Scald (Japanese: ねっとう Boiling Water) is a damage-dealing Water-type move introduced in Generation V. It has been TM55 since Generation V.

Effect

Generation V

Scald inflicts damage and has a 30% chance of causing a burn. Upon execution, Scald will thaw the user if frozen, regardless of the success of the move. This means that Scald thaws the user even if the move misses or is rendered useless by Detect, Protect, Storm Drain, or Water Absorb.

Generation VI

Scald now thaws a frozen target if it hits and deals damage.

Description
