Skrelp (クズモー Kuzumoo) is a Poison/Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

Biology

Physiology

Skrelp is a brown aquatic Pokémon that resembles a marine animal similar to a seahorse called a leafy sea dragon. The tip of Skrelp's tail has three leaf-like fins. Skrelp has a pair of roundish, blue pectoral fins on the sides of its body, a purple belly and a blunt spike on its hunched back. Skrelp's face is the same color as its belly, with an upward-pointing snout and circular red eyes with small black pupils. A roundish blue growth with a brown stem sticks out on the back of Skrelp's head. It somewhat resembles Horsea in body shape.

Evolution

Skrelp evolves into Dragalge starting at level 48.

  • Omega Ruby

    Camouflaged as rotten kelp, they spray liquid poison on prey that approaches unawares and then finish it off.

  • Alpha Sapphire

    It looks just like rotten kelp. It hides from foes while storing up power for its evolution.

  • Ultra Sun

    It vanishes into seaweed and remains perfectly still to avoid attacks from large Pokémon. Rotten seaweed is its main food source.

  • Ultra Moon

    It’s not good at swimming, so it clings to the seaweed. In the Alola region, it’s often found near Dhelmise.

  • Sword

    It drifts in the ocean, blending in with floating seaweed. When other Pokémon come to feast on the seaweed, Skrelp feasts on them instead.

  • Shield

    Skrelp looks like a piece of rotten seaweed, so it can blend in with seaweed drifting on the ocean and avoid being detected by enemies.
