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.

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 its 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 shares many similarities with its Paldean relative, Clodsire.

Quagsire is carefree and sluggish by nature, although it is protective towards Wooper. 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, as well as muddy swamps. During the day, Quagsire avoids sunlight by submerging itself in the water.

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.

Evolution

Quagsire evolves from Wooper.

Trivia

  • According to Julien Bardakoff, the French translator of the two first generations, its French name was supposed to be spelled and pronounced "Maraisté" with an acute accent on the final "e". However, mainly due to the lack of diacritics on uppercase letters in the French translations up to Generation V, players and the anime got misled and made this "e" a silent letter. As a consequence of this hegemonic usage, it has never been restored despite all diacritics being properly displayed in French on all concerned Pokémon since Black and White. The only known instance of a proper pronunciation as intended by Bardakoff is by the commentator in Pokémon Stadium 2.
