Psyduck (Japanese: コダック Koduck) is a Water-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Golduck starting at level 33.

Biology

Physiology

Psyduck resembles a yellow duck or platypus with a vacant stare. It has three small tufts of black hair at the top of its head. It walks on its hind legs, has a stubby tail, and has arms rather than wings. Its arms are useful in using its powerful psychic abilities. Its appearance, according to the Pokédex, is meant to trick enemies into thinking it is weak. It has arms with three claws on each to deliver scratches if threatened.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Psyduck is constantly stunned by its headache. It usually stands immobile, with a vacant expression, trying to calm its headache. However, when its headache becomes too severe, it releases tension in the form of strong psychic powers.

Behavior

Psyduck are usually unable to think very clearly due to having a chronic headache. Because of the headache, a Psyduck will always hold its head. When these headaches worsen, Psyduck may use psychic powers.

Habitat

Psyduck live in freshwater lakes, small ponds, or rivers in tropical areas. It is a widespread Pokémon common in Kanto, Johto, and Sinnoh. It has also been imported to the Hoenn Safari Zone.

Major appearances

Misty's Psyduck

Misty has a Psyduck that she accidentally caught in Hypno's Naptime. It is a constant source of frustration for her, as it frequently emerges from its Poké Ball to attempt to battle the opponent in substitution of one of her other Pokémon. Despite this, she has been shown to deeply care for it. Despite being generally shown as dimwitted and oblivious, when its headache gets bad enough, it has been shown to use phenomenally powerful Psychic-type moves which far exceed its normal ability.

In Sitting Psyduck, a Psyduck was owned by a rich girl named Emily. However, the Psyduck didn't like having a pampered life-style and kept running away.

It first appeared to Red like a normal Psyduck, until it attempted an assault on him: its eyeballs suddenly sunk into its eye sockets and some skin fell off, revealing its bones. Since it was just a mindless undead, it was easily destroyed by Red's Bulbasaur using Vine Whip.

After several other appearances, a herd of Psyduck appeared, blocking the route to Celestic Town, just as they had in the games. However, included among them were Trainer Pokémon, and this was all a ruse by Team Galactic, which Cynthia catches on to shortly after calming them.

Generation I
Red While lulling its enemies with its vacant look, this wily Pokémon will use psychokinetic powers.

Stadium Appears unaware and totally vacant. However, if its chronic headache worsens, it starts exhibiting peculiar powers.
Generation II
Gold It has mystical powers but doesn't recall that it has used them. That is why it always looks puzzled.

Crystal The only time it can use its psychic power is when its sleeping brain cells happen to wake.
Stadium 2 It has mystical powers but doesn't recall that it has used them. That is why it always looks puzzled.

Trivia

Origin

Psyduck's apparent lack of feathers and ability to fly, along with its claws, suggest that its design draws inspiration from a platypus with some influence from ducks.

Name origin

Psyduck is a combination of psychic (referring to its mental powers) and duck.

Koduck may be a combination of 子ko (child) and duck.
