Simipour made me have a burn!

1 vote

When a Simipour in B/W used scald on me, my Serperior got burned!! Scald is a Water move, so I don't really understand how it can burn you! Can anyone explain why they know/think this happens???

Scald has a 30% chance of Burning the opponent. Scald's Japanese name is Boiling Water, making more sense of why it has a chance to Burn.

The word scald literally means: to burn with water. and the description for the move scald is: The user shoots boiling hot water at its target. It may also leave the target with a burn, and scald has a 30% chance to burn the target.
