Whiscash (ナマズン) is the 128th Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Water/Ground-Type, and it is known as the Whiskers Pokémon.

Whiscash can use one of two Abilities; Oblivious, which prevents it from becoming Infatuated with an opposing Pokémon of the opposite gender, or Anticipation, which alerts itself to when the opponent knows an attack that will be Super-Effective against it, or if the foe knows one of the four One-Hit KO moves. Its Hidden Ability is Hydration, which heals all Status problems when it is raining.

Barboach can evolve into Whiscash once it reaches Level 30.

Whiscash is listed in the Water 2 Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Whiscash One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.

Anime/Manga Information

Anime

A Wild Wishcash that had grown to ginormous proportions was featured in the episode Whiscash and Ash. The Giant Whiscash tried to eat Ash's Hoenn Gym Badges, only to eat something else towards the end of the episode: the Master Ball, thrown at the Wishcash by the Master Fisherman.

Juan used a Whiscash in a Gym Battle against Ash in the Episode Eight Ain't Enough. It defeated Corphish but was defeated by Swellow.

Movies

Another Trainer used a Whiscash in the film Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea, the only appearance in the films thus far for Whiscash.

Manga

Whiscash's Manga info is unknown at this time.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Whiscash finds itself in the PU Tier of Competitive Battling. Its Hidden Ability Hydration gives it more longevity with Rain Dance support from either a teammate or itself, especially combined with Rest. Additionally, it can use Dragon Dance to boost both its Attack and Speed to dangerous levels.

Without Statistic boosts, Whiscash still has bulk to deal with, but can be dealt with relatively easily by using a Grass-Type attack, which it takes 4 times the damage from. Also, eliminating the rain with another weather condition or using a Pokémon with the Cloud Nine Ability will take its Hidden Ability out of play.
