Is it stupid to take creatine for the water weight gain?

I am trying to gain weight. I am 6ft 152 lbs. I have been taking pump fuel (like no xplode) and taking 3 grams after my workout. I haven't done a load phase though. I am thinking about loading creatine just for the extra water weight. I did this in the past and I think I got to 160 and looked a lot better. hey anything helps me because I am really skinny and 8% body fat.

What is the best creatine out their?
How long will the water weight last?
Is this a bad idea?

    One of the reasons I'm continuing with creatine, is apart from the fact I noticed extra energy and ability to work out harder/longer, the boost in muscle size was not unappreciated.

    1. I opted for the cheap option and am taking creatine in tablet format (apparantly not as easily absorbed as the powder form). The monohydrate version seems to be the most widely accepted.

    2. As long as you keep taking it

    3. Nope, all the research indicates it is perfectly safe, but definitely read the article James pointed out.
