The Water type is one of the 18 Pokémon elemental types. It is one of the 3 main types, along with Fire and Grass, because all Starter Pokémon belong to one of these 3 types. It is also the most common type among all of the 802 Pokémon, reflecting the abundance of water on the Earth's surface. Water-type attacks are super effective against Fire, Rock and Ground, but are weak to Electric and Grass. However, most Water-type Pokémon can learn Ice-type attacks to cover their weakness to Grass-type Pokémon.

Water-type Pokémon are widely used because of their mostly balanced stats, as well as the fact that HM3 Surf must be used in order to complete the game. Rosecove Gym Leader Quentin specializes in Water-type Pokémon.
