In Pokemon, there are a lot of different moves used by different Pokémon. However, there are certain moves we don't normally see being used, heard about, or used in a meaningful manner. In this type of discussion, we shall discuss the ins-and-outs of the move of the topic, and there will be some base questions that will help you. Every Saturday, a different move will be discussed.
This week, the move we will be focusing on is Soak, a move introduced in Generation 5 that transform the target into a Water-type by shooting a torrent of water at it, but it won't affect anything with a Water immunity. This move is mainly available on Water-types, which is naturally because this move is a Water-type. Here are the questions you could answer about this move:
- How does certain Pokémon (who knows it) use this move?
- What kind of purpose would this move have for them (in the Pokémon World)?
- How could this move be used to aid a profession in the Pokémon World?
- Realistically, would there be any advantage or disadvantage associated with using this move? If yes, what kind of advantage/disadvantage would they have when they use it?
- Could this move realistically be used by any Pokémon who doesn't learn it normally? If yes, please explain your choices.
- How would this move be used in competitive battling, realistically and in video game terms?
Here are the current learners of this move:
- Psyduck & Golduck
- Goldeen & Seaking
- Azurill, Marill & Azumarill (Breeding through Azurill)
- Remoraid & Octillery
- Wailmer & Wailord (Breeding)
- Finneon & Lumineon
Thanks for reading, and happy discussing!
