Wooper evolves into Quagsire, while Paldean Wooper evolves into Clodsire, but which of these Wooper evolutions is better in Pokemon GO?

Paldean Wooper, alongside its evolution Clodsire, has arrived in Pokemon GO as part of the November 2023 Community Day. While it is certainly a great addition to the game, it has given players a decision on whether to use their Wooper Candy on Quagsire or Clodsire.

We’ve got a full breakdown of whether Quagsire or Clodsire is better so you can choose which one to invest your hard-earned Candy and Stardust into!

Which Pokemon is Better – Quagsire or Clodsire?

Overall, Clodsire is slightly better than Quagsire in Pokemon GO for the following reasons:

  • Clodsire has higher defense and HP
  • Clodsire has a better selection of charged attacks

Despite this, both Quagsire and Clodsire are strong defensive Pokemon, especially in the Great League.

If you can, we would recommend getting both a Quagsire and a Clodsire up to 1500 CP for the Great League. Fortunately, it only costs 50 Wooper Candy per evolution, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to get both!

Below, we have included the in-game stats and attacks for both Quagsire and Clodsire in Pokemon GO so you can see a more detailed comparison and teach them their most powerful moves!

Stats & Type Comparison


While both are very effective defensive options in Pokemon GO, Clodsire just edges the stats over Quagsire, thanks to its much higher HP.

Despite this, Quagsire is still a good defensive option, as it is much more difficult to counter. This is because its Water/Ground typing gives it just one weakness – a double weakness to Grass.

Therefore, you should really consider your team composition when deciding between Quagsire and Clodsire. Pick Quagsire if you need a Water-type, or opt for Clodsire if you want a bit more defensive stability.
