Pokédex entries

Ruby WHISCASH is extremely territorial. Just one of these POKéMON will claim a large pond as its exclusive territory. If a foe approaches it, it thrashes about and triggers a massive earthquake.
Sapphire If WHISCASH goes on a wild rampage, it sets off a quake-like tremor with a radius of over three miles. This POKéMON has the ability to predict real earthquakes.
FireRed
LeafGreen
It makes its nest at the bottom of swamps. It will eat anything - if it is alive, WHISCASH will eat it.
Emerald Mysteriously, it can foretell earthquakes. In the daytime, it sleeps in mud at the bottom of a pond. When it awakens, it continually feeds throughout the night.
Diamond It is very territorial. It repels foes by setting off tremors that extend over a three-mile radius.
Pearl As a result of causing tremors by thrashing about, it developed the ability to foretell real quakes.
Platinum It is extremely protective of its territory. If any foe approaches, it attacks using vicious tremors.

Alpha Sapphire If Whiscash goes on a wild rampage, it sets off a quake-like tremor with a radius of over three miles. This Pokémon has the ability to predict real earthquakes.
Sun A glutton that devours anything that moves, it quietly lurks at the bottom of swamps, lying in wait for prey.
Moon Sighting Whiscash leaping from the water is believed to herald an earthquake.
Ultra Sun Whiscash shakes the ground at high intensities to intimidate its opponents. It swallows its prey whole—along with mud from the swamp floor.
