Mudkip (Japanese: ミズゴロウ Mizugorou) is the Water-type Starter Pokémon of the Hoenn region, introduced in Generation III.

Biology

Physiology

Mudkip is a small quadrupedal amphibious Pokémon that resembles mudskippers and axolotls. It is cyan blue in color, with a light blue neck, underbelly and tail. It has a large upright segmented fin atop its head, and large orange cheeks with three pointed whisker-like feelers on each. It has short legs and small paws with three toes on each, and a very large fin-like tail.

Behavior

When sleeping, they bury themselves within the soil at the edge of the water. Mudkip and members of its evolution family dwell in swamps or other wetlands, deep inside isolated islands, due to their dislike of freshwater lakes and ponds.

Natural abilities

The fin on a Mudkip's head can be used for sensing air and water currents, and can discern nearby bodies of water. The fin can sense danger as well, giving Mudkip a warning. Mudkips breathe underwater using the gills on their cheeks, and their powerful tails drive them through the water quickly. Mudkip can lift big boulders. In a pinch, Mudkips will find strength enough to crush even rocks that are bigger than themselves.

Mudkip has the ability Torrent, which will increase the power of Water-type moves in a pinch.

Habitat

Mudkip are born on beaches, and then swim to swamps on remote islands to live. Very few Mudkip are hatched in swamps. Mudkip and its evolutions tend to live in swamps and wetlands because of their dislike of fresh water ponds and lakes. They are an uncommon sight in the wild.

Evolution

Mudkip evolves into Marshtomp at level 16, then into Swampert at level 36.

Appearances

Anime

In the anime, Brock gets a Mudkip after winning the trust of Old Man Swamp, who styles his hair like a Mudkip. In the events leading up to this, Old Man Swamp offers to let Brock see his eggs hatch. Brock agrees, and is treated to the sight of a baby Mudkip hatching.

Later, Brock's Mudkip evolves into a Marshtomp.

Trivia

Mudkip-real-pokemon

Axolotl, the amphibious animal that Mudkip is based on.

  • Mudkip has the highest physical attack of any first evolution starter.
  • Mudkip is the first Water-type starter Pokémon to be based on an Amphibian.

Origin

The concept of Mudkip was based on the mudskipper and a breed of Axolotl.

Etymology

Mudkip's name is likely based on "mudskipper".
