Surf is a Water-type special move that deals damage. It is HM03 and can be bought in Greenpine City. It's functionality is replaced by the Surfboard, which is obtained in Waytide City.
- Surf can hit a Pokémon during the semi-invulnerable turn of Dive, and if it does, it will have its power doubled for that Pokémon.
- Surf can be used outside of battle to travel over bodies of water.
Outside of battle
Surf is considered a HM move even if it is learned by levelup or the newly caught Pokémon already knows it. It can only be forgotten by the move deleter in Goldune City.
It can also be used for travelling on water, even if the player does not have the Surfboard.
| The user attacks everything around it by swamping its surroundings with a giant wave.
