    That could work.

    I'd still say they'll never do anything for Splash since they need at least one completely useless move. But what I've always thought would be cool is, like what @Dr.J; said, it's an ultimate team sweeper that will guaranty 1 Hit OK with 100% accuracy, but it only has like 1 in 8192 chance of it working.
    Try my version of 'Which Pokemon Are You?' quiz for Gates to Infinity. (It is pretty long btw)

    Since the game doesn't have one already... (I've used the old questions and the newest Pokemon)

    No, its always been treated as a joke. Especially since they've actually nerfed it, it can't be used when high gravity is in effect

    That's not a nerf, because that would result in Magikarp using Struggle instead. And Struggle damages both the opponent and the user - just like Splash in Mystery Dungeon.

    No. Why ruin the sheer novelty of it?

    Yeah, splash shouldn't have an effect. Although, if a Wailord were to use splash in the ocean I don't think we'd be saying "nothing happened."

    No because Game Freak thinks it's hilarious.

    Yeah. Not having an effect is part of the fun of having a Magikarp.

    I think that splash should cause like a new status ailment. It should have the same effect as Infatuation. But I think it should have happened in Gen I

    I don't think that it should get an effect. Frankly, its effect is that it does nothing. That's what makes splash unique, it's the only move that does absolutely nothing! It's supposed to be a funny gimmick.

    No, that would make this specific battle meaningless. (see the pic) Splash has its unique charm due to its uselessness.

    Also, as someone said, its Japanese name is はねる (haneru), which can be translated as both "splash" and "hop". However, NoA named it Splash instead of Hop (or Flop, if they wanted a name specific for the then-exclusive case of Magikarp) because Nob Ogasawara's boss in the team was stubborn and didn't let him name the move Hop or Flop. A similar situation happened to バリヤード (Barrierd), who got his English name as Mr. Mime because someone decided to ignore Nob Ogasawara's notice that Pokémon games could have genders for Pokémon in the future and that the name wouldn't make sense in that case. And yeah, it happened. I bet the guy who laughed at Nob for saying that got screwed afterwards when they had to localize Gold/Silver.

    Without a useless Splash, there would be no Magikarp as we know it.

    No, that would never happen. It's supposed to be useless (I think that's partly so that evolving Magikarp will be more difficult). If it would happen I couldn't see it having any more than 20 in base power (comparing it to Bubble).

    It won't. It's meant to be as hilariously worthless as Magikarp. Besides, it already has an effect: it wastes the user's turn.
