Mudkip (Japanese: ミズゴロウ Mizugorou) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon. Along with Treecko and Torchic, it is one of three starter Pokémon that can be chosen at the beginning of Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald.

Mudkip comes with the ability Torrent, which increases the power of Water-type attacks by 50% once the Pokémon has less than one-third of its maximum HP.

Biology

Physiology

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Mudkip can use the fin on their heads to detect subtle changes in air and water currents to sense information about its surroundings. When in water, Mudkip breathe using the gills on their cheeks. On land, they can powerfully lift large boulders by planting their four feet and heaving. They sleep by burying themselves in soil at the water's edge. Their large tail fin propels them through water with powerful acceleration. If they are faced with a tight situation in battle, Mudkip will become strong enough to crush rocks bigger than themselves.

Behavior

Mudkip's are more mellow than their evolutions, but are protective of thier kind and because of thier powerful strength they group up in numbers and easy overpower thier foes.

Habitat

Mudkip and members of its evolution family dwell in swamps or other wetlands, deep inside isolated islands, because of their dislike of fresh water lakes, pounds, etc soon after birth on beautiful beaches they swim to swamps deep in islands, very few have been known to hatch in swamps.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

In the anime

Brock has a Marshtomp that he caught as a Mudkip in A Mudkip Mission. Since then, it has gotten significantly less screentime (and battle experience) than its Hoenn starter counterparts, Ash's Sceptile and May's Blaziken. It was the last of the three starters to evolve (in A Chip Off the Old Brock) and it never reached its final evolutionary stage like the others did.

Nicholai's starter Pokémon was a Mudkip. Sometime afterwards, his Mudkip evolved into a Marshtomp.

During Having a Wailord of a Time, Nurse Joy asks Ash and Max to look over a Treecko, Torchic, and Mudkip while May was practicing for the upcoming Pokémon Contest. The Mudkip of this group was very young and cried easily.

Mudkip eggs were seen in A Mudkip Mission, when Old Man Swampy offered to let Brock see one hatch, and Brock accepts his offer with much enthusiasm. Next, a baby Mudkip is shown hatching from a Mudkip egg.

Trivia

File:AG005.jpg
Nicholai dressed up as a Mudkip.
  • Mudkip is the only Template:Type2 starter to be quadrupedal, though its evolutions Marshtomp and Swampert are able to walk on either two or four feet.
  • Mudkip is a frequently-mentioned meme on *chan sites, stemming from a comment on deviantART in which one user declared to another " so i herd u liek mudkips?". In addition many people frequently say they "need MOAR [sic] mudkipz". As an April Fool's joke on April 1st, 2008, all deviantART members' avatars were temporarily replaced with an animation of Mudkip and the phrase "So i herd u liek mudkips??."
  • Mudkip has the highest Attack out of all the starters at base form.
  • In a poll conducted by Nintendo of Europe, Mudkip was voted as the fan favorite, with Typhlosion and Blastoise close behind. This may have been due to the aforementioned meme.
  • GameFAQs's sixth annual Character Battle has Mudkip as one of the characters in it, the inclusion most likely being because of the *chan meme.

Origin

This Pokémon is based on the mudpuppy.

Name origin

Mudkip's name is a combination of mud and skip, and was probably chosen because it sounds like mudskipper. Its Japanese name is probably based on 水 mizu, "water," and ムツゴロウ mutsugorō, "mudskipper."

In other languages

  • German: Hydropi - Comes from a combination of hydro and mudpuppy.
  • French: Gobou - The verb gober means to swallow and boue means mud.
  • Korean: 물짱이 Muljjang-i - A combination of 'water' (물) and a word that is similar to a suffix referring to a 'specialist', 'professional' (장이).
