Surskit first appeared in Maxxed Out. It was owned by a boy named Max, the doppelganger of May's little brother, who intends for it to be his Starter Pokémon. This made May's brother jealous as he did not know what his Starter Pokémon would be at that time.

In Destiny Deoxys, a Surskit was owned by Kathryn. The Pond Skater Pokémon's only major role was helping to rotate the fan blades of the windmills in LaRousse City.

May faced against a Surskit in the Izabe Island Contest during A Cacturne for the Worse. Harley tricked May into thinking that Surskit was an extremely slow Pokémon and nearly lost due to this lie.

A coordinator named Brianna used a Surskit in the appeals round of the Pokémon Contest in Spontaneous Combusken.

A Surskit appeared in Up Close and Personable!.

Trivia

  • No other Pokémon has the same type combination as Surskit.
    • Surskit is also the only Pokémon that loses its Template:Type2 upon evolution.
  • Surskit is one of three Template:Type2 Pokémon not to learn Surf; the others are Wingull and Magikarp.
  • Surskit can't learn any Template:Type2 moves by level up, despite having Bug as its primary type.
  • Surskit, a water strider-like Pokémon, evolves into Masquerain, a moth-like Pokémon, despite the fact that the two real animals aren't even in the same order of insects.

Origin

This Pokémon is based on the water strider.

Name origin

Surskit's name comes from a combination of surf, or surface, and skit. Ametama is probably a combination of 雨 ame, rain, and 玉 tama, sphere, although the latter could also be 魂 tama, spirit. The Japanese name could also include アメンボ amenbo, pond skater.

In other languages

  • German: Gehweiher
  • French: Arakdo - From arachnide (arachnid) and d'eau (of water).
