In the manga
Swampert boasts the physical strength to easily drag a boulder weighing more than a ton, batter down opponents, and swim faster than a jet ski. It has keen eyesight, enabling it to see in murky waters. Swampert also has the ability to predict storms, sensing subtle differences in the sounds of waves and tidal winds with its fins. When a storm is approaching, Swampert will pile up boulders to protect its nest. It makes its nests on {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Water's-edge Pokémon|beautiful beaches}}.
 
As Mega Swampert, this Pokémon gains considerable bulk. Its upper body and arms become more muscular, bulging compared to its squat lower body. The orange padding on Swampert's thighs vanish, but it gains two additional patches of orange padding on each wrist and another patch on each shoulder. This padding and its gills become a darker, redder shade of orange, while the gills are now larger and bulbous, with filaments extending past its mouth. The black fins on its head are thicker and now extend down past its shoulders. The black tail fin is still shaped like an upward-turned fan, but it now forms a short ridge that extends up to this Pokémon’sPokémon's forehead, flanked on either side by the aforementioned head-fins. The digits on Mega Swampert's "hands" take on a black color and now feature better defined {{wp|Joints of hand|articulations}}. According to the [[XY043|anime]], Mega Swampert fills the organs on its back with air before diving underwater or battling; it uses that pressure to increase the power of its punches.
