Pokemon Black and White Pokedex - Oshawott, Dewott, Samurott

#007 Unova / #501 National
Species classification: Sea Otter Pokemon
Ability: Torrent – increases power of Water-type moves by 1.5 if Pokemon has less than 1/3 HP remaining
Dream World ability: Shell Armor – not affected by critical hits
Location found: Unova starter
Egg groups: Ground
Gender ratio: Male 87.5% / Female 12.5%
Effort values: 1 Special Attack
Evolution: Oshawott > Dewott at level 17 > Samurott at level 36

Oshawott, unofficially nicknamed Wotter before its English-language localized name was announced, is a respectable choice this generation. If you're choosing him for his adorable initial otter form, be warned that he goes through a bigger transformation in his final evolution than any of the other starters, and his final form looks more like a samurai sea lion.

    First two evolutions are pretty meh, but I'll be damned if this isn't one of the coolest final evolutions of the starters in every gen.

    He slightly reminds me of Dialga. Seriously? My recaptcha has are100, as in are to the power of 100.

    @losthero15 I chose him because he looks like a digimon. I like about 30% of the new designs, so I'm pretty happy.

    Is it just me or is Samurott look like a digimon?

    Scalchop? Ok... I love the name Oshawott because it's fun to say but its design gets a big too crazy at the end.

    I don't really like Oshawott's first two evolutions, but the final seems well worth it.
