Water Pledge is a damage-dealing Water-type move.
Water Pledge inflicts regular damage, with double damage and an additional effect when combined with Fire Pledge or Grass Pledge in double battles. The combined move is used by the Pokémon that moved second.
If it and Fire Pledge are used in the same turn, it will inflict damage at double the power, then create a rainbow on the user's side of the field for four turns. The rainbow doubles the probability of secondary effects taking place on that side of the field; this effect does not stack with Serene Grace.
If it and Grass Pledge are used in the same turn, it will come out as Grass Pledge, inflict damage at double the power, then create a swamp on the side of the field of the target of the combined move for four turns. This swamp halves the Speed of all Pokémon on that side of the field.
If a Pokémon uses one Pledge move and a partner has selected another Pledge move, but none of its partners are able to use their selected Pledge move that turn (e.g. paralysis, Sky Drop, etc.), no move will be executed.
Similar to Fire Pledge and Grass Pledge, Water Pledge is unaffected by a held Water Gem (and will not consume it).
