Soak (Japanese: みずびたし Waterlog) is a non-damaging Water-type move introduced in Generation V.
Soak changes the target's type to pure Water; the effect lasts as long as the target is in battle, however changing form or transforming will also remove the effect.
Soak does not affect Pokémon with the Ability Multitype. Soak fails if used on a substitute.
If used on a pure Water-type Pokémon (naturally or via Soak), Soak will act successfully and state, "The <Pokémon> transformed into the Water type."
Generation VI onward
If used on a pure Water-type Pokémon, Soak's animation will still play, but the game will now state that the move has failed.
Soak can be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, with the user gaining an extra three appeal points if the move Rain Dance was used in the prior turn.
If powered up by a Waterium Z into Z-Soak, the user's Special Attack stat raises one stage.
| The user shoots a torrent of water at the target and changes the target's type to Water.
