What type is Whiscash in Pokemon

Whiscash is a dual Water and Ground-type Pokemon. Since it looks like a big catfish, many players might confuse it for a pure Water-type, which can be troublesome.

Players were hoping for a Paldean version of Whiscash in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

All Whiscash weaknesses in Pokemon

As a dual Water and Ground-type Pokemon, Whiscash is weak against Grass-type Attacks.

All Whiscash resistances in Pokemon

Being a dual Water and Ground-type Pokemon, Whiscash can resist Poison, Rock, Steel, and Fire-type attacks. Thanks to its type combination, Whiscash is also immune to Electric-type moves. Keep in mind that this doesn’t apply to Pokemon Go since the mobile game has no immunities in battles.

In summary, the best way to defeat Whiscash is with a Grass-type Pokemon. In case you don’t have one on your team, keep in mind that Whiscash has a huge HP bar you’ll need to deplete. The rest of its Stats are fairly balanced, so you can hit it with both Special and Physical attacks that deal neutral damage.
