AnimeEdit

Golduck in the Anime

In Bye Bye Psyduck, Misty saw a Golduck and she thought her Psyduck evolved, but it was just a wild Golduck that had similar behaviors to Brock. In The Perfect Match, Trinity used a Golduck to battle Misty in the Whirl Cup.

MangaEdit

In the Pokémon Adventures manga, Blue owns a Golduck and uses it to Surf and battle.

TriviaEdit

  • Despite its name, Golduck is blue instead of gold.
    • It is rumoured that Psyduck and Golduck had their names mixed up, due to the fact that Psyduck has a golden texture and Golduck looks more like a Psychic Pokémon.
  • Despite possessing Telekinesis and Psychic powers, Golduck is not part Psychic-type.
  • Despite being able to use Psychic powers, Golduck and its pre-evolution, Psyduck, could not learn Psychic until Generation IV, despite being a TM, too.

OriginsEdit

Golduck appears to be based off a duck or platypus whilst its name comes from gold and duck.
