Quagsire (Japanese: ヌオー Nuoh) is a dual-type Water/Ground Pokémon.

It evolves from Wooper 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.

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.

Trivia

  • Quagsire's name is very similar to the last name of the Family Guy character, Glenn Quagmire. This has led to many jokes about Quagsire.
  • Wooper and Quagsire are the first Water-types to lose their weakness to Electric-type moves.
  • Crasher Wake has an abnormal Quagsire in Diamond and Pearl Versions: it knows the move Brine though it can't naturally learn it in any way, not even using TM55. This is corrected in Platinum Version.

Origin

Quagsire appears to be based on an adult axolotl, a species of salamander. Normally, wild axolotl 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. Its Japanese name may be a combination of 沼 numa, swamp, marsh, pond, or lake, and 王 ō, king, or オオサンショウウオ ōsanshōuo, Japanese giant salamander.

In other languages

  • German: Morlord - might be from Moor (marsh) and Lord.
  • French: Maraiste - From marais and reste.
  • Korean: 누오 Nuo - lay down
