35 Best Water Type Pokemon Ever All Gens (Updated in 2024)

Oh, Pokemon that live in water! I have seen many cute Pokemon in this category, and who wouldn’t want to keep some cute magical animals with them while they are on a beach or surfing across an ocean?

Now, for those of you who feel a connection to Water Type Pokemon and want an awesome water Pokemon on your team or want a fully aquatic team like Misty from Cerulean City.

I chose 35 of the best water-type Pokémon from all regions and put them in order.

Let’s get right to the list of the 35 best water-type Pokemon from all generations.

Pokémon: 10 Harsh Realities Of Being A Water-Type

Updated June, 2024, by Swati: The 177 water-type Pokemon in the games are among the most popular.

As gamers know, Pokemon have two types,

each with different STAB (Same Type Attack Bonus) techniques and ways to be hit for damage.

Water-type Pokemon can severely hurt Rock, Ground, and Fire-type Pokemon,

therefore having one on the team is usually useful. Fire, water, steel, and ice prevent movement.

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet introduced numerous popular Water-types.

Pokemon has several Water-types, thus this page now features more of the best.

40. Tatsugiri

How Pokemon Scarlet and Violet's Tatsugiri Turns Double Battles on Their  Head

A water Pokemon that shouts out “Sushi” and looks like a little pink fish is very hard to dislike.

Tatsugiri is a quick, high-special attack and high-special defence Water/Dragon type Pokemon that first appeared in Scarlet and Violet.

Amazing sort is dragon/water.

Just the two weaknesses are Fairy and Dragon.

Three resistances are presented to steel, water, and fire.

Furthermore impacted are the sorts of Fire, Ground, Dragon, and Rock.

It is able to use Commander and Storm Drain, two very powerful skills.

Commander pushes Tatsugiri into a Dondozo if one exists in a Double Battle.

It is impossible to switch, but it obtains double stats as a trade-off.

Storm Drains shield users from Water-type attacks and,

should one be launched upon them, boost their Special Attack.

39. Veluza

Does Veluza evolve in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?

Generation 9 has already received a few Water-Type Pokemon and combinations of Water type Pokemon.

Introduced in Scarlet and Violet, Veluza is a water/psychic-type Pokemon with mediocre stats other than its high attack and HP.

~This type combination does have five weaknesses to Bug, Dark, Ghost, Grass, and Electric in exchange for its six resistances to Fighting, Steel, Fire, Ice, Water, and Psychic.

Since no one type can endure two STABs at once, its attack hits five distinct types,

which is a significant advantage.
Of Veluza’s two skills, Mould Breaker is without a doubt the more noteworthy one.

It increases the strength of Slicing Moves by 50%, hence some of Veluza’s blows are rather strong.

38. Palafin

Palafin PH042 35 Best Water Type Pokemon Ever All Gens (Updated in 2024)

A dolphin Pokemon has long been sought for,

and in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet one did ultimately show up in Palafin and its pre-evolved form, Finizen.

The Zero to Hero specialisation belongs to Palafin.

When it is replaced during combat, it takes on its Hero form,

which has increased stats and a whole new appearance.

One is strongly reminded of superheroes.
However, utilising a nuzlocke during fighting might make this dangerous and exhausting.

In its Hero form, Palafin boasts astounding stats—at 650 base points,

it is practically Legendary Pokemon.

What impedes it is that it lacks this form from the start of the battle.

37. Carracosta

Carracosta/Haxorus fusion I made. : r/pokemon

Friend of Ferris in the Pokemon anime, Carracosta has never been as popular as a certain first-generation turtle.

But in 2019 major awards in Pokemon TCG tournaments began to go to a deck with a Carracosta theme.

A Carracosta-GX deck also became somewhat well-known in 2020; several Poketubers made films about it.

Though there is proof that it can survive hits, Pokemon fans might not give this water/rock fossil enough credit.

Being a dual-type Pokemon with both Water and Rock,

Carracosta picks up a range of offensive techniques that, when used skillfully, may be rather lethal.

The greatest move of the Water-type for Carracosta is Hydro Pump,

while Aqua Tail and Brine are also excellent options.

Rain Dance and Shell Smash should also be taught by trainers.

36. Tapu Fini

Pokemon Go: Best Counters for Tapu Fini | The Nerd Stash

Tapu Fini, a brick house, is not likely to fall down soon.

The Legendary Pokemon is quite good in both Defence and Special Defence, with base ratings of 115 and 130, respectively.

Not a slouch in any of the other categories either, save HP, with a strong 95 Special Attack and a respectable 85 Speed.

Though not the club’s most beloved Legendary, Tapu Fini should be a useful addition to most teams.

The Pokemon’s Water/Fairy type distinguishes it even more from the others because such a combination is unusual.

Apart from the highly useful Misty Surge ability, Tapu Fini picks up all the major hitters anticipated from its dual type.

Although Soak and Misty Terrain may, when used well, change the direction of a battle,

Hydro Pump and Moonblast are great uses of the Pokemon’s Special Attack.
