Characteristics

Defensively, the Water type is very strong when combined with high defensive stats. As every Water-type, with the exception of Magikarp, can use Template:Type2 moves to counter Template:Type2s (although Magikarp can learn one Template:Type2 move, Bounce, which can also counter Grass-types), Electric is the only true threat to Water-types. That is not the case if the Pokémon in question are part Ground like Quagsire, Swampert, Whiscash, and Gastrodon, in which their Electric weakness is nullified but their Grass weakness is more effective. Water-types often have the most balanced attributes, usually coming with decent Attack, Special Attack, and Defense stats, but below average Speed.

The Water type is also useful offensively. Water-type Pokémon can learn Ice Beam to deal with Dragon- and Template:Type2s, which would make their resistance to Water-type attacks irrelevant. It can be extremely useful to be super-effective against Ground- and Template:Type2s when traveling through caves, etc. As a result of these advantages, as well as having to get through water routes using Surf, Waterfall, and even Whirlpool or Dive, most Trainers usually have at least one Water-type in their party. Also, double weaknesses to Water are fairly common (largely due to the common Rock/Ground typing) while there are only five Pokémon that have a double resistance to Water. (All of which are Water types themselves)

When used in contests, Water-type moves typically become Beauty moves, but can also be any of the other four Contest types, excluding Cool.

As of Generation IV, there are 92 Pokémon with the Water type, thus making it the most abundant elemental type.
