Mudkip (Japanese: ミズゴロウ Mizugorou) is a Water-type Pokémon. Along with Treecko and Torchic, it is one of three starter Pokémon you can choose from at the beginning of Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Pokémon 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 breathes using the gills on its cheeks. On land, it can powerfully lift large boulders by planting its four feet and heaving. It sleeps by burying itself in soil at the water's edge. Its large tail fin propels it through water with powerful acceleration. If it is faced with a tight situation in battle, Mudkip will become strong enough to crush rocks bigger than itself.

Behavior

Habitat

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 AG148) 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 AG034, 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.

In the TFG

One Mudkip figure has been released.

Sapphire In water, Mudkip breathes using the gills on its cheeks. If it is faced with a tight situation in battle, this Pokémon will unleash its amazing power - it can crush rocks bigger than itself.
Emerald On land, it can powerfully lift large boulders by planting its four feet and heaving. It sleeps by burying itself in soil at the water's edge.

Trivia

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 水心 mizugokoro, swimming. 水子 mizugo, newborn baby, may also be in play. The German name comes from a combination of hydro and mudpuppy.
