With only one weakness, Whiscash can be quite difficult to take down under normal circumstances, but if you use Pokemon and moves that have Grass typing, you should be able to defeat it quite easily.

It should also be pointed out that Whiscash actually has a double weakness (4x damage) to Grass, which makes it incredibly vulnerable to a team of strong Grass-type Pokemon.
