What type is Quagsire in Pokemon?

Quagsire was introduced in the Pokemon Gold and Silver games.

As a dual Water and Ground-type Pokemon, Quagsire is only weak to Grass-type attacks. While it doesn’t sound like a lot, keep in mind that it’s a double weakness (x4) because both Ground-type and Water-type Pokemon are weak against Grass-type moves.

All Quagsire resistances in Pokemon

As a dual Water and Ground-type Pokemon, Quagsire can resist Poison, Rock, Steel, and Fire-type attacks. In mainline games, it’s also immune to Electric-type moves. Since Pokemon Go doesn’t work with immunities, Electric-type moves are resisted by Quagsire in the mobile game.

It’s important to note that in mainline games, Quagsire can have the Water Absorb Ability that makes it immune to Water-type attacks as well.

In conclusion, Quagsire can be a tough challenge for any trainer without a Grass-type Pokemon in their team. Its huge HP bar and high Defense Stat can be intimidating, but as long as trainers stick to neutral Special damage and avoid resisted types, victory is guaranteed.
