Walrein (Japanese: トドゼルガ Todoseruga) is a dual-type Ice/Water Pokémon.

It evolves from Sealeo starting at level 44. It is the final form of Spheal.

Biology

Physiology

Walrein is a large, blubbery pinniped-like Pokémon, primarily blue in coloration with white accentuations. Walrein has two long, ivory tusks, which it uses extensively to break ice and fight other Walrein. Its head is also white, with a round, somewhat pig-like blue nose, yellow eyes and large, white whiskers about its face and neck. Walrein has two thin white stripes around its neck as well, four flippered feet and a fan-shaped tail.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Walrein and its evolution family, Spheal and Sealeo, are the only known Pokémon that can learn Ice Ball.

Walrein are very strong and hardy. Their tough tusks can break through the thickest and heaviest ice.

Behavior

Walrein live in large groups near the shore with their pre-evolved forms. These groups are always led by the largest male Walrein who acts as the beachmaster. Fighting for dominance among males can get pretty fierce, and many are the male Walrein who bear scars from challenging the beachmaster and losing.

Habitat

Walrein live in the arctic seas.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Walrein most likely hunt for food underwater, like Sealeo.

In the anime

Walrein in the anime

Major appearances

A Walrein appeared in Training Wrecks, under the ownership of Rocky. Walrein battled Ash's Pikachu and Grovyle, alongside a Quagsire. Before Grovyle could attack Quagsire with its Leaf Blade Walrein attacked Grovyle with its Ice Ball. Pikachu defeated Walrein in the end while Grovyle took care of Quagsire.

Walrein was Katie's final Pokémon while battling Ash in A Judgment Brawl. The Ice Break Pokémon defeated Ash's Swellow, and Corphish (the latter was already tired out from battling Katie's Golduck), and was defeated by Ash's Grovyle.

Minor appearances

Walrein made its debut under the ownership of Team Aqua in Fight for the Meteorite!. They also appeared later in The Scuffle of Legends.

A large group of Spheal, Sealeo and Walrein are seen at the beginning of Destiny Deoxys.

Multiple Walrein made brief cameo appearances in Giratina and the Sky Warrior.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Walrein first appears in VS. Walrein. It was used by Archie to battle against Maxie, and later when ironically fighting alongside the Magma Leader against Ruby and Sapphire, though they are able to exploit the two leader's weakness of taking little notice of each other's presence and easily win. A few more volumes later, in the climax of the Ruby & Sapphire chapter, Archie sends out several more Walrein alongside Maxie's multiple Houndoom to buy time for the two to escape, but are thwarted.

Much later, under the guise of Guile Hideout, the same Team Aqua leader sends out a Walrein that is easily beaten by Poli alongside his Masquerain (beaten by Polibo).

Trivia

  • Walrein's evolution line, along with Dewgong, are the only Pokémon to have a "triple resistance", thanks to the Thick Fat Ability.
  • Walrein's evolution line are the only Pokémon with the Water/Ice combination to have Ice as its primary type.

Origin

Walrein is based on a walrus.

Name origin

Walrein may be a combination of walrus and a misspelling of rain or reign.

Todoseruga may be a combination of 海馬 todo (sea lion) and 海象 seiuchi (walrus).
