When it comes to finding the best fish Pokémon there is no shortage of great candidates. However, one stand out amongst the rest is Remoraid. This little fish Pokémon has a lot to offer trainers looking for a versatile pokemon partner.

In addition to its offensive capabilities, Remoraid can also learn a variety of support moves, such as Haze and Mist. This makes it an ideal candidate for both offensive and defensive teams.

Perhaps the biggest selling point of Remoraid is its ability to evolve into Octillery. Octillery is a massive step up in power from Remoraid, and gains access to water type moves. It can also learn several unique moves, such as Octazooka and Gunk Shot, that make it a force to be reckoned with in battle.

Stats-wise, Remoraid is not very impressive. Its base stats are all average, except for its Special Attack, which is below average. However, Remoraid does have one unique stat: its base Speed stat is tied with Magikarp for the lowest in the game. As a result, Remoraid is often outspent and outclassed by other Pokémon.

Ability-wise, Remoraid has two possible abilities: Swift Swim and Sniper. Swift Swim doubles Remoraid’s Speed stat in rainy weather conditions; however, this boost is negated if the sun comes out or if Remoraid is hit with a water-type move. Sniper increases the power of critical hits by 1.5x.

10. Seaking


Seaking is just such a graceful swimmer. It evolves from Goldeen starting at level 33. This fish Pokémon is a large, orange koi fish with white fins. Both its pectoral and tail fins are flapped like fans when it swims.

This beautiful blue fish Pokémon is based on the targets of light that often decorate the ceilings of oceans (known as bioluminescent organisms).

17. Whiscash


Not only Whiscash is a versatile fighter, but it’s also just so darn cool looking. I love its big blue body and long whiskers, and the way it drifts lazily through the water. Plus, it’s based on a real-life fish – the Australian freshwater catfish – which makes it even more awesome in my book.

When Whiscash senses vibrations in the water, they swim to the source to investigate. It is known to create earthquakes by thrashing about in mud pools.

18. Carvanha


Carvanha is another fantastic fish Pokémon. It may not be as big or strong as Whiscash, but it more than makes up for that with its ferocity. This little guy is always ready for a fight, and its razor-sharp teeth can do some serious damage. Definitely not one to underestimate!

19. Barraskewda


Barraskewda is a fish Pokémon that first appeared in the Sword & Shield expansion of the Pokémon Trading Card Game. It is a Water-type with the ability Swift Swim. Its name is a combination of barracuda and skewer.

Barraskewda has a base attack of 115, making it tied for the second strongest unevolved Water-type Pokémon, behind only Gyarados. It also has a base defense of 60 and a base speed of 100, giving it good overall stats. However, its low HP stat of 65 means that it can be easily taken down by strong attacks.

Barraskewda’s main strength lies in its attacks. It has two Water-type moves in Aqua Jet and Liquidation, which are both able to take down most foes with ease. Additionally, Barraskewda can learn Close Combat, giving it the ability to take down even the toughest opponents.

20. Magikarp

fish pokemon

If you’re a fan of the Pokémon anime, then you’ve probably seen a Magikarp before. This little fish Pokémon is known for its low stats and lack of speed. In the anime, Ash Ketchum’s Pikachu is able to defeat a Magikarp with ease.

However, don’t let its weak appearance fool you. Magikarp is actually a pretty tough Pokémon. It has a high HP stat, meaning it can take quite a few hits before going down.

Wishiwashi’s transformation when it enters battle is really impressive. It’s a small and unassuming fish Pokémon at first, but once it evolves into its School Form it becomes a massive, intimidating force to be reckoned with.

Wishiwashi is able to change its form in battle by using Ability Schooling. When its health reaches 25% or below, it will undergo a radical transformation into a much larger form called School Form. In this form, Wishiwashi’s Attack and Defence stats are doubled, and it becomes immune to all Status Conditions. However, Wishiwashi reverts back to its original form when it faints or if its health is restored above 25%.

Wishiwashi is mostly found in areas with clean water, such as lakes and rivers. It is a timid Pokémon that hides behind rocks when faced with predators. When schooled together, Wishiwashi can stand up to even the most fearsome foes.

25. Eelektross


Eelektross is just such a cool and weird-looking electric eel Pokémon! a dual-type Electric/Poison fish Pokémon introduced in Generation V. It evolves from Eelektrik starting at level 39. It is the final form of Tynamo.

Its arms and tail are long and thin, and it has four black fins on its back. Each of its hands has three yellow claws. It has red eyes and a large mouth with sharp teeth.

Stats-wise, Eelektross is fairly balanced, with good Attack, Defence, Special Attack, Special Defence, and HP stats. However, its Speed stat is rather low, which can be a liability in battle. Thankfully, its strong electric attacks more than makeup for this shortcoming.

Eelektross’s electric attacks are some of the strongest in the game; it can learn moves like Thunder Wave and Thunderbolt that can easily take down even the stoutest of foes. Additionally, its Poison typing gives it access to moves like Toxic that can wear down an opponent over time. Overall, Eelektross is a versatile and dangerous Pokémon that should not be underestimated!

26. Skrelp


Skrelp is a Poison/Water fish Pokémon that can learn both Surf and Strength, making it a versatile addition to any team.

It resembles a poison dart frog. It has dark green skin with yellow spots and a long, thin tongue that it uses to catch prey. Skrelps are fairly weak fish Pokémon, but they make up for this with their speed and agility. They are also very difficult to hit, due to their small size. Skrelp is mostly found in swamps and marshes, where they hunt for insects and other small prey.

Skrelp has two main attacks – Poison Sting and Sludge Bomb. Poison Sting is a weak physical attack that can poison the target, while Sludge Bomb is a strong special attack that may also poison the target.
