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.

LeafGreen
It makes its nest at the bottom of swamps. It will eat anything - if it is alive, WHISCASH will eat it.

Diamond It is very territorial. It repels foes by setting off tremors that extend over a three-mile radius.
