Swampert (Japanese: ラグラージ Laglarge) is a dual-type Water/Ground Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves from Marshtomp starting at level 36. It is the final form of Mudkip. It can Mega Evolve into Mega Swampert using the Swampertite.

Biology

Swampert is a bipedal Pokémon. It has a large cobalt blue body and large three-fingered hands. It has two orange gills that protrude from round patches on its cheeks. Its head has two large semicircular black fins that extend from the top of its orange eyes to the back of its head. Its tail fin is big, broad, and black. It has a white underside and orange ridged portions above its hands and three-toed feet.

Swampert is very strong with enough power to easily drag a boulder weighing more than a ton, batter down opponents, and swim faster than a jet ski. It has powerful vision, enabling it to see even in murky water. 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 are more muscular, while its lower body is smaller in comparison. The raised patches above its feet vanish, but it gains two additional ones on each wrist and one on each shoulder. The bumps and its gills become a darker, redder shade of orange, and the gills are now larger and extend slightly past its mouth. The black fins on its head are shorter, more streamlined, and extend down past its shoulders. The tail fin now forms a short ridge that extends up to this Pokémon’s forehead. Mega Swampert's fingers and toes are more defined, and its fingers turn black. 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 punch.

Major appearances

Swampert first appeared in Abandon Ship!. It evolved from a Marshtomp that was living in an abandoned ship ever since it was separated from its Trainer Tommy. Since then, it has believed that Tommy abandoned him. When Ash and his friends arrived on the abandoned ship and run into Tommy, they started to get slowly captured by Swampert and trapped in the webbing of his Spinarak partner until only Ash, Brock, Tommy, and Pikachu were left. After getting Swampert to remember and tell him that what happened when the ship got caught in the storm wasn't his fault, Tommy ended up reuniting with Swampert.

Morrison introduced his Swampert to Ash and friends in Saved by the Beldum. Morrison used his Swampert in a battle against Ash's Corphish which resulted in a tie.

Tucker used his Swampert and Arcanine to battle against Ash's Corphish and Swellow in a Double Battle in Tactics Theatrics!!.

A Swampert appeared in Leading a Stray! where it had an antagonistic role. It was defeated by Ash's Grotle.

A Swampert that can Mega Evolve appeared in Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel, under the control of Levi and Cherie's Mega Wave. Swampert was used to battled against Ash's Pikachu, Talonflame and Clemont's Chespin. It was later freed from Levi's control when Alva's Mega Wave Crystal was destroyed and escaped.

Minor appearances

A Swampert was shown under the ownership of Brendan in his cameo appearance in Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea. This is to keep in theme with the games of the rival's starter Pokémon having a type-advantage over the player's starter Pokémon (in this case, May's Blaziken). It is shown battling against Rebecca's Tyranitar.

A Trainer's Swampert appeared in Like a Meowth to a Flame.

A Swampert appeared in a flashback in Mutiny in the Bounty! as one of Pokémon Hunter J's captured Pokémon.

A Swampert is used by one of the students of Pokémon Summer Academy in the second leg of the Pokémon Triathlon in One Team, Two Team, Red Team, Blue Team!.

A Swampert that can Mega Evolve into Mega Swampert appeared in Mega Evolution Special II.

Ruby's Marshtomp evolved into Swampert in Master Class with Masquerain from his concussive battles throughout the Ruby & Sapphire chapter. With his increased strength and knowledge of the moves Muddy Water and the previously known Earthquake, he proved to be a formidable battler and driving force of the double team of the boy and Sapphire against Maxie and Archie. He also appeared on Ruby's active team in the Emerald chapter, but didn't participate in the battle with Emerald's Sceptile. In the Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire chapter, he has obtained a Swampertite, with it he can Mega Evolve into Mega Swampert.

Trivia

  • Mega Swampert has the highest base stat total of all fully evolved starter Pokémon.
  • Swampert and its pre-evolution Marshtomp are the only starter Pokémon to have a 4× weakness against another starter type.
  • Swampert has the fewest weaknesses of any starter.

Origin

Like Mudkip and Marshtomp, Swampert is based on the mudpuppy, axolotl, mudskipper or possibly the gilled African lungfish.

Name origin

Swampert may be a combination of swamp and rampart or expert, or a corruption of the word earth.

Laglarge may be a combination of lagoon and large (referring to its size). It may also involve lag, as in "to lag behind," due to its size and weight.
