Waterfall (Japanese: たきのぼり Waterfall Climb) is a Water-type HM (Hidden Machine) move, introduced in Generation I (though it was not an HM until Generation II). You must use Waterfall in Hoenn, Sinnoh, and Kalos to get to or through those regions' Victory Roads. You can use Waterfall outside of battle once you have beaten the eighth Gym Leader in their respective region (excluding Unova). It has a 20% chance to cause the opponent to flinch.
