|Oshawott||Mijumaru||501||Water||Dewott (#502)||Black and White||Oshawott is known as the Sea Otter Pokémon. The shell on its belly, known as a scalchop, is made of the same components as fingernails. Strangely, the scalchop has been known to grow from Oshawott's navel. It can detach the scalchop from its body and use it as a blade. It fights using the scalchop as a blade, and can block and attack the foe back in an instant. Dewott's appearance is somewhat similar to Oshawott except that it is primarily light blue in coloration, has white whiskers, and has a blue adornment with two scalchops around its waist. Like Oshawott, these can be detached and used as weapons. With rigorous training, Dewott acquires the ability to perform two-shell attacks with flowing swordsmanship. Unlike its pre-evolutions, Samurott is a quadruped, sea lion-like Pokémon. It can silence its enemies by glaring at them, and it can defeat an opponent by swinging the swords on its armor, known as seamitars.
Oshawott was designed to be the "cute" one of them as well as acting as a "den mother figure" to the other two. Dewott was also the last of the second form of the starters to be designed. In an interview with Ken Sugimori, he stated that they were concerned on what to make Oshawott evolve into. After watching sea otters at a zoo, he decided to make the third evolution based on a sea lion, with Oshawott's shell turned into a sword. He also stated that Oshawott's evolution would be Japanese style of design. He also cited the powerful nature from them such as the "sound they made when they stamped on the ground." Sugimori also intended to design Samurott to be a completely different shape from Oshawott that would aid in making it a "den mother" figure.
