    So, do you think Splash will ever gain an effect? I'm really mixed right now, but maybe....

    Never. That's what makes it so special.

    No, I think it will stay the way it is, a completly useless move.


    And sorry if my english is not that good, I'm from Brazil, so I can't speak english the way you guys do.

    No. It's meant to be completely useless, I'm sure that's how Splash was made to be.

    There would be no point of the move existing if it were to gain an effect.
    My answer is no.

    It technically has one in Mystery Dungeon (Hops any direction. If it hits another 'Mon, 5 damage to both)

    Outside that, since they haven't changed it in 16 years, they're not about to, nor do they need to.

    No. If it did then it wouldn't be splash, the signature move of the strongest pokemon ever, magikarp.

    No but I'm sure there will be a future move with no effect given to a similar Pokemon.

    I don't think it will and I don't want it to ever gain one.

    Part of its "charm," if you will, is its uselessness. Magikarp wouldn't be Magikarp if Splash did something!

    Hi, I'm Rose. I love music, alcohol, pointless Internet debates and being a snob about my choices in entertainment. I write a lot. You can read some of my writing at Autostraddle.com, the best site for LBTQ women on the Internet, where I am a staff writer. Or the funhouse that is my tumblr. I also write music sometimes, and post the better fruits of my labors on my SoundCloud.

    The fact that it's useless makes it unique. That's what makes it interesting and, moreover, special. Furthermore, if you gave the move an effect, it would probably make Magikarp a slightly more potent fighter, so you wouldn't feel the enormous sense of self-satisfaction when it evolves into Gyarados.

    Nope. If so, that's like giving the Negative Man from MOTHER 3 an attack.

    No.
    But one thing always bothered me... Normal type? Water would make more sense and it does no damage so the type really makes no difference. The fact that it's Normal makes it sound like the attack is more about the floundering fish itself than the water that it is splashing around in.

    The japanese name would be better translated as something like "hop" or "flop". It just got translated like that because Magikarp, a water type, was the only Pokemon with it at the time.

    I see, that makes sense.

    It's already got an effect


    But nah... GF won't. Being entirely useless is its charm.
