Best Water Pokemon


The Top Ten

1 Blastoise Blastoise Blastoise, known in Japan as Kamex, is a Water–type Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

When something is perfect... Its perfect. You have a giant Tortoise with mechanical water pressurized cannons located within its shell to cause serious damage while behind a castle wall defense. Train his both his defenses give him left overs. Get him with Iron Defense, Aqua Ring, Toxic and Rapid Spin (or Surf) and just see how far you get with him Pvp... The only reason they didn't make Blastoise a Steel Type in Gen 2 Was cause he'd just be too Overpowered and we all know it.

And when the opponent taunt you lol. How would he be over powered, if he has no great stats - Woyaojinkela

Its because of its cannons
Blastoise can use hydro cannon and hydro launcher that is very strong even in fire type Pokemons

Its RAPID SPIN can flew away nuisance HP decliner moves like LEECH SEED, WRAP, SPIKES and others. Then add its good body figure, stocky with two highly accurate cannons!

Watch out for Mega Venusaur, silly turtle!

2 Gyarados Gyarados Gyarados is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It evolves from one of the weakest Pokemon, Magikarp. But Gyarados has a high attack power (as of gen VII, mega Gyarados is ranking #19 for highest attack stat & would rank #10 if legendary Pokemon aren't included), and more.

Isn't it funny that the most weakest Pokemon evolves into this horrible and powerful monster

Gyrados kicks ass because it learns earthquake which can kill it double weakness against electric and it can learn ice type moves plus it has a super high attack stat

Gyarodos is awesome. We all say that to our favorite water types, don't we? But what we need is proof. Uh huh, listen to this, supreme court!

-Intimidate - Lowers down attack stat, and in some cases attack itself
-Moxie - Each time you beat someone up with Gyarados, free extra attack power
-Hidden ability - Hidden ability, well, its hidden, so I really can't say much, but usually when you say hidden ability, it usually pretty cool.
-Frighten - Reduces speed
-Tenacity - Contact causes Flinch

Attack? Do I need to say that Gyarados kicks butt when you already know that? It is renowned to be a mass havoc creator.
Is a flying type, so major advantage. Capable of using Fire Fang, Ice Fang and Thunder Fang.
Learns Thrash at beginning, and Bite too. Dragon Rage (Level 23) gives massive leverage against opponents, in which some opponents will not know, since Gyarados is not a Dragon type, so, you can say 'surprise! '
Bite and Crunch get ...more

My favorite water type

3 Swampert Swampert Swampert, known in Japan as Laglarge, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Swampert has the highest base stat total of all starter Pokemon (so far). It has a secondary ground type, which totally eliminates one of Water-type's weaknesses, the Ground type. It only has ONE weakness, Grass, although it is a 4 times damage increase. Swampert makes up for this by being able to learn Ice type attacks, such as Ice Beam, Ice Punch, Avalanche, and Blizzard. It has a rather low Speed stat, which benefits in learning Avalanche. I think Swampert should be at the top of this list, because it looks cool, has amazing stats, learns great moves, and has only one weakness. Pokémon Sapphire was my first Pokemon game I was truly interested in, and Mudkip was my first starter (named him Nimbus). He led me all the way to the end of Pokémon Sapphire, and beating that game ignited my interest in playing all of the Pokémon games.

What type can honestly beat Swampert? Any grass-type Pokemon will get man-handled by ice moves. Swampert can take care of any Pokemon it battles with the right sec of moves.

Swampert: my first Pokemon game was Pokemon Emerald so I was wondering which starter to choose. My brother said to choose Torchic, but I ditched that idea and chose Mudkip, the coolest looking out of all of them (sorry bro). Swampert is the powerhouse of all starters. Solid stats and fair defense makes it a nightmare to stand up against in a battle. My first Swampert new Earthquake, Surf, Toxic and Rest. Rest saved my butt in the Elite Four because I stocked up on a ton of Chesto Berries. When I battled with my friends, Toxic would always be the deciding factor. Pokemon that are immune to Toxic? I think EQ and Surf can take care of that. My first starter, and by far, my first tank in Pokemon

Why Blatoise is on the top?
Swampert and Gyarados are better than Blastoise

4 Empoleon Empoleon Empoleon is a large, navy blue, penguin-like Pokémon. It has a wide, yellow beak with three pointed horns that form a trident-shaped crest and small, blue eyes. Large horns are a symbol of leadership and strength for Empoleon. There is a blue marking resembling a crown over its eyes and a white, lacy more.

Obviously, Empoleon is the only water and steel type Pokemon, and knows many powerful moves. I bet it can beat any Pokemon in battles. Empoleon trainers like me can beat the champion any time!

I'm a trainer who specializes in water types and I've used every pokemon in the top 10 on this list and empoleon even being considered against these pokemon is an insult to empoleon. Empoleon is the greatest pokemon EVER. That means it is better than arceus mewtwo and all those other legendaries. It is water-steel type that has ELEVEN RESISTANCES AND ONLY THREE WEAKNESSES. And good stats that let it destroy anything that is foolish enough to stand in its way. Empoleon is the best pokemon ever.

Its power and strength. Its glamorous. Well surely on my opinion it is better than Blastoise but has a slight disadvantage over Fire Type.

5 Greninja Greninja Greninja is a Water/Dark type Pokemon introduced in Gen 6. It is the evolved form of Frogadier and the final evolve form of the water starter Froakie. Aside from the usual Torrent ability all Water starters have (Which raises the power of its Water moves), it also the the ability Protean, which changes more.

Greninja is way better than Blastoise. Mat block is this man's signiture move. It provides protection for your whole team (mostly in triple and double battles) which allows you to lay traps such as toxic spikes and stealth rock.
This also has the best ability in the game. Protean. Instant STAB, which means it gets an extra 50% power for attacking. It also confuses the opponent.
Last but not least is its speed. It is the fastest water type there is (I think...). This allows it to hit fast and hard.
Overall, if you add everything up, you will understand why it is the best. Blastoise may be the best Pokemon anime wise, but Greninja is the best competitively. It also has cool looks.

Greninja is SO BADASS! I mean, who the hell doesn't want a frog-gecko ninja dude with a TOUNGE SCARF? Plus, PROTEAN? STAB AFTER STAB AFTER STAB. Ice Beam? STAB! Anything else? STAB! Plus, it's so FAST! BEST WATER Pokemon EVER!

The most versatile Pokemon. Period. You can run a physical set or a special set without one being much worse than the other. Protean can make enemy attack less effective on top of instant stab. Throw a life orb or expert belt on him and greninja will sweep most teams if he's reserved for late game. He's too versatile, too fast, and too strong for him not to be #1.

This is amazing

6 Feraligatr Feraligatr

When I was 10 this was my fav pokemon, I had a lv 100, I used to see if I could beat the entire elite 4 with just this one pokemon. Ahhh good memories. - dragon13304

Totodile was my first Jhoto pokemon and though I'm a fire fan, I was converted to water after my baby (grown Feraligatr at level 70) was able to take on the entire Elite 4 + the Champion ALL BY HIMSELF. This was in the first Silver version, and after beating them once with a team I tested his strength...and he surprised me. Took them on like it was nothing! I only had to heal him once, and that was because I was paranoid.
He beat them several more times after that.
His moves were Bite, Slash, Surf and Ice Punch.
Today he is still my favorite pokemon, though I have too many candidates for a perfect team now lol

Feraligatr was my fist Johto starter AND is my fave Pokemon of all time! It really helped me out with Claire's stoopid dragon with ice fang. It DESERVES a mega evolution!

He is my second favorite water type but favorite water starter

7 Lapras Lapras

Lapras is a great pokemon:

Let's start with the ability.
- Water Absorb gives Lapras an immunity to Water.
- Hydration with kill status problem with a Rain Dance.
- Shell Armor means NO critical hits, what-so-ever.

Now, the attacks.

- Sing is a starter move, which gives you an upper hand on attacks.
- It learns TONS of Special moves, and Stab adds to this.
- Perish Song kills both pokemon, Lapras and the foe. Though, if you use it wisely, the ove is really beneficial.
- Sheer Cold is a One Hit KO move, which is good.

- Breeding Lapras with a Stunfish will teach the baby Lapras Fissure. Train it up high and it learns Sheer Cold. There's two One Hit KO moves.
- Lapras learns some Dragon moves as well.
- Lapras can also learn a Psychic move, along with Sleep Talk and/or Curse (Ghost Type).

- Lapras has the ability to learn Thunder and Thunderbolt. When battling a water leader and use a Lapras with Water ...more


Lapras is ' wicked! I know they're supposed to be peaceful, but if they need to fight they're super strong. They're also a great source of transportation! Go Lapras!

My favorite pokemon

8 Kyogre Kyogre

Killer special attack, plus drizzle, its STAB hydro pump smashes anything that doesn't resist it really hard. Add choice specs, and it's unmatched in the category of H20 Pokemon. Have no idea why it's languishing at 8th spot.

This Pokemon is a true force of nature. Even though I had Groudon and Rayquaza, I still trembled when my cousin brought this monster onto the field during our link battles. Groudon would be finished off with Water Spout or Hydro Pump, and Rayquaza would suffer death by Ice Beam! The rest of my arsenal was no match for this beast. STAB plus rain made its water attacks extremely powerful, and high special defense meant that even super effective grass and electric attacks barely had any effect. Truly the greatest of all water Pokemon.

Kyogre is the master of every Pokemon, UNBEATABLE in my opinion!

This list is total bs & nostalgia wanking. Kyogre can not only learn ice beam (grass coverage), but THUNDER with drizzle ability. It’s also a legendary & king of the sea. Fail list.

9 Kingdra Kingdra

Excellent dual STABs in Waterfall and Outrage coupled with Dragon Dance make Kingdra a top threat capable of sweeping unprepared teams. Kingdra's excellent defensive typing, along with its deceptively bulky stats, allow it to take strong special hits and Dragon Dance with a comfortable amount of HP remaining. Suicune and Starmie, two excellent checks to other Dragon-types, usually hope to bait Outrage, only to find themselves unable to stop Kingdra from setting up two or three Dragon Dances, then Rest and restore itself to full health thanks to Chesto Berry. Chesto Berry will not cure anything but sleep, so Pokemon relying on Will-O-Wisp or Toxic might think that they have beaten or crippled Kingdra, only to find they have given it an opportunity to gain more boosts before healing off status with Rest. With its boosted Waterfall, Kingdra is able to beat many Pokemon without locking itself into Outrage, and becomes very difficult to stop if the opponent no longer has a defensive wall ...more

Kingdra is cool mainly because he is water and dragon type. The fact that he is water type makes him much less weak against ice types - who are normally best against dragon types. This makes his only weakness dragon. However, because he is dragon type, he can fight off his own weakness, and further more, he is a water type which allows him to learn ice type moves - which are also good against dragon types.

Kingdra and Pilkia are only weak to dragon only and Kingdra and Pilkia are both Dragon type so Kingdra can beat all water pokemon apart from Pilkia but this can use in the Battle Subway while Pilkia can't. Kingdra might not have high defense or special defense but YYAAWWNN can't make pokemon sleepy zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz then Kingdra finish them off.

Kingdra sleeps on the sea floor where it is othervise devoid of life when the strom arrives the Pokémon
is said yo awaken and wander about in search of food

10 Milotic Milotic Milotic, known in Japan as Milokaross, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.


Milotic would be #1 if people were actually capable of catching it. It is extremely rare and it's first evolution sucks. However, when you evolve it (which is a difficult task whichever game you play) it is one of the most powerful Pokemon I have ever owned. I beat the whole elite four with Milotic in my Emerald game. She can learn ice beam which eliminates it's grass weakness and her special ability ups her defense in suffering (aka when they hit you with thunderbolt it doesn't even kill it.) one of the finest additions Pokemon ever made to the game in my opinion and should be #1 I hate blastoise.

It has a great ability called marvel scale, toxic, and scald and recover plus whatever else you want it also can a lot of hits so it will stall you out and let toxic widdle you down while switching between recover and scald plus leftovers giving it a little health back every turn (unless hit by knock off)

Beautiful. Strong. Fast. Uhhh, everything. Look at this beauty. Don't ya like it?

Milotic used Ice Beam! (which is beautiful)

I froze!

The Contenders

11 Vaporeon Vaporeon

Vaporeon is the best I use vaporeon as my bulky water type in my water dance team. Not only can vaporeon take multiple hits but also has few weaknesses and is not very affected by grass knot. In my opinion VAPOREON IS THE BOMB!

I admit, I chose Bulbasaur over Squirtle back in the days when I played the first three version of Fire, Water and Grass. But when I stumble an Eevee which can evolve into one of the three tier of evolutions.

I decided to change it into Vaporeon to make up for not choosing Blastoise and I'm glad to do so. Cause Mega-Blastoise, too much. New kick ass appearance COOL. Over-all base stat NOT COOL. I mean if everyone is gonna choose either Blastoise or Garyados for the Mega evolutions in a long run, other water Pokemon isn't so watery anymore and that's just sad.

But what am I talking about?! This is Vaporeon, a water cat like that jets with bubbles! I LIKE IT! :) With Hp stat start on 130 similar to Lapras which a true contender to Vaporeon itself. I can respect both of them cause of the reasonable movepool and it's fantastic yet cute cuddly designs. And let's not forget the anime.

The only reason I chose Vaporeon over Lapras is that Lapras unfortunately have 4 type ...more

I love vaporeon because there so cute and I like water type pokemons!
i wish I had a vaporeon.

12 Samurott Samurott

Samurott isn't that bad. You all don't realize it but he's the best water type starter. He's got spec attack almost like charizard and attack that makes charizard cry(please don't hate me charizard. I love you). Plus decent hp and mediocre defenses. He's worth using.

Really? Way down here? Samurott is the best water type starter. With it great spat and at it can be a mixed sweeper. Teaching it swords dance would further make him beast. Even Blastoise's defends wouldn't keep him down.

Samurott is what got me into Pokemon, and it's design is off the charts amazing, better then the turtle in the first region (I still like blastoise, don't worry) It has the body of a legendary, and it the best starter of them all. It's stats are great too, and Oshawott is so cute. No on can hate Samurott

He is the best water type by far. his razor shell is lit

13 Starmie Starmie

It's speed and sp. Attack are way higher than Blastoise. And Blastoise can only learn ice and water but starmie can learn water, ice, electric and psychic moves

Starmie is the best because Surf, Thunderbolt, Ice Beam and Psychic will just sweep those kanto elite 4. It's also fast not like other water types. Can also learn recover to heal itself. BEST WATER Pokemon EVER. My Favorite.

Why is this Pokemon in 8th place?
Starmie is one of the most versatile Pokemon in Pokemon world.
Teach it powerful special attacks like Surf, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt and Psychic. With its high special attack and speed, starmie can defeat all Pokemon. I caught a staryu in vermilion in leaf green and evolved it into a starmie, then it became my best Pokemon throughout the game.

It is a crap for real trainers but for you it is a great Pokemon. Are you crazy? - kormo

Awesome water type

14 Palkia Palkia

I give my vote to Palkia. I assume that Palkia should be Psychic/Dragon. You guys might know me. I did say my second sentence in the best steel type votes. I gave my vote to Dialga. You guys can find me on that page. I could not write much about Palkia then because it was about Steel types. I love Palkia by the way!

By looking to base stats, Palkia is actually MUCH stronger then Dialga, and seeing that Blastoise is No. 1? Okay, put a, let's say level 70 Palkia with a level 72 Blastoise, Palkia would win, because of hydro pump.

Palkia is the best than any other he should be coming first because he is a legendry Pokemon he is the best among the 5 legendry Pokemon

Palkia crushes blastoise with psycho cut

15 Suicune Suicune

It has high special defense and defense and just looks sweet

Suicune is an amazing pokemon. She is so fierce, her stats are amazing, and it looks amazing. It rocks its look, it is super rare, and I think it should be number 1.

suicune is great and cool its very strong for your team - lugia10158

16 Wailord Wailord

I like wailord because of its hp which is so much and also the attacks damaged which is pretty strong. It's also because the move. One of the move was water spout which is perfect to Wailord. It's also unique and the largest Pokemon. Wailord also can learn dive, bounce, and hydro pump without any TM or HM.


I forgot to point out he has the HIGHEST health base stat of all Water Pokemon.

Wailord is the best

I love him and just want you to know their is 1,00000000000000000000000000000000000 more I love him

Best Pokemon its awesome squirtle is one cute tough cookie

Squirtle is awesome and so cute he should be number 1!

It's cute powerful and the most popular revelation

Squirted is my favorite pokemon

18 Cloyster Cloyster

He looks like a vagina

Because of his high defense stat, his Skill link ability and the moves Shell Smash and Icicle spear, Cloyster can be quite a useful Pokemon.

Cloyster has super high defense. And to make things better, he looks like something that everyone knows he looks like (hint: rhymes with China)

Give him a choice band and ice shard and he will teach all pokemon that don't counter ice a lesson; don't mess with this guy.

19 Azumarill Azumarill

Azumarill. The second-best Physical Water-type (behind Swampert, obviously...) is now a Fairy. This makes him better. Play Rough and Waterfall, with Huge Power and Belly Drum, if you beat this with a Grass/Steel type, that would be very impressive. Brick Break takes those down, by the way! No Electric types can stand up to this, so this shouldn't be at 16.

I can't believe you people! I'm not trying to be mean, but have you guys ever used this beast?! In the remakes of omega ruby alpha sapphire, this guy is a destroyer! With the fairy typing he/she can wipe out the dragon type elite four member! BEAST!

Gen 6 really made this thing powerful. With fairy/water STAB along with HUGE POWER! Makes for a super OP aqua jetting beast.

My personal favorite non-legendary water pokemon! - JuliaRandomly

20 Piplup Piplup Piplup is a starter Pokémon in the Sinnoh region. It is the Water-type Starter. It resembles penguin. It was also the first penguin Pokémon to be created.

Piplup is the most cutest and most friendliest penguin you would know because I love penguins and other Pokemon but piplup you're the best

Penguins. Oh wait? You expected more? Well, just Empoleon's Water Steel can wreck Fire Types, and Steel can deal with Poison Types.

Piplup is my absolute favorite Pokemon! He is so adorable and fairly powerful for a baby evolution. I loved him so much that I actually went as him for Halloween in 1st grade. Piplup is awesome, and I am so sad that he is so late on this list. He should be #1!

He is awesome

21 Ludicolo Ludicolo

Giga Drain + Rain Dance + (any move) + (any move) + Rain Dish/Swift Swim = Perfect Speedy Drainer or Annoying Drainer But yea, it is a Pokemon who can knock out the weakness to Fire and Grass

Epic learns double team listen fool it should be first don't believe me talk to wallace

Double typing make it have a little advantage over other water types

Why just why is ludicolo so low it's a pokemon that hits two birds with one geodude (jokes aside) its water and grass it can learn devastating moves and its abillitie is awesome and ITS MEXICAN what else do you need of a water type

22 Kingler Kingler Kingler, known in Japan as Kingler, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Kingler has a really high attack, good defense, and a cool move set. The only reason he should not be in the top five is because of his health... He has really low health. If that were different he might be one of the top Pokemon in general.

He can snap a big boulder with his thingis at the end of his arm.

Why is this Pokemon down here? They are the best water attack Pokemon. Kingler + The best water move (Surf) is OP.

I want too eat kingler it is 130 lbs of crab!

29 Slowking Slowking

This guy made the whole 2nd movie a hit! He was hilarious, and for in-game, he's a good water/ psychic type. I personally prefer him over Slowbro and Staryu. I've used him since my first game as my water type (Crystal) because of his role in the second movie, and kept him ever since.

My first pokemon team ever had four water types, and Slowking was one of them. Mega evolution please.

If you can lay down a few calm mind's, he's untouchable

This Pokemon is a great tank. It is a surfer and gets STAB with that. You can teach it Ice Beam as a great counter to dragons. Psycic is also a great STAB attack. Then there's moves like Yawn, Nasty Plot, Calm Mind, Trick Room and even Scald that make a huge impact and compliment his stats. Slowking is a well rounded tanky Pokémon that has stats in the right places and can use its slowness to its advantage. Honestly in Pokémon Heartgold I destroyed Lance with my Slowking singlehandedly.

30 Whiscash Whiscash

My whiscash is very powerful and I always keep it in battle

Whiscash is underrated. He's pretty even in everything including attack & sp attack, so u can give him both moves. His best is his HP which can help him with hits as long as u don't put him up against his only weakness (grass). And finally he has a great move pool (rest, sleep talk, snore, zen headbutt, ice beam, aqua tail, earthquake, attract, toxic, etc). Plus he can get oblivious so he can't be imobobleized by love (& it seems be charmed and other stuff). I'd say he could use a mega to bump up his stats a bit but overall he can at least most of the time he can take out an opponent in 2 hits and receive little damage. Of course every1 lieks mudkip but he doesn't mean this has to b overlooked

31 Dewott Dewott

Dewott can learn water, ice, and fighting type moves

It's oshawott form evolver.. Is cool

32 Quagsire Quagsire

Quagsire may not be the most well known water type but he is one of the few water- ground, making him imune to electric moves. Also quagsire looks awesome! Why does game freak have to replace all of the cool old pokemon with crappy new ones ( quagsire replaced with gastrodon)?

My personal favorite pokemon. If you think Quagsire is bad you're using them wrong. I've swept Wifi battles with nothing but a Quagsire lead. Should be at least number 8. Besides! Look at that face.

Where is this guy on the list... Come on. He kicks ass.

Quagsire is only weak to grass an is imune to explosion or is healed when wet and stat change so it is epic

By far my favorite water type. If you've never used it in game, try it. Never disappoints.

It's stats are pretty underrated. He majorly helped me in my battles in Hoenn.

Amazing Ice attacks, hm surf & waterfall for water attacks and with ice body mixed with hail it recovers HP. To top it off it learns earthquake TM.

You understand how redundant waterfall is with surf. Unless you're running a mixed set, than juat run ice beam for the stab with waterfall. Still underwelming.

35 Dewgong Dewgong

I like Dewgong because it is fun to hear him say "Gong Gong Gong Gong" in the T.V. show. Also Pryce, gym leader of Mahogany Town, has one and it owns.

Total opposite of Cloyster its more offensive than defensive than Cloyster it has access to great attacks and it doesn't have to use a Water Stone to evolve

Dewgong is amazing! 33? Really?! Come on people, vote for this cutie! Its design is one of the few which is flipping adorable while remaining very simple (that's more than that can be asked of Sylveon, what with its flesh ribbons). Those eyes are so sweet too.

Even though cloyster still has great attack with shell smash, whild dewgong is all aound bulk. Your argument doesn't work if you take 2 minutes to actually look and compare their stats. by the way cloyster is the better water/ice type with shell smash and skill link.

Just an amazing pokemon to have. Couple Tail Glow's and everything is dead.

Decent hunter ain't it? Why don't we just take a Kabutops, capture Ghetsis, make him turn Kabutops into Genesect and be happy ever after?

Well rounded move pool and high defense makes this a pretty cool Pokemon. Mine boasts moves from a number of classes. Mega Drain, Water Pulse, Aerial Slash, and Slash.

38 Lugia Lugia Lugia, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

The whole reason that Lugia is no. 45 on this list is because he isn't even a Water type. It is a Psychic and Flying type It can learn Water type moves, though. And it sleeps on the bottom of the ocean, so I can kind of understand why people would assume that Lugia is a water type. It is a great legendary. I fought Red with solely a Lugia and sweeped his party off their feet. Mostly because Lugia has really high Defenses, so it was able to take hits from really strong moves, like Pikachu's Volt Tackle, and barely take any damage. On top of the fact it can learn Recover, all you have to do is give it leftovers and teach it Fly and you'd be set for life.

I like that and she learns some of water-type moves; however, she's not a water-type. She's a Psychic and a Flying-type.

Look just because he's the guardian of the sea doesn't mean that you should make him a water type like come on

Keldeo-R has 129 sp. Attack and 109 speed. So, it's fast and hits hard. It also has very powerful attacks in secret sword and surf. Hidden Power Ice or icy wind can stop grass types in their tracks. Finally, it can buff itself with calm mind. This alone at level 100 can beat the entire elite four of black and white 2 on its own.

Keldeo is awesome! He's so great you can only get him through a distribution event! Plus he has a cool move that makes him look like a unicorn!

He is a unicorn! He kicks ass

My all time favorite pokemon

I did not realize how strong and versatile this Pokemon was until a recent nostalgia replay of Crystal. That special defense with that kind of speed is a lot of fun.

The guy is super awesome

Great pokemon for taking down fairy types

My favourite water type pokemon - TENTACRUEL

42 Buizel Buizel

I have a strong bias for Buizel. I love everything about it. It's design, it's cry, it's nature, it's pokedex entries, and it's stats. Sure it's defense isn't great, but Buizel is true to itself. It isn't overpowered, it isn't overused, yet the Pokemon that are, are the ones that get love. Vote for Buizel, and give him some love. Why should Pikachu get special treatment, when there are much more special Pokemon out there, like Buizel? Buizel is a great Pokemon, with a great heart. Whens the last time Pikachu saved people from shipwrecks? Hmm.. OH WAIT. HE NEVER DID. Don't you know what people DO!? They pollute the ocean. And yet Buizel helps them anyways. Stupid Pikachu you dumbass. Hogging all the attention when there are way more helpful, caring, loyal, and honest Pokemon like Buizel. Please dudes. Vote for Buizel.

Buizel really kicks ass, don't you guys know? Seriously

Oh yeah. My favorite Pokemon ever. Always been part of my diamond and pearl team, I love Buizel, always naming it Swift. He exists to be #1 on this list!

The best

44 Arceus (Splash Plate) Arceus (Splash Plate) Arceus is a legendary Pokémon from the Pókemon series. He first appeared in the 18th Pokémon movie alongside other Legendary Pokémon.

How do people forget the high special attack and usage of the plates that only Arceus has?

I have a water Arceus but it's not so cool. - ecool553

Wow Arceus is in 39th place

45 Corphish Corphish

Seriously? He can learn Dragon Dance as an egg move, set up two of them and prepare to OHKO everything! Use Crabhammer, Aqua Jet (STAB) and Knock Off. Crawdaunt is awesome too, of course, as the evolved form he has higher stats, but keep him as a corphish, and no-one will really see him as a threat until you've Dragon Danced to victory!

I chose this for both Moon and ultra sun because it could easily beat all 4 kahunas, not to mention that in ultra sun, it can learn ENERGY BALL and TOXIC. Yep, ya heard that right. Energy ball and toxic, two moves its weak against. - IceFoxPlayz

Best starter for the game in my eyes, love this darn thing with its amazing coverage.

Best fairy type and good water type

Best. Period.

50 Luvdisc Luvdisc

Sorry everyone, but when it comes to the weakest water Pokemon, the only contestants are magikarp and luvdisc. It had only 1 purpose in the 4th generation, giving you an item. but in the next generation you can find those just lying around on the beach. yes luvdisc, you had a purpose in the 4th generation. but now it's gone. gone for good. you are useless. get used to it.

Not me, choose another strong water type to boost your team that's all

I HATE IT. Looks dumb and is dumb. Harrumph.

Doesn't everyone need a luvdisc?
