The top of its body is a bluish color, while its underbelly is a pale cream color. Qwilfish has large pink lips. Its height is 1'08" and weight is 8.6 lbs.

Special abilitiesEdit

The spines that cover its body are filled with a toxin which is known to cause fainting. It is able to fire these spines from its body by swallowing large amounts of water. This ability also makes this Pokémon appear bigger than it actually is, making it less vulnerable to predator attacks.


When faced with a larger opponent, Qwilfish swallows as much water as it can to match the opponent's size. Qwilfish also finds swimming somewhat challenging, due to its round form.


Qwilfish lives in a marine environment.
