Pokemon of water

Some Water-type Pokémon in their natural habitat.

The Water type (みずタイプ Mizu taipu in Japanese) is one of the eighteen Pokémon elemental types.

It is said that this type is pure since its Pokémon can adapt to any situation and weather, since water can adapt itself in several forms. For example, water adapts the form of a glass if poured into one, while if poured in a cube it adopts the form of the cube. That's why Water-type Pokémon feel happy anywhere, as long as there's water. Most Pokémon of this type also have another type, representing the biodiversity of marine creatures.

Most Water-type Pokémon are based on creatures that live on water, or use water for their disposition. Their attacks involve use of water, if not, attacks that can be done only by marine creatures (like Clamp, Crabhammer and Razor Shell).

Famous Water-type Pokémon Trainers include Misty, the second Kanto Gym Leader; Wallace, the first eighth Hoenn Gym Leader-turned-Champion and his replacement Juan; Crasher Wake, the fourth Gym Leader of Sinnoh; Cress, one of Striaton City's three Gym Leaders in Unova; Marlon, the eighth Gym Leader of Humilau City in Unova; and Siebold, one of the Kalos Elite Four.

Relations with other types

  • They're strong against the Fire type because water puts fire out.
  • They're strong against the Ground type because ground becomes weak when it is soaked.
  • They're strong against the Rock type because water erodes rocks.
  • They're weak against the Electric type because water is a good conductor of electricity.
  • They're weak against the Grass type because plants absorb water for their own benefit.
  • They resist the Ice type because ice melts when it's in touch with a liquid. Another reason could be that ice is just frozen water.
  • They resist the Steel type because water oxidizes most metals.
  • The Dragon type resists them because in ancient legends, dragons were unaffected by the principal forces of nature (plants, water, fire and electricity).
