you have to recharge. So, over all this move is better.

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).

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

Great first shot OHKO move, though highly recommended with a back up water move like scald.

2 Surf

Almost as good as EQ, but a water move. Remember: base power isn't everything. STAB, and the 100% accuracy makes surf often the most viable move for special attackers like Kingdra. Additionally, this move is widely available among both water and non-water pokemon.
Especially good in gen III, where your ally could not be hit in a double battle.
Overall, I prefer the consistent damage to the accuracy roulette of Hydro Pump or the recharge time on Hydro Cannon.

Surf not only helps you advance in the game, but using it correctly can be absolutely great. Get 2 pokemon with water absorb and the only thing that can take you down is an electric sweeper-not even grass types can get around this

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 is arguably the only hm move that doesn't completely ruin a m on. I t hits all opposing Pokemon and your ally but that doesn't matt er. I f you're smart youll only run a surfer with a telepathy/water absorb m on. I t may get a 25% nerf against multi targets but that's still about 70 bp. I t has a higher pp, accuracy and no recharge than hydro pump/cannon and it avaliable to far more pokem on. n o one runs a water starter in comp, you guys, and if they did why would they choose hydro cannon.

3 Hydro Cannon

It's much better than surf, because surf attacks everyone including your team mates and it's better than hydro pump because hydro cannon has more power and more accuracy. Who cares about the recharging?

Hydro Cannon is ultimate water type move the people should be shame to put it at #8. This have the power of 150 and the accuracy of 90%. Dang man what wrong with you people! Used your common sense!

I agree with the first guy that hydro cannon is waaayyy better than surf and all of the other moves.
1. Surf attacks EVERYONE on the feild when used, even your Pokemon!
2. Hydro cannon is just a way cooler name.

So much power I wiped out so many Pokemon with this move, even Grass types!

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

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.

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

6 Aqua Jet

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

7 Water Spout

Kyogre is the only Pokemon which has This attack.
The most aggressive Water type attack.

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.

8 Water Pulse
9 Scald

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.

10 Razor Shell

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

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

Latios can learn this move!

Why is rain dance #4?!

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

12 Aqua Tail

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

Aqua tail is great

13 Water Shuriken

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.

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

I really like this move and who ever put this on this list. I'll definitely put it on my greninja

14 Origin Pulse

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.

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.

15 Hyper Beam

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

16 Splash and Water Gun

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.

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

Splash is a normal type move...

Splash should be last

17 Hydro Vortex

A tornado of water, literally.

18 Aqua Ring
19 Splash

The best move.

20 Razor Leaf

How is this a water type move?!

21 Sparkling Aria
22 Bubble Beam
23 Brine

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

24 Steam Eruption

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!

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.
