54 – Platyduck

  • Although it looks like Psyduck, it’s a different species. Instead of psychic powers, it possesses a powerful tail to help it swim in the murky waters.
  • Because of its similarities to Psyduck, researchers originally thought this Pokémon was a prank by early settlers covering a Psyduck in Bidoof pelts.
