Quagsire (Japanese: ヌオー Nuoh) is a dual-type Water/Ground Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves from Wooper starting at level 20.

Contents

Biology

Quagsire is a light blue, bipedal, amphibious Pokémon. Its head is broad and round, having little neck to distinguish it from the rest of Quagsire's body. It has a wide mouth and tiny, black eyes. A wavy, purple stripe runs down its back. Along its spine is a dark blue fin, which is larger on the male than on the female. Quagsire's hands and feet both have three digits. Its outer layer of skin is slimy and slippery.

Quagsire is carefree and sluggish by nature. An unintelligent Pokémon, it tends to bump its head inadvertently while swimming and seems not to care. It hunts for food by leaving its mouth wide open in water and waiting for its unaware prey to blunder in. Because Quagsire does not move, it does not get very hungry and can afford to wait for its food. Quagsire lives in clean bodies of freshwater and muddy swamps.

In the anime, wild Quagsire are shown to have an annual celebration at Blue Moon Falls when the moon is full. There they attempt to shoot round objects they have collected to the top of a waterfall with their attacks to see who can launch their objects the highest, with the apparent target being the moon.

Game data

NPC appearances

  • Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity: Quagsire appears as the landlord of Paradise as well as an important character in the storyline. The player's partner buys land from him at the beginning of the game that would become the headquarters for the player's exploration team. He also runs an area similar to the Chimecho Assembly from the previous games. Like some members of Wigglytuff's Guild, he has a catchphrase, which is "hmm". He is also responsible for dealing with captured outlaws, much like Magnezone before him. He is known to be a hard taskmaster to these Pokémon. Quagsire reappears in Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon where he is now a resident of Lively Town.
