Trivia

  • Brine's effect of becoming stronger when the opponent is low on HP might be inspired by the idiom rubbing salt into the wound, meaning to make a bad situation even worse.
  • Brine is the only Water-type Clever move.
  • Brine is the only Water-type move introduced in Generation IV that doesn't have the word "aqua" in its name.
