Oshawott (Japanese: ミジュマル Mijumaru) is a Water-type Pokémon.
It evolves into Dewott starting at level 17, which evolves into Samurott starting at level 36.
Along with Snivy and Tepig, Oshawott is one of the starter Pokémon of the Unova region, able to be chosen at the beginning of Pokémon Black and White.
Oshawott is a bipedal sea otter-like Pokémon, primarily light blue, dark blue, and white in coloration. Oshawott has a rounded, spherical white head, with small, triangular dark-blue ears to the sides. Oshawott's eyes are large, dark, and ovoid in shape; its dark-orange nose is shaped like an oval on its side. Oshawott also possesses speckles to the sides of its face, most likely meant to be a stylistic implication of short whiskers in the common manner of cartoon canines, and light blue bubble-esque features composing a "collar" around its neck. Oshawott's torso is light blue, and decorated with a pale yellow seashell feature in the center. Made out of keratin, this appendage, called a "scalchop", can be removed and used in various ways; mainly, as a weapon. Its small, digit-less and somewhat rounded arms are white in coloration, with its feet—having, unlike its forearms, discernible digits—colored dark blue. Oshawott also possesses a slightly plank-shaped dark blue tail and a pair of fangs unseen until it opens its mouth.
It can fight skillfully by detaching the scalchop on its belly. The scalchop can be used for a variety of different things, such as a acting like a sword, shield, and boomerang.
If Oshawott is attacked, it will fight back using its scalchop without any hesitation. When eating, Oshawott uses its forepaws to move food to its mouth. (rather than going down on all fours to eat it)
