Trivia

  • While its English name suggests an association with water, its Japanese name, はねる haneru, can mean both splash and hop, but usually the latter. This explains why the move can be learned by Pokémon such as Spoink and Hoppip—species who have no association with water but are known for hopping or jumping—and why it is disabled by Gravity. Its somewhat misleading English name is likely due to its initial exclusivity to Magikarp.
  • In the anime, Splash is the most common result of Metronome.
  • Splash and the event-exclusive moves Celebrate and Hold Hands are the only moves in the core series Pokémon games that have no effect whatsoever.
  • Splash is the only obtainable move in Pokémon GO to have a different type than in the core series games.
