Cilan's Stunfisk (Japanese: デントのマッギョ Dent's Maggyo) is the second Pokémon Cilan caught while on his journey with Ash and Iris.


Stunfisk was first seen inhabiting a lake with its friend Palpitoad in BW035. Palpitoad asked for Stunfisk's help to get rid of Ash and Oshawott as it viewed them as intruders. Stunfisk managed to get them out of the lake and planned to guard against them. But Cilan used his fishing skills to catch and pull Stunfisk to shore. Palpitoad then appeared before the group and had Stunfisk fire Mud Bomb at the Pokémon Connoisseur but he managed to evade it. Cilan then lifted his fishing rod in the air and started to spin Stunfisk around; keeping it at bay until Ash was able to defeat Palpitoad. Once he did, Cilan dropped the Trap Pokémon to the ground which, with the combination of dizziness, knocked it out and Cilan captured it.


In its debut, Stunfisk was quite aggresive, like the other Pokémon living in the lake. Furthermore Stunfisk enjoyed keeping Ash and Cilan away from the lake and laughed when it hit them with its attacks. However strong Stunfisk was, it still obeyed Palpitoad, proving it doesn't function well in a group without being a 'follower'. After Cilan caught Stunfisk, its personality did not change; as shown in BW039 where after being brought out by Emolga's Volt Switch it attacked a newly revived curious Archen with a Discharge attack when Archen pecked it and subsequently laughed.
