Psyduck (Japanese: コダック Kodakku) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.


Psyduck is a medium sized yellow duck Pokémon. Only the feet and the bill are tan. The other body parts are all yellow. Psyduck has three black hairs on top of its head, and its hands are on its head due to its constant headache.

Special abilities

Psyduck can have either the ability Damp or Cloud Nine. Damp is an ability that will prevent the opponent from self destructing, while Cloud Nine prevents the effects of weather. It suffers from a constant headache. From time to time, it's headache causes it psychic abilities to increase tenfold.


Psyduck evolves into Golduck at level 33.

Psyduck's name is a combination of the words psychic and duck. Its Japanese name can be taken to mean small duck. Psyduck's design is possibly based along the lines of a duck or a platypus.


  • Despite having psychic powers, and its name having psychic a part of it, Psyduck isn't partially Psychic-type.
  • If Psyduck's headache becomes severe, it supposedly can use attacks that are stronger than usual. As seen in Episode-32 The ninja-poké showdown.
