Pokemon Sun And Moon Z-Crystals Give “Splash” Move A Purpose

Since the inception of the Pokemon games, there is one Pokemon attack that always has been a useless one. The attack is called “Splash” and is well known among the Pokemon fans for being a useless move. But all of this will be changing in Pokemon Sun And Moon.

In previous Pokemon games, Splash attack was followed by a phrase “nothing happened” and it had no purpose in the battle. But with the introduction of the Z-moves to Pokemon Sun And Moon “Splash” could actually prove useful to trainers.

Twitter user Mike S. who is also a competitive Pokemon champion posted a video showcasing how the Z-status works and to demonstrate it he chose “Splash” move.

For those who don’t know, by using a Z-Crystal of the appropriate type players can boost Pokemon moves of the same type. In the video, the trainer uses the ‘Normalium Z’ crystal to boost the “Splash” move.

Interestingly, Z-Splash move still does not do any damage but it boosts the user’s attack three times.
