Effects

Waterfall deals damage and has a 20% chance of causing the target to flinch (if the target has not yet moved). Pokémon with the ability Inner Focus or those behind a Substitute cannot be made to flinch.

Changes

In Generations 1-3, Waterfall has no secondary effect.

Outside of battle:

Allows a surfing Pokémon to ascend a waterfall. In Diamond, Pearl & Platinum, Waterfall is required to descend waterfalls, but in other games it is not.
