Pufferfish in Genshin Impact can easily be identified by their round and short pelvic fins and plump bodies. Players can catch Pufferfish by fishing using Fake Fly Bait in certain spots. The caught Pufferfish can be found either as Wildlife or as a pet for Serenitea Pot.

Furthermore, gamers can exchange these Pufferfish for Ako's Sake Vessel from Inazuma Fishing Association along with Raimei Angelfish and Bitter Pufferfish. Ako's Sake Vessel is the weapon refinement material for The Catch in Genshin Impact.


Pufferfish locations in Genshin Impact and best fishing route

Pufferfish is one of the hardest fish to get in Genshin Impact because of its limited fishing spots, unlike Medaka and Shirakodai. Players can only find Pufferfish in five locations in Teyvat.


1) Cider Lake, Mondstadt

The first location for Pufferfish fishing is in Cider Lake, Mondstadt. Players can teleport to the indicated waypoint in Springvale and head northwest until they see a fishing spot. If the Pufferfish is not in the lake, try fast-forwarding time by 12 hours to change the generation of fish.


2) Dawn Winery, Mondstadt

There is only one fishing spot for Pufferfish in Liyue, on the southeast side of Liyue Harbor. Players need to sprint quite a bit as the location is far from any waypoint.

They can first teleport to the waypoint south of Liyue Harbor. Then head east to the shipping docks. Finally, swim further south and walk until the fishing spot is reached.
