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.

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.

Scald's not that great IMO. All that's special about it is that it burnz.

^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)
