Both are quite similar in several aspects. So much clodsire What Quagsire they reach this evolution when they reach level 20 and have the same Ground type, as well as total stats of 430 and the ability Absorb Water. This ability makes them immune to Water-type moves and even makes them recover health points. They also share the hidden ability Ignorant, which causes it to ignore any changes to the opponent’s evasion, defense and special defense. Very useful and effective skills.
Nevertheless, Quagsire It has been used more in the competitive in the previous generations. Secondly, clodsire It has hardly been used in Series 1 of Pokemon VGC of Scarlet and Purple. Quagsire has served as a barrier in competitive against those Pokemon that used movements that increased their statistics, all thanks to their ability Ignorant, but also for the attack Scald (Water) that he could learn by TM; in this way, it reduced the opponent’s attack. However, it is a movement that is no longer available for this Pokemon in this ninth generation.
While is true that clodsire has a special defense and higher hit points than Quagsire -although Quagsire also has a higher defense-, the regional form of Paldea loses on the offensive part.
