It evolves into Dragalge starting at level 48.

Biology

Skrelp is a brown aquatic Pokémon that resembles a marine animal similar to a seahorse called a sea dragon. The tip of of Skrelp's tail has three leaf-like fins. Skrelp has a pair of roundish, clear pectoral fins on the sides of its body, a dull purple belly and a blunt spike on its hunched back. Skrelp's face is the same colour as its belly, with an upward-pointing snout and red circular eyes with small black pupils. A clear, roundish growth with a brown stem sticks out on the back of Skrelp's head.

In the anime

Major appearances

Skrelp was set to debut in An Undersea Place to Call Home! alongside its evolution, but due to the sinking of the MV Sewol ferry in South Korea, the episode was postponed.
