Seadra (Japanese: シードラ Seadra) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves from Horsea starting at level 32 and evolves into Kingdra when traded holding a Dragon Scale.

Contents

Biology

Seadra is a light blue, seahorse-like Pokémon with a cream-colored belly covered in rough scales. It has a long, tubular mouth, narrow, black eyes, a fin-like ridge above each eye, and spiny pectoral fins. It also has a large, coiled tail. It has a pair of dorsal fins with sharp, cream-colored tips that exude venom. Seadra's venom is toxic enough to induce numbness and even fainting in humans, but it is still prized among practitioners of traditional medicine.

Seadra can swim in any direction while facing forward by rapidly flapping its fins and tail. It catches its prey by spinning its body to create large whirlpools. When its prey is exhausted, Seadra swallows it whole using its long snout. Seadra makes its nest by either wriggling between or anchoring itself to branches of coral under the ocean. After a female Seadra gives birth, the male Seadra will take care of the young. It is markedly vicious and will mercilessly attack those who venture near its nest.

Trivia

Origin

Seadra is based on a seahorse, though its ability to shoot ink resembles that of a squid. Its category might be a reference to leafy seadragons, seahorses turning into dragons after a century in Japanese mythology, or the Japanese word for seahorse, which translates as "dragon's child". Its large, spiky, poisonous fins may be inspired by the lion fish.

Name origin

Seadra may be a combination of seahorse and dragon or hydra (a mythological sea creature).
