Kingdra (Japanese: キングドラ Kingdra) is a dual-type Water/Dragon Pokémon. It evolves from Seadra.

Biology

Physiology

Kingdra is a larger, more elegant version of Seadra. It has beautiful fins that wave in the water as it swims. Its head has a crest-like fin along its cheeks. Sometimes, a Kingdra leads a herd of Horsea and Seadra and protects it from danger. Its belly scales are now more compact, unlike Seadra. The snout has also become thinner but more powerful in squirting water jets in devastating power.

Gender differences

None.

In the manga

Silver's Seadra evolved into Kingdra when he traded it to Gold for Poliwhirl, which also evolved. The two then traded back, so that each would have his original, though evolved, Pokémon.
