Quaxly (Japanese: クワッス Kuwassu) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IX.

Along with Sprigatito and Fuecoco, Quaxly is one of three starter Pokémon of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

Along with Sprigatito and Fuecoco, it was the first Generation IX Pokémon to be revealed to the public on February 27, 2022, through a Pokémon Presents video presentation.

Biology

Quaxly is a white duckling-like Pokémon. It has a yellow beak and blue eyes. It has teal webbed feet and a large teal coif-like crest that covers its head, with a feathery tuft in the front and a white curvy line shaped like a wave. Quaxly's coif has a smooth feel thanks to the rich, moist cream that holds it. The coif can become unkempt should it get dry.[1]

Quaxly is an earnest and tidy Pokémon. Quaxly's feathers secrete a glossy gel which protects its body against water and grime. It hates getting itself dirty, especially on its head. Quaxly's strong legs allow it to swim without issues, even in strong currents. It also uses its legs to repeatedly kick its foes with swift speed.[1]

Trivia

Origin

Quaxly appears to be based on a young crested duck. The crest itself resembles a beret, a sailor cap, or a pompadour hairstyle. The teal colorations on its feet and crest may be inspired by the blue-footed booby.

Name origin

Quaxly may be derived from quack, aqua, wax (referring to hair wax), and duckling.

Kuwassu may be derived from クワック kuwakku (quack), Wasser (German for water), and wax. Notably, クワッス (Kuwassu) is an anagram of ワックス (wax).
