Oshawott

Intro Trivia Edit

  • Oshawott is the Water starter from Unova.
  • While Oshawott and Dewott are based off of Sea Otters, Samurott is based off of a Sea Lion.
  • This happened because the design were having trouble thinking of evoutions for Oshawott. After seeing some Sea Lions at an aquarium, they decided to base the final evolution on them.
  • To tie together the line, they gave them a Samurai motif, giving each line a weapon, and a bit of Samurai flair
  • These weapons are made of the same materials as Oshawott's claws, being Keratin.
  • Oshawott uses a sharp scalchop as a weapon, resembling a Japanese Tessen, which is a war-fan.
  • Japanese soldiers often times brought fans to keep themselves cool. Someone then came up with the idea to equip them with iron braces to make them sharp and deadly, while still concealing the weapon

Pokemon Etymology Edit

Pokemon Etymology - Oshawott
  • On the surface, it appears Oshawott's name is a combination of "Ocean", "Shell", "Water", and "Otter".
  • Its name could also be a reference to the city of Oshawa in Canada, a country that has many protective laws for Sea Otters.
  • It could also draw from the Ojibiwa word "aazhaway", meaning crossing, which usually refers to a river or stream.
  • It could also reference George Oshawa, a Japanese dietitian born into a Samurai family
