Oshawott (Japanese: ミジュマル Mijumaru) is the Water-type Starter Pokémon of the Unova region. Its classification is the Sea Otter Pokémon. It has the ability Torrent, like all of the previous Water-type starters.

Oshawott is a mammalian sea-otter-like Pokémon. It has fur covering it entire body, with white fur on its face and arms, light blue fur on its torso and it has a dark blue tail, feet and ears. It also has an odd scallop attached to its stomach called a "scalchop," which is made of keratin (the same substance as human hair and fingernails) and can be removed from the body for specific attacks, such as Razor Shell, and can be used to deflect attacks. Ash's Oshawott is known to be a clown-like Pokemon.

Oshawott's first appearance in BW001 was as one of starter Pokémon that Trip could choose. However, Trip chose Snivy as his starter instead. When Trip's Snivy battled Ash's Pikachu, Oshawott snuck out of Professor Juniper's lab to watch. Oshawott followed Ash until Ash finally noticed him, whereupon Ash caught Oshawott in BW003, and added him to his team.He constantly falls in love with other Pokémon.

In Japanese he only says mijuma or miju. Misato Fukuen lends his voice. In English, he only says oshawott, osha, or his other syllables parts of his name, in his duck-toned voice; he is voiced by Lisa Ortiz. Oshawott has always kept his scalchop protected, but uses it only for battle purposes or assistance.


Oshawott evolves into Dewott at level 17. Dewott evolves into Samurott, the final form, at level 36.

Name Origin

  • Oshawott's name could be a combination of the word ocean for "Osha", as well as water and otter for the end of its name, "wott".
  • Another possibility for Oshawott's name origin is from the words Otter and Wash. By swapping the consonant sounds within each word to get Osher and Watt, then altering the spelling while keeping the same sounds gives Oshawott.
  • Oshawott's name may also be derived from the city "Oshawa" in Ontario, Canada and "otter".
  • Its Japanese name may be derived from 水 mizu, water or 未熟 mijuku, naive and 丸 maru


  • Oshawott is the fourth mammalian starter, the others being Cyndaquil, Chimchar, and Tepig.
    • Oshawott is also the first Water-type Starter Pokémon to be based on a mammal as well as the first mammalian starter not to be of the Fire-type.
  • Oshawott is the only Unova starter to have a different species than its direct evolution: Oshawott being the Sea Otter Pokémon, and Dewott being the Discipline Pokémon.
