Pokédex entries



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


  • 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.
  • Golduck's English and Japanese names are the same.
