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.

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

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!

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

4 Crabhammer
5 Rain Dance

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

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

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

7 Water Spout

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

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

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

The Contenders
11 Waterfall

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

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.

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

14 Hyper Beam

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

15 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.

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.

17 Hydro Vortex
18 Aqua Ring

Really powerful and quite accurate. Has a big range and is quite quick to use.

19 Splash
20 Razor Leaf
21 Sparkling Aria
22 Bubble Beam
23 Double-Edge
24 Brine

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

25 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
