PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A
0 votes

So I recently saw this thing in my AS game that said Sharpedo surfs faster than all the other surf Pokemon, and I remember when I taught surf to my Wailmer it didn{t show up as a 'shadow' pokémon, so I am wondering how many different types of pokémon variations to surf heir are and which is the best for surfing?

What is this? I answered 2 minutes after the question was asked but it just says that my answer will be checked and approved shortly!

In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Kyogre, Wailmer and Sharpedo all have their own surfing model; additionally, Kyogre moves faster and has a larger hitbox, while Sharpedo moves twice as fast as normal but prevents fishing.

There are only 3:
Sharpedo, Wailmer, and Kyogre.
Sharpedo is 2x faster then any other surfer, but you cant fish ontop of him.
Kyogre moves a bit faster then other surfers.
Wailmer has nothing else special at all.

Technically all pokemon with"Surf" are considered surfers. Wailmer is only part on them because he's recognizable instead of miscellaneous. Kyogre does move faster, but takes up a larger area. Sharpedo is pretty much what you said. You have them right, just not exact details - though the source covers it
"other surfers" implied everyone
