While it states 0 atk it still inflicts some damage, maybe is something like 0.1 base power

I can confirm as well that it does do damage. It wasn't a lot, but over 6 133cp-139cp Magikarp, I did about 20hp damage to a 1630cp Flareon, and the HP went down using Splash in small increments. My guess is that it was doing somewhere on the order of 1hp damage each time because I was getting about 3-4 attacks in before each Magikarp would faint. This was after the 0.31.0 update, but before the update I know it did damage as well from Magikarp vs Magikarp gym battles.

Splash is a Normal Type move.

splash always will inflict 1 damage minimum in GO because of the damage formula always adding 1.

Floor(½ * Power * Atk/Def * STAB * Effective)+1

in addition to that, splash has a high energy gain per use.
the same applies to transform, ditto VS ditto will inflict 1 damage at each other because of being unable to transform into itself.

but splash being water type over normal shows how ill-versed our friends at niantic are in the ways of pokemon.
hanke even said that the extent of his knowledge on the franchise was from his kids. that, and some legacy moves exist on pokemon that were never able to learn them in the main games. they seem to be getting better.
