Dewott (Japanese: フタチマル Futachimaru) is a Water-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Oshawott starting at level 17 and evolves into Samurott starting at level 36.

Biology

Physiology

Dewott is a bipedal, otter-like Pokémon that is primarily light blue in coloration. It has small black ears, a pointed crest at the back of its head, a red nose shaped like a tilted oval, and long white whiskers forming tilted "V" shapes. Its forelimbs sport three fingers on each black-colored paw. Around its waist is a large, blue, fringed adornment, with scalchops—like those Dewott possessed as an Oshawott—on the thighs. Its feet are tipped in black and its somewhat plank-shaped tail is also black-colored.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Dewott can detach the two scalchops from its hips and use them as bladed weapons. Scalchop-wielding attacks differ between Dewott.

Behavior

Dewott strictly train themselves to be able to master its scalchop swordsmanship. It never fails when keeping its scalchops in shape.

Habitat

Dewott primarily live in water, but are actually amphibious, like Oshawott and Samurott.

Trivia

Origin

Dewott is based on a sea otter and samurai[1]. Its trait of fighting with its two shells may be based on Tessenjutsu, a type of martial arts involving the Japanese war fan.

Name origin

Dewott may be a combination of dew, water and otter. It may also involve duel or dual (referring to the two scalchops it fights with), or duo (Italian for two, referring to its place in its evolutionary line). Notably, Helen DeWitt is the name of the author of The Last Samurai.

Futachimaru may be a combination of 二つ futatsu (two), 太刀 tachi (long sword), and 丸 maru (a common ending in a boy's name, especially in the time of samurai). 二 futa (alternate reading of ni) may refer to Dewott's place in the evolutionary line.
