Quagsire (Japanese: ヌオー Nuoh) is a Water/Ground-type Pokémon, first seen in Pokémon Gold and Silver. It is also available in Pokémon Crystal, Pokémon FireRed, Pokémon Emerald and Pokémon Colosseum.

Quagsire comes with one of two abilities: Damp, which prevents any Pokémon from using Selfdestruct or Explosion; or Water Absorb, which causes an opponent's Template:Type2 attacks to restore HP rather than deal damage.

Quagsire evolves via level from Wooper starting at level 20.

Biology

Physiology

Gender differences

The "fin" running down a female Quagsire's back is smaller than that of a male.

Special abilities

A Pokémon Trainer who does not know their type matchups well may be tricked into sending an electric-type Pokémon into battle against Quagsire or its pre-evolution only to find that the electric attacks will do nothing.

Behavior

Quagsire are quite care-free and relaxed. Because of this, they tend to bump into boat hulls. Once a year, when the moon is full, wild Quagsire collect round objects like balls and swim to Blue Moon Falls, where they attempt to shoot the balls to the top of a waterfall with their Water Gun attacks to see who can launch their objects the highest. The day after, the objects float downstream and are considered to be blessed with luck from the Quagsire.

Habitat

Quagsire live in extremely clean bodies of freshwater. The presence of Quagsire in water is usually an excellent indicator that the water is very safe for consumption.

Wooper and Quagsire
Quagsire first appeared in Once in a Blue Moon. It stole the GS Ball from Ash for a festival.

Quagsire also makes an appearance in Love, Totodile Style.

Lisa had a Quagsire in Spell of the Unown, and used it to battle Ash against his Pikachu. After Pikachu landed on the head of Lisa's Quagsire head first, both Pokémon fainted.

A few Quagsire are also seen with many other Pokémon in Got Miltank?.

Jackson uses a Quagsire in his battle against Macey in Tie One On.

A Quagsire has also appeared in Training Wrecks, under the ownership of Rocky. Quagsire battled Ash's Pikachu and Grovyle, alongside a Walrein. Before Pikachu could nail Walrein with its Electric Attacks, Quagsire would protect Walrein from being shocked, due to its immunity to Electricity while Walrein's Ice Ball hit Grovyle and Pikachu hard, but after the Ice Ball went slower every turn, Pikachu and Grovyle defeated Walrein and Quagsire.

Several Wooper and a Quagsire made an appearance in The Rise of Darkrai.

A Quagsire made an appearance in Like It Or Lup It!.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Special manga

Trivia

Origin

Quagsire appears to be based on an adult axolotl, a species of salamander. Normally, wild axoltl have flat tails and feathery, external gills - like Wooper. However, under the care of humans, they can mature into amphibians more closely resembling other species of salamander.

Name origin

Quagsire's name is a combination of quagmire, and sire.
