Seaking (Japanese: アズマオウ Azumao) is a Water-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Goldeen starting at level 33.

Biology

Seaking is a large, orange, fish-like Pokémon. It has billowing caudal and pectoral fins, all of which are white specked with black. However, its dorsal fin is pure white and rigid. It has round, dark eyes, prominent pink lips, and small fangs, as well as a horn in the center of its forehead. Females have smaller horns than males.

Seaking is a very powerful swimmer that is found in rivers and streams. It can not only swim against a river's current, but can travel up waterfalls. In the autumn spawning season, it travels upriver, where male Seaking, grown fattier and more vibrant in color, engage in elaborate dances to court females. Seaking uses its powerful horn to bore holes in riverbed boulders in order to shelter its Eggs from water currents. A mated pair takes turns patrolling around their new nest for roughly a month, and defends it with their lives.

Seaking's most notable appearance early in Pokémon Adventures was of a failed capture by Yellow, who could not bring herself to hurt the goldfish. A Seaking was seen as one of the Pokémon Crystal captured and sent to Professor Oak via the Portable Transfer System. She remarked that its back is slightly different from others.

A Seaking appeared in The Last Battle XIII as one of the Pokémon sent to help the fight in Ilex Forest.

Much later, a powerful Seaking nicknamed Charles appears as a member of Wallace's team, who used it for various Contests as well as in battles.

Trivia

  • In the Pokémon Red and Blue beta, Seaking's prototype name was "Neptune", after the god of the sea in Roman mythology.
  • Seaking and Goldeen are the only Pokémon that can learn Waterfall through leveling up.
    • Due to this, it is possible to complete any game without finding HM07.
  • Seaking's number in the Sinnoh Pokédex and the Johto Pokédex are the same: 079.
  • In Gold, Silver, and Crystal Versions, it appears that Seaking was originally set to learn Supersonic as one of its three starting moves. However, the game programmers made an error and filled the third data slot with Tail Whip, so Seaking ended up with two starting moves instead.

Origin

It seems to be based on a species of goldfish known as Azuma Nishiki (東錦), bearing a similar coloration to shubunkin goldfish. The horn part may be based on Matsya, an avatar that the Hindu god Vishnu assumed, which is sometimes depicted as a fish with a horn.

Name origin

Seaking is a combination of sea and king. Additionally, it may be a pun on "sinking".

Azumao may be based on 小豆鱒 azukimasu (rock cod) and 魔王 ma-ō (devil king). It may also be taken to literally mean 東王 azuma-ō (east king). Additionally, 東錦 azuma nishiki is a kind of goldfish and could be combined with 王 ou (king), as a compliment to Goldeen's "queenliness".

In other languages

Language Title Meaning
Japan Flag.png Japanese アズマオウ Azumao Probably from 東錦 azuma nishiki and 魔王 ma-ō
France Flag.png French Poissoroy From poisson. Roy is the Old French spelling of roi.
Spain Flag.png Spanish Seaking Same as English name
Germany Flag.png German Golking From Goldfisch and king
Italy Flag.png Italian Seaking Same as English name
South Korea Flag.png Korean 왕콘치 Wangkonchi From wang and 콘치 Konchi
