Wishiwashi (ヨワシ Yowashi) is a water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VII.

Biology

Physiology

Wishiwashi is a small blue-and-white fish Pokemon. It has bright blue markings on its flanks, white teardrop-shaped patterns on its sides and its large eyes have blue puddle-shaped pupils inside.

In its School Form, Wishiwashi combines with numerous others to create a school shaped like a much larger fish. The individual fish in the school are much less detailed, and are of varying shades of blue with glowing eyes.

Behavior

Small and weak on its own, Wishiwashi is targeted by many predators that see it as an easy meal. In order to defend itself, large numbers of Wishiwashi come together into their massive and terrifying School Form, and their combined power surpasses that of even Gyarados. Alolan sea folk fear Wishiwashi, speaking of it as the "demon of the sea". However, even in large schools Wishiwashi still falls prey to Wailord.

When it’s in trouble, its eyes moisten and begin to shine. The shining light attracts its comrades, and they stand together against their enemies.
Moon
It’s awfully weak and notably tasty, so everyone is always out to get it. As it happens, anyone trying to bully it receives a painful lesson.

Trivia

  • When its health drops below 20%, Wishiwashi reverts back to its Solo form.
  • Wishiwashi is similar to Magikarp in that it is a small, weak fish Pokemon that turns into a more powerful form dreaded and feared by many. However, in Wishiwashi's case, its larger form is merely due to schooling and not an actual evolution.
  • Wishiwashi Solo Form has the worst Base Stat Total and Base Stat Average with its Total being 175 and its Average being 29.17.

Origin

Wishiwashi is based on a sardine or other small schooling fish. Its School Form is a reference to how schools of fish band together in large numbers to deter predators or look bigger.

Etymology

Wishiwashi is a play of the term Wishy Washy meaning to be weak when alone. It may also incorporate "fishy" and "iwashi" (Japanese for sardine).
