Swampert is a large amphibian-like creature with a primarily cobalt-blue body and four limbs, including two long forelimbs and short, thickset back legs. Swampert is nominally bipedal, able to stand on its three-toed feet, but on land, it generally assumes a posture crouched over on all fours. It has orange conical gills that protrude from round patches on either side of its face. Two large fan-like black fins extend from the top of its orange eyes to the back of its head. Similarly, a black fan-like tail fin extends upward from its tail-end. Swampert has a white underside as well as orange ridged padding on its forearms and thighs.
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 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’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 articulations. According to the 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.
Swampert debuted in Abandon Ship!, under the ownership of Tommy. It evolved from a Marshtomp that was living in an abandoned ship ever since it was separated from Tommy. Since then, it believed that Tommy had abandoned it. When Ash and his friends arrived on the abandoned ship and ran into Tommy, they started to get captured by Swampert one by one and trapped in the webbing of its Spinarak partner until only Ash, Brock, Tommy, and Pikachu were left. After getting Swampert to remember him, and informing it that it wasn't abandoned after all, Tommy ended up reuniting with Swampert.
A Swampert appeared in Leading a Stray!, where it aggressively tried to defend its territory during Ash and his friends' efforts to help a Wailmer trapped in the sewers. It was eventually defeated by Ash's Grotle.
Swampert, the Mud Fish Pokémon. Swampert is the evolved form of Marshtomp. It is able to easily drag large stone weighing over 1 ton. It is also able to see through cloudy waters and detect approaching storms with its fin.
