550B.png Due to special coding in place in the article to illustrate Basurao's forms, certain displays will change showing Basurao in its Blue Stripe form. This will only affect the artwork shown in the infobox and the evobox which is unhidden. This changes every hour, so when the time comes, click here to return to the page and change the display.

Name Origin

Its name is probably a combination of バス Basu, Bass, and バカラオ Bakarao, Bacalhau. - unsigned comment from KurowaSan (talkcontribs)

Thanks. I'll add that. However, anyone is allowed to edit this page, as well as the other two's. Thanks again. I noticed you already added it. Turtwig's A-B-Cs (talk | contribs) 03:19, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Form differences

Has it been specified which form is in which version? Turtwig's A-B-Cs (talk | contribs) 11:52, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

No, but I'm wondering why both forms aren't in the article. --Element03 16:43, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
Done. ht14 21:57, 15 September 2010 (UTC)


Basurao's abilities depend on the forme; the Red version has Reckless and the Blue version has Rock Head Vienna Waltz 15:05, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

Are you sure that it's Rock Head and not Adaptability? --SnorlaxMonster 07:15, 4 October 2010 (UTC)
Are you sure that's how it goes? I see no confirmation of that anywhere. In fact, whoever extracted the date for smogon seems to disagree and I have a friend claiming he already has both abilities in both formes. I'll test it myself, if I find it to be untrue, I'll change it. Mr. Charlie(TalkToMe) 22:03, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
OK, and is the ability Adaptability or Rock Head? --SnorlaxMonster 09:58, 7 October 2010 (UTC)
Just confirmed. Caught a few Blue Forme Basurao, some had Reckless, some had Adaptability. Mr. Charlie(TalkToMe) 22:09, 7 October 2010 (UTC)
And now, to make an already complicated subject even more complicated, the Basurao obtained in Hodomoe City, through trade, does have Rock Head. So now I have a bunch of Blue Forme Basurao with Reckless, a bunch with Adaptability and one with Rock Head. What do we do now? Mr. Charlie(TalkToMe) 16:43, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
So it has 4 abilities? I'm going to have to play with the template to get that to work. --SnorlaxMonster 07:58, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
I managed to add it in. The Dream World ability is a bit squashed now, but it works. --SnorlaxMonster 08:29, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

Really, guys? Only the red one looks like it, and only marginally. I say we remove that. --AndyPKMN 17:48, 6 October 2010 (UTC)


Are different striped Basurao able to breed? If so, should that be in the trivia as they don't get along? It's Turtwig A! My talk or wiki edits 01:39, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

It's Forbidden love and I think they can Ataro 01:42, 10 October 2010 (UTC)
Like how Zangoose and Seviper can breed. --SnorlaxMonster 07:11, 10 October 2010 (UTC)


It might just be me, but other than a fish, couldn't its overall look be based of a submarine? The thing that points to it for me, is the black spots/circles on its body, which might be like the windows of a real submarine? Also its tail reminds a little like the tail of a submarine.--Mattii 00:02, 11 October 2010 (UTC)

  • It's just you. It looks NOTHING like a submarine to me. - 050294 08:01, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
    • Reminds me of my grampa, looks like an old man with few teeth. --Vemoth 00:59, 17 November 2010 (UTC)


Please move, thanks!--immewnitythemew 16:03, 2 December 2010 (UTC)
