Brock's Ludicolo.

Trivia

  • In Pokémon: Colosseum during the first battle against Miror. B, he uses all Ludicolo except for one Shadow Sudowoodo.
  • Ludicolo and Shiftry have many similarities:
    • Both share the Grass type.
    • Both have a 50% to be male or female.
    • Both of them come from a 3-stage evolution line.
    • Both of their middle evolutions evolve with stones (Lombre with Water Stone and Nuzleaf with Leaf Stone).
    • Both have the same catch rate (45).
    • Both are in the Grass breeding group.
    • The first part of their evolutions evolve at Level 14.
    • Both are based off of Japanese mythological creatures (Shiftry is a tengu while Ludicolo is a kappa).
    • Both are exclusive to their games (Shiftry is exclusive to Ruby and Ludicolo is exclusive to Sapphire).
  • Its line has some unique attributes.
    • These are its Water/Grass typing, its egg group combination and the fact that Rain Dish is its normal ability as opposed to its hidden ability.
  • Although it is a water type, it can't learn Flip Turn (likely as it lacks the acrobatic prowess to execute the move).


Origin

Ludicolo is likely based on a duck, platypus, kappa, lily pad, and pineapple. Since the structure on its head resembles a sombrero and it likes dancing, it may also be based on Mexican folk dancing.

Etymology

Ludicolo likely comes from "ludicrous," "ridiculous," "piña colada" (a drink made with pineapple juice, hence its shape), and "loco" (Spanish for "crazy", given its erratic dance patterns).

Runpappa likely comes from "rumba" (a genre of Latin American music) and "kappa."
