How do water Pokémon battle on land?

We’ve all been there. We’re walking through a cave, deep and dark, when a trainer challenges us to a battle. The screen flashes, we’re transported to a dry battle scene and he throws out – a Goldeen? This Goldeen then proceeds to kick our rock-type Pokémon’s ass as it flops around on a dry circle just beneath its fins. Where does the Goldeen get all that water? Perhaps it stores some inside, but after a while, that source must be exhausted. And, flipping this question around, how do rock-type Pokémon fight on water? Wouldn’t they sink?
