Why isn't Psyduck classified as water/psychic, instead of just water? Aiddat 01:51, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

Why don't you ask Satoshi Taijiri himself?--Pokencyclopedia 10:53, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

Heh, somebody probably just forgot something. I mean, when they designed the Pokemon. Aiddat 11:58, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

Maybe because only Psyduck's psychic move learned by level is Confusion. The other Pokémon Water/Psychic (for example Staryu or Slowpoke) can learn more psychic moves by level. --Valepert 12:05, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

beats me.-Legopokemonplease

But Still, what other Water Types learn Psychic Moves. Plus I love Psychic Types so the more the merrier! --Asujoll the Psychic Master

Explain why Stantler isn't Psychic or why Venomoth isn't. Both learn more Psychic attacks than Psyduck. They just aren't. There is no real explination other than "Creator made them that way" Xanhawk 23:15 Dec 21, 2008

But look at Psyduck's pokedex entries. You can't tell me those entries aren't describing a psychic type pokemon.Buddy Christ

Is there any reason the Ruby and Sapphire sprite is really thin? Or is my browser messing it up? The Dark Fiddler - Smarter than the average bear! 17:30, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
That's weird. It's displaying thin on mine too. The actual image is 64×64 though. — Laoris (Blah) 17:50, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
It looks wierd on firefox to. Ill check the coding--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))
Actually, quite a few Pokémon have the same problem... I can remember Chansey, Doduo, and Grimer off the top of my head. The Dark Fiddler - Smarter than the average bear! 19:48, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

also REST!

hey, shouldn't it be mentioned that Psyduck also learns the move Rest via Breeding? it hasn't been mentioned in the article....- unsigned comment from Ironcolossus4 (talkcontribs)

Actually, that statement is false. Psyduck learns Rest by TM so if the father of the Psyduck knew rest, the baby Psyduck would too. Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 03:37, 22 December 2009 (UTC)

i swear.... mine learned Rest from a male Grumpig knowing this move... the Female Psyduck which was the mother, didn't know this move at all.... - unsigned comment from Ironcolossus4 (talkcontribs)

The above statement said the father of the Psyduck. Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 16:52, 24 December 2009 (UTC)

New idea for name origin

I think the psy in Psyduck means psycho, not psychic. Mothim will rule all! 20:36, 23 December 2011 (UTC) December 23 2011 3:36 p. m.

I doubt it, seeing as there's really no connection between the Pokemon's behavior and "psycho". Lord Grammaticus 20:39, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
Neither is the Pokémon related to psychic. Psycho means brain, not crazy if you put it in the non-slang way. Mothim will rule all! 23:40, 23 December 2011 (UTC) December 23 2011 6:40 p. m. ET
Perhaps, perhaps not. Lord Grammaticus 20:37, 24 December 2011 (UTC)
I agree with Wildgoose, because Psyduck isn't a Psychic type, I find Psycho to be a more logical origin. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 00:30, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
Hmm, I think that it's not Psycho as in brain, but Psycho as in psychogenic having origin in the mind or in a mental condition or process. Many Dex entries talk about Psyduck's mental state and always having headaches. So I think it's short for the full word psychogenic not just plain psycho. --Pokemaster97 01:13, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
I agree with Pokemaster97. Wildgoose-The friendly goose in town! 01:32, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

Wacan berry?

Generation IV. 6-19-11 Basement of Oreburgh Cave. Caught a Psyduck (lvl. 9). The thing was holding a Wacan Berry. If this can be verified, dibs on editing. It's probably a 5% chance (like with buizel and floatzel) MUST STOP USiNG FRAGMENTS! Dudey997 06:03, 4 February 2012 (UTC)


When it comes to a duck, it's appearance is more based on a "cartoonish" duck than a real one. That's why it has claws, a large bill, and doesn't fly as cartoon ducks are often portrayed having hands, large bills, and don't usually fly like Donald Duck and Daffy Duck.Bennell 14:41, 13 April 2012 (UTC)


How is Psyduck a platypus? It doesn't have a beaver tail or anything like that. It's clear to me that the Pyduck family is based on ducks and kappas, not platypuses. - Ericss (talk) 14:42, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Psyduck's head resembles a platypus' head. --NOBODY (talk) 14:55, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Lake Psyduck being the previous home

What's wrong with saying that Lake Psyduck is the Psyduck's former home? The Psyduck weren't living there while the Muk were there, so it wasn't their home. Not having "previous" or "former" makes out that the Psyduck still own the lake, when we never saw any paperwork so it needs this wording to stop speculating that the Psyduck are the legal owners.ポッチャマ (talk) 17:35, 23 June 2021 (UTC)
