It’s the final form of Squirtle. Blastoise can Mega Evolve into Mega Blastoise using Blastoisinite. From its appearance, Blastoise has water spouts that extend from its turtle shell, and they have very good accuracy. Along that, those water spouts shoot water bullets that can strike from a distance over 160 feet. Though its stats are not very promising, it still has a not too shabby Defense and Special Defense. Finally, it has two abilities, that being Torrent and Rain Dish.


 Blastoise is not suitable for offense for its huge bulk that slows it down and its rather low HP. Like any other water type, it has a weakness against Electric and Grass types. This Pokémon best used as an armor

7. Swampert


From Generation 3, Swampert is a Water, Ground type Pokémon, known as the Mud Fish Pokémon. Swampert evolves from Marshtomp starting at level 36. It has another form called Mudkip. It can also Mega Evovle into Mega Swampert using Swampertite. Swampert is rather strong, as it has plenty of power to drag a boulder weighing more than a ton and not even bat an eyelash. It can even see in murky water due to its powerful vision. Swampert has an advantage in two domains, Hp and Attack, as they form its highest base stats. It has two abilities Torrent and Damp.


 Swampert though it doesn’t have plenty of weaknesses, only one against Grass type, it still causes a huge disadvantage by being very slow and heavy

6. Lapras


Lapras is a Water, Ice type Pokémon. Generation 1 was the first time it made its appearance, making a name for itself — Transport Pokémon. It does not evolve into or form another Pokémon. Though this Pokémon is highly intelligent, and has the ability to understand human speech, humans drove it to extinction. It is said Lapras tends to sing mournfully to seek the attention of the few of its kind remaining. Lapras has the high HP for a Water type; three abilities, that being Shell Armor, Water Absorb, and Hydration.


 However, Lapras is not fast at all, which conquers most of its trump cards and abilities. As well as having a weakness against Electric, Fighting, Grass, and Rock types

5. Gyarados


Gyarados is a Water, Flying type Pokémon. Its first introduction was in Generation 1, claiming the name of Atrocious Pokémon. This name is not for show, as it is said when Magikarp evolves to Gyarados, its brains cells experience a structural transformation. This mainly caused its wildly violent, vicious nature. Gyarados can be obtained starting at level 20. It can Mega Evovle in Mega Gyarados using Gyaradosite. This pokémon’s strong suits are Attack and Special Defense, which mainly compensate for its rather low Special Attack. Claiming two abilities, Gyarados has Intimidate and Moxie, a hidden ability.


 However, this Pokémon gives you a lot of disadvantages for its weak and not so weak other stats. Along with its weakness against Electric and Rock types

4. Suicune


This Wataer type was introduced in Generation 2, known by the name Aurora Pokémon. It does not evolve at all, but it’s one of the Legendary Pokémon. It’s one of the Legenedary beasts resurrected by Ho-Oh after burning of Brass Tower. Suicune represents rain, the rain that doused the flames of the burning Brass Tower. It runs across lands with gracefulness, and it has the power to purify dirty water. Suicune strong suits would be Defense — 115 — and Special Defense — 115 — as well as HP. It has one special ability — Pressure.


 Suicune is quite useless against Electric and Grass types. Though it is said it runs gracefully, in battle, it’s not that fast, nor powerful in attack, so it’s best used as a shield

3. Manaphy


Manaphy is a Water type Pokémon. Its first introduction was in Generation 4. Manaphy’s infamous name is Seafaring Pokémon. This Pokémon does not evolve into or form any other Pokémon. Despite it being a Mythical Pokémon, it has the ability to breed. It also has the power to bond with any kind of Pokémon. Manaphy is a cute Pokémon and it has equality in all stats; all of them holding the number 100, no more, no less. It has one special ability — Hyderation.


 And this Pokémon has just two weaknesses, one against Electric type and the other against Grass type

2. Kyogre

Using Primal Reversion, Kyogre can become Primal Kyogren taking nature’s full power, it reverts back to its true form. It is said Kyogre can summon storms that cause raises in sea levels. This Pokémon does not evolve into any or form another. Its base stats are quite high in some and low in some. For instance, it’s rather high in Special Attack and Special difference, which forms a nice combo in a battle. Kyogre’s HP and Attack are equals, both holding the number 100, yet this ones can be a disadvantage. It has one special ability called Drizzle.


 Kyogre’s Defense and Speed don’t help much, in addition to its two weaknesses — against Grass and Electric types

It also appears in mythology. Palkia is a legendary Pokémon of Sinnoh. While Palkia does not evolve into or form any other Pokémon, it’s considered quite strong. This Pokémon proves its strength in Special attack, as it has 150, however, this doesn’t refer to its other areas as useless. Palkia can be a perfect trump card, since it doesn’t have plenty of weak spots in either Defense or Attack. Also, it has two abilities, Pressure and Telepathy.


 Yet, Palkia is not very effective against Dragon and Fairy types, as well as having a low HP of 90.


 Final Tips:


 These Water type Pokémon are very effective against Fire, Ground and Rock types, so that’s where you should summon them to win a battle. However, they, most of them, have a weakness against their own kind, plus Grass and Dragon types. On the other hand, concerning Defense, these following Pokémon types are not super effective on Water type: Fire, Water, Ice, Steel. And the super effective ones against them, in Defense still, are Electric and Grass.
