In the anime
It was also used in the [[Whirl Cup]] and during the [[Princess Day|Princess Festival]], where it finally defeated {{Ash}} and [[Jessie]].
Psyduck cannot swim, which is unusual for its species. In deep water it will panic and flail about, like a non-swimmer afraid of drowning. On one occasion it was given a lifebelt for it to enjoy the water. It also has trouble in battle. It knows several powerful {{type2|Psychic}} techniques, but can only use them when its headache is severe. When Psyduck battled [[Tyra]]'s {{p|Cloyster}} in ''[[EP036|The Bridge Bike Gang]]'', Misty considered trying to boost its power by slamming a [[Bicycle|bike]] onto its head.
Misty cleverly used Psyduck in battle in ''[[EP110|The Stun Spore Detour]]''. As {{MTR}} was about to attack, she recalled {{TP|Misty|Staryu}} and sent out Psyduck. Meowth angrily bit Psyduck's head, which caused Psyduck to have a severe headache, allowing it to use its Psychic powers and defeat him.
