12 Gen 9 Water Types In Scarlet & Violet

Some players may find the Water-types included in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet to be interesting and beneficial, as they are from Generation 9...

A lot of useful Water-type Pokemon from Gen 9 have been added to Scarlet and Violet, which players may find interesting.

In Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, some new pokemon have been added that aren’t in other games. Even though there are some performance problems with the game, players like the new species. Fans of water-type Pokemon will enjoy a lot of new Pokemon this time around. The cute and sassy Quaxly is a great starting Pokemon.

There are many great Water Pokemon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, such as mechanical sharks, dolphins that can change forms, and Diglett’s watery cousin. Some of these Pokemon have strong stats and powers.

Wiglett

Water-Type

Pokedex entry for Wiglett

It’s pretty simple to take a shot at Wiglett for being water-Diglett. However, Wiglett has a certain charm, and even though it looks a lot like Diglett, it has very different skills.

Wiglett isn’t the best Water Pokemon on this list, but it’s still useful. Any foes that touch it will have their Speed slowed down by Gooey. If an enemy hits Wiglett with a Bug, Dark, or Ghost-type move, it will speed up thanks to Rattled. From level 26, Wiglett changes into Wugtrio (sound familiar?). It can be hard to catch a Wiglett because if you go straight at it, it will hide by digging into the ground. You should sneak up on it from behind, aim with ZL, and then use ZR to start a fight.

Wiglett’s Base Stats:

HP:10
Attack:55
Defense:25
Sp. Atk:35
Sp. Def:25
Speed:95
Total:245

Finizen

Water-Type

Finizen's Pokedex entry Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

Finizen is a dolphin Pokemon that might be one of the cutest new Pokemon for Gen 9. They don’t always move alone, so players will find groups of them along any Paldea coastline. Water Veil is a skill of Finizen that keeps it from getting burned by fire attacks.

Finizen is a great tool for any player’s team. In later levels, it has some cool moves, like Acrobatics, which does a lot of damage if the user isn’t holding anything, and the classic Hydro Pump. Finizen changes into Palafin when the player joins a Union Circle. It’s the only Pokemon that can evolve in the game.

Finizen’s Base Stats:

HP:70
Attack:45
Defense:40
Sp. Atk:45
Sp. Def:40
Speed:75
Total:315

Wugtrio

Water-Type

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Wiglett evolves into Wugtrio

You can’t have Wiglett without Wugtrio. In Gen 9, Wugtrio isn’t the best Water Pokemon because its stats aren’t very good, so players will choose it based on how it looks. It does, however, go very fast—120 miles per hour—which is interesting.

Wugtrio knows how to do the move Triple Dive. Triple Dive is a water-type move that hits the target three times. As Wugtrio levels up, this move could become very strong, which might make up for his average stats.

Wugtrio Base Stats:

HP:35
Attack:100
Defense:50
Sp. Atk:50
Sp. Def:70
Speed:120
Total:425

Veluza

Water/Psychic-Type

The pokedex cover image for Veluza in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

Veluza is a Pokemon that looks like a real shark. One could say it’s kind of ugly. It’s also kind of cool. Forget about how it looks for a moment; it’s a pretty good addition to the Pokedex. The Pokemon’s stats are above average. It’s an aggressive Pokemon with strong moves like Aqua Cutter, Liquidation, and Fillet Away.

Veluza is a Pokemon with only one stage, but it has two types: water and psychic. Anyone in Paldea can find it near the water, and it’s pretty easy to catch. The players’ chances of winning can go up if they use a net ball.

Veluza’s Base Stats:

HP:90
Attack:102
Defense:73
Sp. Atk:78
Sp. Def:65
Speed:70
Total:478

Quaxly

Water-Type

Meeting Quaxly in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

How could anyone not notice Quaxly? Quaxly is one of the three starting Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. It is a cute little duck with a quiff. Really great stuff. Its numbers are pretty normal for a starter Pokemon, but later on, it learns some great moves like Aqua Cutter and Acrobatics.

One thing that people don’t agree on is Quaxly’s evolutions, Quaxwell and Quaquaval. Early in the game, though, Quaquaval is a good Pokemon to lead a group, and the Quaxly line is probably one of the strangest starting Pokemon players have had in a while.

Quaxly’s Base Stats:

HP:55
Attack:65
Defense:45
Sp. Atk:50
Sp. Def:45
Speed:50
Total:310

Palafin

Water-Type

pokemon-scarlet-and-violet-palafin-dex-picture

Finizen grows into Palafin, but it’s not easy: to evolve Palafin, players must join a Union Circle. This is the only thing that needs to be done, and Palafin must be at least level 38.

Finizen is a great step up. It looks a lot like Finizen when it’s in its normal form, but with a small red heart added. If the player changes Palafin, though, it will change into Hero Form and stay that way for the rest of the fight. The Hero Form is pretty scary. It has great stats, and Palafin’s attack stat is especially high, which makes it a great defender.

Palafin’s Base Stats (Zero Form/Hero Form):

HP:100/100
Attack:70/160
Defense:72/97
Sp. Atk:53/106
Sp. Def:62/87
Speed:100/100
Total:457/650

Quaquaval

Water/Fighting-Type

Quaquaval in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

Quaquaval is the last development of Quaxly. This Pokemon looks great, and its movements are really beautiful. That being said, it’s also a strong Pokemon with great numbers; Attack is its best stat. As the game goes on, this makes it a great choice to lead a Pokemon team.

Along with some cool moves, Quaquaval also has the very fitting Feather Dance. This is a great move for the quaquaval because it looks like a circus dancer. This move is very helpful because it severely lowers the enemy’s Attack number.

Quaquaval’s Base Stats:

HP:82
Attack:120
Defense:80
Sp. Atk:85
Sp. Def:75
Speed:85
Total:530

Dondozo

Water-Type

Dondozo in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

This is a Water Pokemon with only one stage. The species isn’t the most beautiful, but it’s big! It’s a great defensive Pokemon because it has a high HP stat but a low Speed stat. Also known as Tatsugiri, Dondozo gets along great with it. Order Up, Dondozo’s signature move, and Commander, Tatsugiri’s signature move, work well together.

You can improve one of your stats when Dondozo holds Tatsugiri in its mouth. This is because of the way Tatsugiri looks. On the other hand, Tatsugiri won’t be able to switch out, but all of its stats will be raised. This is a good deal, and it’s fun to use this pair in battle.

Dondozo’s Base Stats:

HP:150
Attack:100
Defense:115
Sp. Atk:65
Sp. Def:65
Speed:35
Total:530

Tatsugiri

Dragon/Water-Type

Tatugiri Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Pokedex Entry

This Sushi Pokemon might not look as strong as it is; the little Water Dragon is a very strong Pokemon in the game, with an amazing 120 Sp. Atk.

This dish comes in three different styles: curly (orange), saggy (red), and stretchy (yellow). The forms are only for looks, so the gamer can choose which one they like best. Partnering Tatsugiri with Dondozo is a great idea because their skills work well together. This makes them perfect for the double fights in Blueberry Academy that come with the Indigo Disc DLC.

Tatsugiri’s Base Stats:

HP:68
Attack:50
Defense:60
Sp. Atk:120
Sp. Def:95
Speed:82
Total:475

Iron Bundle

Ice/Water-Type

Iron Bundle Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Pokedex Entry

Fans of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet were introduced to a new type of Pokemon called Paradox Pokemon. These monsters are Ancient Pokemon in Scarlet and Future Pokemon in Violet. The second is Iron Bundle, a form of Delibird from a very long time ago.

Iron Bundle is much better than Delibird because, to everyone’s surprise, it has one of the fastest speed stats in Spacebar Clicker (136). Putting this together with 124 Sp. And at least it can wipe out opponents with a STAB Hydro Pump or Blizzard. This can’t be stopped because it will probably be faster than any Pokemon.

Iron Bundle’s Base Stats:

HP:56
Attack:80
Defense:114
Sp. Atk:124
Sp. Def:60
Speed:136
Total:570

Walking Wake

Water/Dragon-Type

Walking Wake Pokemon Scarlet

Walking Wake is an old type of Suicune that gets the Dragon type, which makes its moves stronger. It was released as part of the Teal Mask DLC. Even though Walking Wake is linked to Suicune, it is not a Legendary Pokemon. It is only a Paradox Pokemon. On the other hand, it has more stats.

Walking Wake is a great fighter. It can use Sunny Day and Flamethrower, but it can also use Hone Claws to improve its stats and then Dragon Pulse or Hydro Pump to hit hard.

Walking Wake’s Base Stats:

HP:99
Attack:83
Defense:91
Sp. Atk:125
Sp. Def:83
Speed:109
Total:590

Ogrepon (Wellspring Mask)

Grass/Water-Type

Ogrepon Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Teal Mask DLC

Ogrepon is one of a kind because it can change its typing based on the mask it is wearing. The Wellspring Mask turns it into a Water-type. It changes into a pure Water type when it is Terastallized, and in this state, it shows a mask instead of the normal icon.

The mask also changes the type of its signature move, Ivy Cudgel, so players won’t have to switch moves to get a STAB move edge. Since it’s a Legendary Pokemon, it’s very strong and can hit hard with great speed and attack.

Ogrepon’s Base Stats:

HP:80
Attack:120
Defense:84
Sp. Atk:60
Sp. Def:96
Speed:110
Total:550
