{{Types}}
The '''Water type''' (Japanese: '''みずタイプ''' ''Water type'') is one of the eighteen [[type]]s. Notable {{pkmn|Trainer}}s who [[Type expert|specialize]] in Water-type {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} include [[Misty]] of [[Cerulean City]], [[Juan]] and [[Wallace]] of [[Sootopolis City]], [[Crasher Wake]] of [[Pastoria City]], [[Cress]] of [[Striaton City]], [[Marlon]] of [[Humilau City]], [[Siebold]] of the {{DL|Elite Four|Kalos Elite Four}}, and [[Trial Captain]] [[Lana]] of [[Konikoni City]]. Prior to [[Generation IV#Advances in gameplay|changes in Generation IV]], all damaging Water-type moves were [[special move|special]], but they may now also be [[physical move|physical]] depending on the attack.
 
==Statistical averages==
 
===Offense===
Almost all Water-type Pokémon can learn strong {{type|Ice}} moves to deal with {{t|Dragon}} and {{t|Grass}} types. {{t|Flying}} also has good coverage in conjunction with Water attacks. Though not a type, {{m|Freeze-Dry}} has even better coverage in conjunction with Water, as every type that resists water is weak to Freeze-Dry. A Pokémon can resist this combination only when aided by an [[Ability]], such as {{a|Water Absorb}}.
 
[[Weather]] can affect Water-type moves, with {{weather|rain}} boosting its power and {{weather|harsh sunlight}} reducing it, while extremely harsh sunlight causes Water-type moves to fail completely.
