Swampert (Japanese: ラグラージ Laglarge) is a dual-type Water/Ground Pokémon.

It evolves from Marshtomp starting at level 36. It is the final form of Mudkip. It can Mega Evolve into Mega Swampert using the Swampertite.

Biology

Swampert is a bipedal Pokémon. It has a large cobalt blue body and large three-fingered hands. It has two orange gills that protrude from round patches on its cheeks. Its head has two large semicircular black fins that extend from the top of its orange eyes to the back of its head. Its tail fin is big, broad, and black. It has a white underside and orange ridged portions above its hands and three-toed feet.

Swampert is very strong with enough power to easily drag a boulder weighing more than a ton, batter down opponents, and swim faster than a jet ski. It has powerful vision, enabling it to see even in murky water. Swampert also has the ability to predict storms, sensing subtle differences in the sounds of waves and tidal winds with its fins. When a storm is approaching, Swampert will pile up boulders to protect its nest. As its former signature move, Muddy Water is another special capability of this Pokémon. It makes its nests on beautiful beaches.

Major appearances

Swampert first appeared in Abandon Ship!. It evolved from a Marshtomp that was living in an abandoned ship ever since it was separated from its Trainer Tommy. Since then, it has believed that Tommy abandoned him. When Ash and his friends arrived on the abandoned ship and run into Tommy, they started to get slowly captured by Swampert and trapped in the webbing of his Spinarak partner until only Ash, Brock, Tommy, and Pikachu were left. After getting Swampert to remember and tell him that what happened when the ship got caught in the storm wasn't his fault, Tommy ended up reuniting with Swampert.

Morrison introduced his Swampert to Ash and friends in Saved by the Beldum.

Tucker used his Swampert and Arcanine to battle against Ash's Corphish and Swellow in a Double Battle in Tactics Theatrics!!.

A Swampert appeared in Leading a Stray! where it had an antagonistic role.

A Swampert that can Mega Evolve into Mega Swampert appeared in SS031.

Minor appearances

A Swampert was shown under the ownership of Brendan in his cameo appearance in Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea. This is to keep in theme with the games of the rival's starter Pokémon having a type-advantage over the player's starter Pokémon (in this case, May's Blaziken). It is shown battling against Rebecca's Tyranitar.

A Swampert appeared in a flashback in Mutiny in the Bounty! as one of Pokémon Hunter J's captured Pokémon.

A Swampert is used by one of the students of Pokémon Summer Academy in the second leg of the Pokémon Triathlon in One Team, Two Team, Red Team, Blue Team!.

In the manga

Ruby's Swampert, Mumu

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Main article: Mumu

Ruby's Marshtomp evolved into Swampert from its concussive battles throughout the Ruby & Sapphire chapter. With its increased strength and knowledge of the moves Muddy Water and the previously known Earthquake, it proved to be a formidable battler and driving force of the double team of the boy and Sapphire against Maxie and Archie. It also appeared on Ruby's active team in the Emerald chapter, but didn't participate in the battle with Emerald's Sceptile.
