Water is the most numerous type that is characterizable among Pokémon; correlatively, they are the most ubiquitous among Pokémon-trainers and the wild.
Their inhabitance is hydrocentric, meaning that they are predominantly huntable in the water through fishing and surfing; however, a sparser amount of them are also amphibians, allowing them to be captured both in the water and on land as a potential alternative in case one lacks either of the hunting devices needed to encounter them in the water.
The attack-power output of all Water-type moves is enhanced by 50% whenever there is ongoing rain in-battle.
