Before you’re able to catch any water dwelling Pokemon, you must progress through the main story to the third area, Cobalt Coastlands. The story quest chain in this area will eventually give you a Pokemon that you can use to ride on water. Once you have this Pokemon you can automatically summon in whenever your character hits water. This allows you to explore areas that were previously unavailable. Once you have this Pokemon you can ride it and whilst riding on the water, you’re able to find water dwelling Pokemon.

Blaine "Captain Camper" Smith is one of the original founders of Gamers Heroes. Now operating under the guise of Editor-in-Chief (purely because we felt the position was needed for public relations purposes), he's tasked with a lot of the kind of jobs that would put you to sleep at your desk.
