Oshawott (Japanese: ミジュマル Mijumaru) is a Water-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Dewott starting at level 17, which evolves into Samurott starting at level 36.

Along with Snivy and Tepig, Oshawott is one of three starter Pokémon of Unova available at the beginning of Pokémon Black, White, Black 2, and White 2.

Biology

Oshawott is a bipedal sea otter-like Pokémon. It has a spherical white head with small, triangular dark-blue ears on the sides. Oshawott's eyes are dark and its dark orange nose is shaped like a horizontal oval. Several freckles cover its cheeks, and two pointed teeth can be seen when it opens its mouth. The light blue fur on its body forms bubble shapes around its neck. Its arms are white and rounded, while its feet are dark blue with three toes each. It also possesses a rudder-like dark blue tail. It carries a pale yellow seashell called a "scalchop" on its belly. This shell is made of the same material as its claws, and is used for both battle and cracking hard berries.

Trivia

The three silhouettes on Pokémon Sunday
  • Oshawott and its fellow Unova starter Pokémon were first revealed as silhouettes on the May 9, 2010 episode of Pokémon Sunday. They were later revealed in full in the June 2010 issue of CoroCoro.
  • Oshawott is the only Water-type starter Pokémon to be based on a mammal.
  • Oshawott has the lowest base stat total of all Water-type starter Pokémon.
  • Oshawott is the only Water-type starter Pokémon that is not a member of the Water 1 Egg Group.
  • Oshawott, along with Snivy and Tepig, has the lowest base experience yield, with a base of 28.
  • Oshawott, along with the other two Unova starter Pokémon, are the only starter Pokémon to evolve at an odd-numbered level: 17.
  • Oshawott was designed by Yūsuke Ōmura.

Origin

Oshawott is based on a sea otter pup and samurai[1]. The way that Oshawott's scalchop rests on its belly resembles the way otters look when cracking open shells to eat. This scalchop also holds similarities with Japanese war fans, which were often used by samurai for defensive purposes. Ken Sugimori said that Oshawott and its evolutions were the hardest for the team to design during production, as conceptualizing its evolutions were difficult. They eventually settled on a samurai theme and making its final form a sea lion after a trip to an aquarium.[2]

Name origin

Oshawott may be a combination of ocean, shell, water, and otter. It may be a reference to Oshawa, Canada, as Canada contains many protected areas in which sea otters reside, the name of which comes from the Ojibwa word aazhaway ("crossing the river" or "to leave one's canoe behind"). Oshawott may refer to Asherah, the Hebrew goddess also known as the "Lady of the Sea". It may also derive from George Ohsawa, a famed dietitian born into a poor samurai family during the Meiji Restoration of Japan.

Mijumaru may be a combination of 水 mizu (water) or 未熟 mijuku (naive or immature) and 丸 maru (round). Maru is also a common suffix in male Japanese names. Miju may also refer to an otter named Mijbil, the subject of an autobiographical novel and movie called Ring of Bright Water.
