Goldeen (Japanese: トサキント Tosakinto) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves into Seaking starting at level 33.

Biology

Physiology

Goldeen is a white fish Pokémon with orange markings on its tail, fins and along the top of its body. Goldeen's tail fin is admired by many for its beauty as it billows very much like a ballroom dress. Goldeen has a large horn on its forehead.

Gender differences

A female has a smaller horn.

Special abilities

Goldeen's large and dangerous horn is its main weapon. Although not known as an aggressive Pokémon, people swimming in waters that Goldeen are known to inhabit should be wary of being rammed.

Behavior

Goldeen can be seen swimming upstream in large schools during the breeding season in spring. Goldeen swims at a steady speed of five knots. Goldeen love to frolic and dance in bodies of water and dislike being kept in captivity. A Goldeen in an aquarium will use its powerful horn to smash its way to freedom.

Habitat

Goldeen are a very common sight in any body of fresh water. It is fished up in Kanto, Johto, Hoenn and Sinnoh.

Trophy information

These Water-types are often referred to as "water dancers," as their elegant fins make them incredible agile underwater. They can even travel upstream in rapids at a speed of five knots; of course, they're not quite as nimble on dry land. Goldeen's Horn Drill is so strong that it can KO an enemy with one strike if it connects.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Goldeen will sometimes be found in a Poké Ball and will use Splash when released. It still does nothing to affect the battle. On the official blog, Masahiro Sakurai commented that Goldeen appearing at the most critical of times is in keeping with Murphy's Law. [1]

Trivia

  • Goldeen was originally going to be called "Goldy".
  • Goldeen, as well as Seaking, has been in all regional Pokédexes.
  • Goldeen's number in the Sinnoh Pokédex and the Johto Pokédex is the same: 078. This makes it and its evolution family one of only five families of Pokémon (comprising twelve Pokémon altogether) to have the same numbers in more than one Pokédex-like listing.
  • Goldeen and Seaking are the only two Pokémon that can learn Waterfall through level up.
  • Goldeen has the same in-game cry as Caterpie.

Origin

It seems to be based on a goldfish. The horn part may be based on Matsya, an avatar that the hindu god Vishnu assumed, which is sometimes depicted as a fish with a horn.

Name origin

Goldeen's name may be a combination of goldfish and queen. Its Japanese name stems from とさきん tosakin, a kind of goldfish.
