Water type Pokémon are one of the most popular types of Pokémon introduced in the series so far. It’s also one of the three starter types along with fire-type and grass-type!

These Pokémon are pretty powerful and have a pretty high defense, but they are generally weaker to electric-type and grass-type moves.
