Lotad (Japanese: ハスボー Hassboh) is a dual-type Water/Grass Pokémon.

It evolves into Lombre starting at level 14, which evolves into Ludicolo when exposed to a Water Stone.

Biology

Lotad is a small blue Pokémon with a yellow bill-like mouth and six small blue legs. It appears to have a lilypad on its back. It is believed that when a Lotad's leaf becomes too big, it starts to float on the water. However, if Lotad does not drink water for too long, the leaf on its head wilts. Lotad is able to float into the middle of ponds and lakes and photosynthesize food for itself without direct competition from others. Lotad is usually quite placid and easygoing. It can also serve as ferries for smaller Pokémon that can't swim. On rare occasions, it travels on land in search of clean water.

Trivia

Origin

Lotad seems to be a literal example of a lily pad. Given its general shape and habitat, it may have also been partially inspired by a tardigrade.

Name origin

Lotad is a combination of lotus and tadpole or lily pad.

Hassboh is based on 蓮 hasu (lotus) and 赤ん坊 akanbō (baby) or 帽子 bōshi (hat).
