Wooper (Japanese: ウパー Upah) is a dual-type Water/Ground Pokémon.

It evolves into Quagsire starting at level 20.

Biology

Physiology

Wooper is a mostly blue amphibious Pokémon that bears a resemblance to a real-life animal known as an Axolotl. Wooper stands upright on its small, round feet, and has a large, thick tail. Wooper also has purple-colored, branching gills coming out of the sides of its head, and what look like dark-blue, curved gill-like markings on its torso. Wooper’s head is large compared to its body, its mouth is wide and its eyes are small, round, and black in coloration.

Gender differences

Female Wooper have smaller gills on the sides of their heads.

Special abilities

Being a dual Water-and-Ground-type Pokémon, Wooper is able to use moves of both types, such as Water Gun and various mud-based attacks. The film covering Wooper’s body when it walks on land is also poisonous, and can cause a shooting pain if touched barehanded. Wooper also have the ability to restore health if struck by a Water-type attack.

Behavior

Wooper tend to be dull-witted Pokémon as implied in Trouble in Big Town. They tend to be oblivious to their surroundings. They also share this trait with their evolution Quagsire. Wooper lives in cold water most of the time, but it will on occasion leave the water to search for food when the temperature cools in the evening. While walking on land, it coats its body with a slimy, toxic film that keeps its skin from dehydrating and insulates itself against the cold. In the water, Wooper partially buries itself in the mud at the bottom to sleep.

Habitat

Wooper live in cold water, but will occasionally travel over the land in evening in search of food.

Origin

Bulbanews
Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:

Wooper seems to be based on a larval axolotl, which have flat tails and feathery, external gills. Its shiny sprite also matches its color to that of a larval axolotl.

Name origin

Wooper's English name appears to be based directly on its Japanese name, Upah/"Wooper". Upa is drived from "Wooper Looper", a marketing term created in Japan that started a pet salamander raising fad in Japan. Wooper Loopers (or "Upa") are the Japanese term for the larval stages of the axolotl, a species of salamander.
