With seven generations of Pokémon to choose from, it’s no easy task narrowing it down to just 30. But, after careful deliberation, we’ve come up with what we believe are the best fish Pokémon of all time. From fan-favorites like Gyarados and Crawdaunt to more obscure picks like Feebas and Carvanha, these water-dwellers have proven themselves as some of the most powerful (and sometimes quirky) Pokémon around. So if you’re looking for a little inspiration for your next aquatic adventure inPokémon GO, look no further than this list!
Best Fish Pokémon From All Generations
Ability: Sniper or Hustle Height – 1’00” | Weight – 16.4 lbs
Known moves – Tackle, Smokescreen, Water Gun, Rock Blast, Focus Energy, Psybeam This small blue seahorse-like Pokémon is often seen in the tentacles of a clamped Octillery. It’s best known for the suction cup on its head that allows it to clamp onto larger Pokémon like Mantine and use them as transportation. Don’t let its cute appearance fool you into thinking this little guy isn’t deadly in battle though! As long as it holds its signature Scope Lens item (which boosts the power of critical hits), Remoraid can fire powerful assaults with the Sniper ability that can even hit through an opponent’s Protect move.
Type: Water Height – 2’11” | Weight – 33.1 lbs
Known moves – Tackle, Charm, Water Gun A heart-shaped Pokémon with a pink body surrounded by two blue stripes, Luvdisc is often found swimming in small groups near the surface of the sea. This Pokémon is said to be extremely faithful to its trainer and will help out any way it can if properly bonded with its trainer. Despite its cute appearance, Luvdisc has proven itself as one of the best Pokémon for fishing thanks to its Tracking ability which allows it to find rare underwater items like Heart Scales and Deep Seas Sheilds.
Type: Water Height – 1’04” | Weight – 14.3 lbs
Known moves – Tackle, Withdraw, Icicle Spear One of the few Pokémon that can evolve twice (first into Cloyster and then into either Tentacruel or Slowbro), Shellder is a water-dwelling bivalve with a black pearl stuck in its side. This durable and slow Pokémon can be quite deadly despite its low offensive stats thanks to its signature ability Shell Armor which prevents any critical hits from landing on this tough little guy. And even though it isn’t very fast, it often has no problem catching up when it’s charging towards an opponent at full speed! However if someone manages to remove its shell (usually with the move Knock Off) this slowpoke has nothing to protect it and can be taken down easily.
Type: Water Height – 2’04” | Weight – 24.3 lbs
Stunfisk is a bizarre-looking Pokémon that resembles a flat, gray fish with two horizontal brown stripes running down its body. This electric-type Pokémon is said to be so poisonous that it can kill other Pokémon just by touching them. While it may not look like much, Stunfisk is one of the most powerful electric-types in the game and can take down even the strongest foes with its signature ability Static which paralyzes any opponent that touches it. So if you’re looking for a new challenge in Pokémon GO, consider adding Stunfisk to your team!
Type: Water Height – 3’03” | Weight – 84.8 lbs
Known moves – Bubble, Supersonic Interesting enough, this long pink aquatic creature isn’t actually based on a fish but rather a fictional sea slug called a “Liphistiase”, which is known for its mysteriously beautiful heart shaped shell on its back. This Pokémon is often seen swimming in large groups near the surface of the sea and can be quite difficult for an opponent to take down thanks to its ability Swift Swim which increases Gorebyss’s speed by 50% when it’s raining outside (making it one of the fastest Pokémon out there).
Type: Water Height – 2’11” | Weight – 41.9 lbs
Bruxish is a fish-like Pokémon that is said to be quite territorial. This colorful Pokémon has a reddish-orange body with green and blue stripes, and two protruding fangs that it uses to crush its prey. Bruxish is a powerful Pokémon that can use its psychokinetic powers to confuse opponents, and it often uses its colorful appearance to intimidate enemies. In fact, Bruxish will sometimes go as far as biting its opponents in order to release its psychokinetic energy! So if you’re looking for a fierce new water-type to add to your team, be sure to add Bruxish to your list.
Type: Water/Psychic Height – 2’07” | Weight – 176.8 lbs
Known moves – Bubble, Tackle Discovered along with the other original 151 Pokémon back in 1996, Starmie was originally known as “Starmie (スターミー)” and was labelled as the “Nebula Pokémon”. This extraterrestrial creature is known for its star-like design, right down to the four points at its body which are often hidden behind a thin membrane. Starmie’s appearance would change significantly in 1999 when it received a huge upgrade with an alternate sprite that was significantly brighter than the original. It also gained another new shiny form much later on in Generation VI which made Starmie look even more like a glowing cosmic life form! Like most Psychic-types, Starmie can be quite tough to take down thanks to its ability Natural Cure which cleanses any inflicted status effects every turn it remains active in battle.
Type: Water Height – 2’11 | Weight – 52.0 lbs
Whiscash is a large, green-colored fish Pokémon that is said to be the guardian of all water. This powerful Pokémon can use its massive body to crush its opponents, and it often uses its ability Anticipation to detect any oncoming attacks. Whiscash is also capable of launching devastating attacks against its foes, such as its signature move Earthquake which can cause serious damage to any opponent that’s not immune to ground-type moves. So if you’re looking for a tough new water-type Pokémon to add to your team, be sure to add Whiscash to your list!
Type: Water/Flying Height – 3’11” | Weight – 66.6 lbs
Known moves – Tackle, Protect Pelipper is a large seagull-like bird that can be seen flying above the surface of the sea all around the world in most regions (except for Hoenn and Alola). Pelipper also comes with two notable features; its ability Keen Eye prevents opponents from lowering this Pokémon’s accuracy stat by any means, while its signature move Waterfall is quite unique as it deals damage to both enemy Pokémon and their opposing trainer at the same time! As you’d expect from a Water-type like Pelipper, this big bird also has the ability to swim across bodies of water at incredible speed thanks to its skill Hydration which cleanses any inflicted status effects every turn it remains active in battle.
Type: Water Height – 3’11” | Weight – 49.6 lbs
Lanturn is a water-type Pokémon that was introduced in Generation II. This fish-like Pokémon is known for its small, glowing orb at the end of its tail, which can light up the dark depths of the sea. Lanturn is a rare Pokémon that can only be found in certain bodies of water, and it’s one of the few Pokémon that can learn the move Waterfall. Lanturn is a powerful Pokémon that can learn up to six different moves, including Thunder Wave which paralyzes opponents.
Type: Water Height – 26’07” | Weight – 494.0 lbs
Known moves – Water Spout Possibly the largest Pokémon in existence (but not confirmed), this giant blue whale has quite an interesting backstory because it was originally revealed by Ken Sugimori as a scrapped concept for Wailmer before being officially announced years later on his personal blog! Despite its immense bulk, Wailord is actually very light since its body is mostly filled with water which helps keep it afloat. While you might think that this makes it easy to dodge or counterattack, there’s one skill that makes this Pokémon extremely useful; its ability Oblivious prevents Wailord from becoming infatuated with your opponent’s team which allows it to survive many different kinds of status effects.
Type: Water Height – 4’11” | Weight – 88.2 lbs
Known moves – Agility, Aqua Jet Floatzel is quite a unique Pokémon because its appearance and ability Swift Swim actually makes this water-type more of a water-type than Gyarados! Its speed also helps it avoid damage thanks to its ability Unaware which means that even super effective attacks don’t do as much damage against Floatzel as you’d normally expect them too. This agile fish Pokémon can easily dodge most physical and special moves while striking back with its signature move Aqua Jet; a fast attack that doubles in power if Floatzel is attacked right before using it!
Type: Water/Rock Height – 2’04” | Weight – 13.2 lbs
Known moves – Tackle, Harden, BubbleBeam Corsola is a rare coral-like Pokémon that’s often found by fisherman and divers underwater because of its unique abilities. The main ability here is called Regenerator which means that as soon as this water-type takes a hit during battle, it will heal back some HP every turn for the remainder of the fight! This makes Corsola extremely difficult to defeat especially when you consider its secondary ability Hustle which increases the damage it inflicts while also lowering the accuracy of any opposing attacks! While this Pokémon can’t learn any water-type moves by leveling up, it has access to a wide range of different techniques from TMs and HMs so you can always teach this little coral fish new tricks!
Type: Water/Ice Height – 3’11” | Weight – 292.0 lbs
Known moves – Withdraw, Ice Shard One of the first fully evolved Pokémon that appeared in Generation I, Cloyster is actually quite odd looking because its shell resembles a pearl; not what we’d expect from an aquatic creature like this! Regardless of its appearance however, Cloyster is one of the best options for players who like using strong ice attacks against their opponents as shown by its Skill Link which deals damage to the opponent whenever it uses any multi-hitting attacks like Icy Wind! The best part about Cloyster is that it doesn’t evolve which means you’ll always have access to this powerful defensive Pokémon.
Type: Water Height – 1’08” | Weight – 8.6 lbs
Qwilfish is a unique water-type Pokémon that doesn’t quite look like any of the others. This fish has a round body with spikes all over it and two large pectoral fins that it uses to swim. What makes Qwilfish so special, however, is its ability to inflate itself like a balloon which makes it immune to physical attacks! While this might make it seem invulnerable, Qwilfish can only stay inflated for a short amount of time so you’ll need to use it wisely in battle. Its other ability, Intimidate, reduces the attack power of opponents who attack it which can be very helpful when facing off against tougher opponents.
Type: Water Height – 11’02” | Weight – 393.9 lbs
Known moves – Surf, Recover One of the most beautiful creatures from any Generation is without a doubt Milotic; a rare aquatic Pokémon that’s been given special status by Trainers who hope to see one in their lifetime! This elegant seahorse is only available through evolution after spending time training a Feebas but it’s well worth the effort because this Pokémon can learn a wide range of different techniques including Surf, Recover, and even Hyper Beam! Milotic is also capable of learning various special moves like Blizzard which makes it the perfect option for anyone looking to use an ice attack in battle.
Type: Water/Rock Height – 5’03” | Weight – 77.0 lbs
Known moves – Water Gun, Withdraw, Horn Attack While this might not be the most popular option on the list, Omastar actually has some interesting options that players can take advantage of during battle. For example its shell acts as an extremely strong defense against opposing water-type attacks so while you’d normally expect more damage from standard water-type moves, Omastar can actually minimize the damage it takes by using this ability at the right time! Additionally, Omastar is capable of learning several water-type moves through leveling up which means you’ve got plenty of options for teaching this prehistoric Pokémon new tricks!
Type: Water Height – 4’03” | Weight – 132.4 lbs
Known moves – Bubble, Vicegrip One of the bigger creatures on this list is also one of the most popular choices for players who want to deal with an opponent’s water-type Pokémon in battle! That’s because Kingler can learn both Bubble and Vicegrip which are two extremely powerful attacks that will always inflict major damage against any opposing water-type Pokémon during battle! Combine this with Crunch which has a high chance of inflicting the opponent with any status ailment, and you’ve got yourself one dangerous creature that can change the tide of any battle!
Type: Water Height – 2’04” | Weight – 77.0 lbs
Known moves – Bubble, Supersonic While Clamperl isn’t exactly what most people would consider to be “sexy”, there’s still something about this deep-sea Pokémon that has made it a favorite amongst countless Trainers over the years! This is because Clamperl is capable of learning several different water-type attacks but perhaps its biggest advantage lies in its shell which acts as an extremely defense against opposing water-type attacks! In other words, it’s always a good idea to have at least one Clamperl in your Pokémon team because when the going gets tough, there’s nothing better than having a fortified Pokemon that can absorb damage from opposing water-type creatures.
Type: Water Height – 3’03” | Weight – 39.7 lbs
Basculin is a fish-like Pokémon that can be found in both the water and on land. There are two different varieties of Basculin, red and blue, and they both have different abilities. The blue variety is more aggressive and has the ability to swim faster in the water. The red variety is less aggressive and has the ability to swim faster on land. Basculin can learn a variety of moves, including Bubble and Aqua Tail.
Type: Water/Psychic Height – 5’07” | Weight – 173.3 lbs
Known moves – Confusion, Disable This Pokémon might not be as popular as some of its other choices on this list but it still has enough advantages during battle that make it worth adding to your party! For example, Slowking can learn both Confusion and Disable which are two extremely useful attacks in battle! These moves will deal damage to your opponent while also disabling one of their key moves so even if there’s a chance you might not defeat them during battle, you can still make it more difficult for them to deal with your team later on!
Type: Water Height – 5’07” | Weight – 169.5 lbs
Known moves – Confusion, Hydro Pump One of the most popular choices at the beginning of each new generation is likely to remain one of the top options throughout all generations because Golduck simply has so many great advantages that can help any trainer in battle! This creature is capable of learning several different water-type attacks like Bubble and Hydro Pump which are both extremely powerful attacks that can deal major damage against your opponent.

Combine this with Fury Cutter which will allow it to attack twice per round, and you’ve got yourself one dangerous fighting machine that can defeat nearly anything in its path!
Type: Electric/Steel Height – 3’11” | Weight – 132.1 lbs
Known moves – Thunder Wave, Tri Attack There are few Pokémon in the entire list who can claim to be more effective at stopping opponents in their tracks than this steel and electric type that’s capable of both paralyzing your opponent while also dealing them damage! This is because Magneton can learn both Thunder Wave and Tri Attack which are both extremely useful techniques when you’re looking to hold off any major threat that might appear during battle. Combine this with Metal Sound which will lower the special defense of all opponents by two levels, and you’ve got yourself one of the most dangerous forces in all generations!
