Samurott (Japanese: ダイケンキ Daikenki) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves from Dewott starting at level 36. It is the final form of Oshawott.

Biology

Poster showing Samurott standing on its hind legs and carrying its unsheathed seamitar

Samurott is a quadruped, blue, sea lion-like Pokémon. It has two pairs of pointed teeth, one in the upper jaw and one in the lower. Long, white whiskers extend from its snout and head, and it has a red nose and eyes. On the back of its head is a large, rounded beige helmet-like shell with spikes and a spear-like, pointed protrusion in the front. A dull bluish gray seashell-like carapace covers its underbelly, and its limbs are covered with beige, sectioned bracer-like coverings, that appear to be made of seashells. The forelimbs' bracers are actually swords called seamitars. The lower two segments of these bracers are the scabbards for the two swords, and the upper segment and spike make up the seamitar and its handle. Samurott possess three black digits on each limb, and a fin-like, splayed tail with the innermost section being beige.

When in battle, Samurott can stand on its hind legs and use one of its blades as a sword to fight. In the time it takes a foe to blink, it can draw and sheathe the seamitars attached to its front legs. One swing of its seamitar can beat opponents. It can silence foes with a glare or a howl.

Major appearances

Samurott debuted in White—Victini and Zekrom and Black—Victini and Reshiram, under the ownership of Leeku. It fought and lost to Ash's Tepig during Eindoak Town's Harvest Festival battle tournament, after Tepig received a power boost from Victini's powers.

A female Samurott made her main series debut in The Road to Humilau!, under the ownership of Cameron. Cameron first used Samurott in his Gym match against Marlon and his Mantine, which he won. During the Vertress Conference, Samurott was used against Bianca and her Escavalier, which she defeated, but she then lost to Emboar. During Cameron's match against Ash, Samurott defeated Pignite but lost to Pikachu.

Trivia

Samurott in Pokémon Battle Chess
  • Samurott, Serperior and Emboar all share the same base stat total of 528.
  • At 2.099 seconds, Samurott has the longest cry of any starter.
  • During an interview, Yusuke Ohmura said he designed Samurott before Oshawott after going to an exhibit and seeing how strong sea lions are.
  • Samurott appears in Pokémon Battle Chess. It acts as a bishop piece in chess, but can also move one square directly forward.

Origin

While its pre-evolutions are based on otters, Samurott is rather based on a sea lion and an armored samurai.[1][2] While it was decided that Oshawott would be based on an otter, the designers had issues in creating a fully evolved form which was more interesting than just as a bigger otter standing on two legs. At that point Yusuke Ohmura went to see real life otters at an exhibit, but his attention was rather caught by the strength displayed by a nearby sea lion, and thus decided that the fully evolved form would rather be based on the latter animal.[2] Furthermore, to represent the variety in the human population of Unova, it was decided that the evolution families of the starter Pokémon would be based on the West, China and Japan. In the case of the Oshawott family, it had to represent Japan, and thus was based on Japanese samurai.[2]

Samurott's tail may be based on a Japanese war fan. The "helmet" over its head appears to be based on the rare-spined murex shell. The markings on its chest make it reminiscent of a giant otter. Its ability to withdraw, attack with, and return its blade may be a reference to iaido, a Japanese martial art that uses similar swordplay in combat.

Name origin

Samurott is a combination of samurai and otter.

Daikenki is the complete on'yomi (Chinese sound) reading of 大剣鬼 daikenki (big, sword-wielding demon). This is a combination of 大 dai (big), ken (sword), and ki (demon), with 剣鬼 kenki meaning "sword-wielding demon" or "sword master". Its Chinese and Korean names are based on this reading. 大 dai may refer to Samurott's place in the evolutionary line, as the biggest and therefore final evolution.
