Golduck (Japanese: ゴルダック Golduck) is a Water-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Psyduck starting at level 33.

Biology

Golduck is a blue, bipedal, duck-like Pokémon. It has red eyes, a cream-colored beak, and four spikes on the back of its head. There is a small, red gem on its forehead. It has webbed hands and feet, which it uses to swim in rivers and lakes. Its body is especially adapted to have a hydrodynamic shape, and it has a long tail that it uses as a rudder to steer.

Golduck is a fast swimmer, out-swimming even the most athletic of humans because of its webbed hands and feet. Even rough seas do not hamper this Pokémon’s swimming abilities, and it will sometimes rescue people from shipwrecks. The gem on its foreheads glows when it uses its psychic powers, and occasionally when it swims at full speed. As shown in the manga, it has the ability to give knowledge to its Trainer and fellow Pokémon through telepathy.

Golduck is sometimes mistaken for the Japanese monster, and physical inspiration for Golduck, the Kappa due to its bluish color, general body shape, and webbed hands and feet. Golduck lives in freshwater lakes and in rivers, though it can be seen occasionally in coastal waters.

In the anime

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Main article: Blue's Golduck

In Pokémon Adventures, in A Tale of Ninetales Blue has a Golduck as one of his main team members. Golduck was shown in Peace of Mime to be able to bypass Mr. Mime's Light Screen over Saffron City by using Confusion to scan the city and channel its visuals to Blue's Pokédex. It used Confusion once again in Growing Out of Gengar to channel Blue's thoughts to the Pokédex.

Golduck was seen again in PS273 during the Double Battle against Red on Two Island. It was heavily damaged by Snor's Earthquake when its plan to use Dig for a surprise attack backfired, knocking it out. It is then healed and seen in Trainer Tower and later uses a powerful Hydro Pump alongside Blasty, Rhydon, and Silver's Pokémon to try to stop the TR Airship from crashing in Vermilion City.

A Golduck was one of the Pokémon sent to help the fight in Ilex Forest in The Last Battle XIII.

Trivia

  • Golduck is one of the few Pokémon obtainable in every core series game.

Origin

Golduck's appearance has aspects of a duck, platypus, and kappa.

Name origin

Golduck may be a combination of gold and duck. While Golduck itself is not colored gold, gold is often used in the Pokémon canon to symbolize the Psychic type: the Gold Gummi is the Gummi variety loved by Psychic-type Pokémon, and the Marsh Badge's Japanese name is "Gold Badge".
