Brock obtained Marshtomp as a Mudkip in ''[[AG025|A Mudkip Mission]]''. Mudkip lived at a pond on [[Dewford Town|Dewford Island]] where Mudkip were {{pkmn|breeding|bred}} for the [[Pokémon League]]. These Mudkip were to be distributed to beginning {{pkmn|Trainer}}s as [[starter Pokémon]] when they got large enough. However, the Mudkip that Brock caught was already mature and it acted as a guardian of the younger and smaller Mudkip. [[Old Man Swamp]], the owner of the pond, felt that the Pokémon League would not want to give a grown-up Mudkip to a beginning Trainer. Brock eventually befriended it after a few failed attempts. Later, Mudkip, Brock, and Brock's other Pokémon, {{TP|Brock|Forretress}} and {{TP|Brock|Lotad}}, had to rescue a baby Mudkip from falling over a waterfall. They managed to save it, but right after the ordeal they were attacked by {{TRT}}. All of the Mudkip and Brock's Lotad used Water Gun on the ground around the mecha to make it sink into the ground, and [[Ash's Pikachu]] finished the job with {{m|Thunderbolt}}. Old Man Swamp later suggested that Mudkip go with Brock, to which it happily agreed.

In the anime

History

Mudkip's debut appearance

Hoenn

Brock obtained Marshtomp as a Mudkip in A Mudkip Mission. Mudkip was a wild Pokémon, though it frequented Old Man Swamp's Dewford Island property where he raised Mudkip for the Pokémon League. It tended to act as a guardian for the young Mudkip and was noticebly larger. Old Man Swamp feared that Mudkip would eventually become lonely once all of the hatchling were sent out to the new Trainers. Brock eventually befriended it after a few failed attempts. Later, Mudkip, Brock, and Brock's other Pokémon, Forretress and Lotad, had to rescue a baby Mudkip from falling over a waterfall. They managed to save it, but right after the ordeal they were attacked by Team Rocket. Mudkip and Brock's Lotad used Water Gun on the ground around the mecha to make it sink into the ground, and Ash's Pikachu finished the job with Thunderbolt. Old Man Swamp later suggested that Mudkip go with Brock, to which it happily agreed.

During the group's journey through Hoenn, Mudkip was usually seen alongside Brock's Lombre. The two were often called out to use a dual-Water Gun attack.

As a Mudkip

In Turning Over a Nuzleaf!, Mudkip, along with Pikachu, Treecko, Corphish, Torchic, Silcoon, and Lotad, were separated from the group after a Loudred attacked them. Mudkip and Pikachu attempted to lead the group of Pokémon as they searched for their Trainers. However, a group of Nuzleaf began to capture the Pokémon one by one after Corphish damaged the leaf on one of the Nuzleaf's heads. Mudkip and Pikachu were not captured and worked to save the others until Ash and the group arrived.

In Candid Camerupt!, Mudkip battled Victor's Zigzagoon. Mudkip opened by using Water Gun, which Zigzagoon dodged. Zigzagoon then shockingly responded with a Thunderbolt, ending the battle with just the one move.

Marshtomp and Brock

In Judgment Day!, Mudkip was used in a mock battle alongside Lombre against Ash's Swellow and Corphish to help Jimmy train as a referee. Lombre was quickly pushed into a tough position and Brock had it play dead to give Jimmy an easy judgement. As Jimmy wondered what to do, Ash commanded Swellow to attack Lombre, who retaliated with Razor Leaf. The attack failed to knock out Swellow and it and Mudkip attacked with dual Water Guns, which Corphish blocked. Jimmy declared Corphish unable to battle, though it sprung back up immediately after. His teacher scolded him for the rash judgement and the battle was put to an end.

Kanto Battle Frontier

Brock decided to bring Mudkip with him across the Kanto region during Ash's Battle Frontier challenge.

In A Chip Off the Old Brock, Mudkip evolved into a Marshtomp when it was having a practice battle against Ash's Grovyle. It automatically learned Mud Shot upon evolution due to it becoming part Ground type. In the same episode, it became smitten with a Flaaffy, much like the way Brock was smitten by its Trainer.

In What I Did For Love!, Brock decided to enter the Gardenia Town Pokémon Contest in attempt to win the affections of a Pokémon Breeder named Yuma. Marshtomp was motivated to help its Trainer, so Brock decided to use it in the Battle Round of the Contest. It performed rather well, taking out Mollie's Absol. In the finals it fought against May's Eevee and was able to use its fins to sense Eevee's underground movements and detect exactly where it would come up after using Dig. Despite this Eevee eventually won.

Brock left Marshtomp at the Pewter Gym when he decided to join Ash in the Sinnoh region.

Personality and characteristics

Initially, Mudkip was distrustful of strangers and was very protective of those it cared for, similar to Ash's Bulbasaur. This is shown in its debut appearance where it viewed Brock and the others as intruders of its land.
