Mudkip (Japanese: ミズゴロウ Mizugorou) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves into Marshtomp starting at level 16, which evolves into Swampert starting at level 36.

Along with Treecko and Torchic, Mudkip is one of three starter Pokémon of Hoenn available at the beginning of Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire.

Biology

Mudkip is a small, amphibious, quadrupedal Pokémon. It has a blue body with a light-blue underside. Mudkip has a large head with a blue fin on top and a light-blue tail fin. It has black, beady eyes and orange, star-shaped gills on its cheeks. By using the fin on its head, Mudkip can detect changes in air and water currents as well as bodies of water. Its fin can also point in a certain direction, as seen in the anime. Mudkip is capable of moving or crushing boulders larger than itself. Its large tail fin provides powerful acceleration to propel it through the water.

According to its Pokémon Ranger browser entry, Mudkip is a very docile Pokémon. Mudkip is more commonly found in captivity, though it can be found in swamps and other wetlands. In the wild, it sleeps by burying itself in the soil at the water's edge.

In the beginning, Ruby was disappointed with him because he wasn't as attractive as his other Pokémon and he couldn't participate in any Pokémon Contest. He tried with different conditions and then decided that Tough Contests would be perfect for him. Mumu eventually evolved into a Marshtomp and then into a Swampert.

Origin

Mudkip is based on the mudpuppy or mudskipper, or also possibly an axolotl. As it is the Mud Fish Pokémon, it might also be based on the gilled East African lungfish or the flathead catfish, also known as the mudcat.

Name origin

Mudkip is a combination of mud and skip, or it may be a shortening of mudskipper.

Mizugorou may be a combination of 水 mizu (water) and ムツゴロウ mutsugorō (mudskipper).
