I don't have a problem with it, however I have to admit it's weird explaining to someone why it has a higher burn rate than, say, most Fire moves.

Granted, steam can really frickin' burn. But so does, you know, a literal jet of fire hitting you.

OW: That's not my problem. Sucks for whoever I murder, though.

That's a good point... although, maybe it's because the burning water stays on you, whereas the fire just sorta hits you and its concussive force blows the fire out.

^It also unfreezes you, and not your enemy.

Maybe the fire emitted by pokémon is similar to Cyclops' eye blast...

This makes it great for those tanky water types. A STAB water move that has a chance of making my opponent's attack suck (and deal continuous damage to them)? Hell yeah!

Well, that's exactly the point. It also unfreezes you and has a higher burn rate than a lot of fire moves (like what people before have said)
