What is Quagsire weak against in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl?

It feels like it's immune to everything.

It’s no secret that many trainers hate Quagsire—but only when they’re on the opposing team. It doesn’t matter if you’ve encountered them on a random Ace Trainer or Elite Four Bertha. They’re tanky, immune to water attacks, and can learn Earthquake. But don’t worry, there are a couple of ways to deal with this salamander-fish hybrid.

Quagsire is weak to one type: Grass. Having Torterra as your starter or a Roserade on your team will let you KO this Pokémon in one hit. If you don’t have a Grass-type, get a Pokémon who can learn a Grass-type move, like Gardevoir, through TMs. TM86 Grass Knot, which you received from Gym Leader Gardenia, is useful in this regard.

If you neither want a Grass Type nor a Pokémon who knows a grass move on your team, know that most Pokémon can defeat Quagsire in two to three hits. Just make sure they’re not vulnerable to Water and Ground moves (read: don’t use Infernape and Empoleon). Unless you meet Quagsire in the Battle Tower, you can also grind EXP and win against it with sheer power.
