Whiscash (Japanese: ナマズン Namazun) is a dual-type Water/Ground Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves from Barboach starting at level 30.

Biology

Whiscash is a dark blue, catfish-like Pokémon with a yellow underbelly. It has a cavernous mouth with light blue lips that have short, thin whiskers growing from the lower lips. Long, yellow barbels grow from its cheeks, and there is a yellow marking on its forehead that resembles a W. The light blue dorsal fin has a pattern of three spots arranged in a triangle, while its horizontal tail fin lacks spots. Its pectoral fins and belly fins match its main body color.

Whiscash uses its caudal fin to cause earthquakes that can extend for over three miles by hitting the bottom of swamp beds. Whiscash can predict when natural earthquakes will occur. It also uses these massive earthquakes to drive away any foes that come near it, going on rampages in the process. This behavior, along with sightings of Whiscash's leaping from lakes, has caused people to mistaken it for starting earthquakes. It lives in a nest at the bottom of ponds and swamps, and is territorial over them. Whiscash tends to wait silently for prey to come to it. This gluttonous fish will eat anything that is alive, sometimes whole, and has been shown in the anime to eat inanimate objects as well. Whiscash also has a diet of consuming mud. Whiscash has poor eyesight, so it has to use its whiskers to detect a prey's vibration.

Major appearances

Nero

Whiscash debuted in Whiscash and Ash. A fisherman named Sullivan had been hunting one nicknamed Nero for fifty years because of its huge size. After Ash had battled Nero and retrieved his Badge Case that it had eaten, Sullivan used it as his chance to finally catch Nero. However, even after using a Master Ball, Nero simply swallowed the Ball and swam away.

Other

Multiple Whiscash were set to appear in an episode that would air between Solid as a Solrock and Vanity Affair. However, the episode ultimately never aired anywhere in the world due to an earthquake that occurred in Japan sometime before its scheduled air-date.

In Eight Ain't Enough!, Juan's Whiscash was the third Pokémon that he used for the second half of his Gym battle against Ash. The Whiskers Pokémon was able to defeat Corphish but was defeated by Swellow.

In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Team Go-Getters Out of the Gate!, a Whiscash assigned Team Go-Getters and Team Meanies to rescue Pichu's brother, Pikachu.

Trivia

Origin

Whiscash may be based on Namazu, a catfish in Japanese mythology that causes earthquakes. Since its pre-evolved form appears to be based on a loach, it may also draw inspiration from loach catfish.

Name origin

Whiscash may be a combination of whisker, mustache, and possibly catfish.

Namazun may be derived from 鯰 namazu (catfish) or 大鯰 Ōnamazu, a catfish in Japanese mythology which caused earthquakes.
