Dewgong (Japanese: ジュゴン Jugon) is a dual-type Water/Ice Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves from Seel starting at level 34.

Biology

Dewgong is a pinniped Pokémon with a snowy white, furry body. Its fur renders it virtually invisible in snowy conditions. Its face has two black eyes, a black nose, and two tusks extending from its upper jaw. It has a streamlined body with two front flippers and a long flowing tail. Even in extremely cold and ice-packed waters, its tail allows it to be a swift and agile swimmer at speeds of 8 knots. On top of its head is a sharp horn, which allows it to cut through the thickest ice floes.

It lives on icebergs adrift in frigid ocean waters. It thrives in lower temperatures, becoming increasingly more active the colder the weather. By storing thermal energy within its body, it is completely unharmed by even the most intense freezing weather. During daylight hours, it sleeps on bitterly cold ice or under shallow water. However, at night when the temperature drops, it becomes a hunter and searches for prey such as Wishiwashi. Following a meal, it sunbathes on the beach. This raises its body temperature and aids in digestion.

Evolution

Dewgong evolves from Seel.

(For specifics on this Pokémon's evolution in the games, refer to Game data→Evolution data.)

Dewgong can swim incredibly fast thanks to its streamlined body, which has little drag in the water. On the snowfields, we saw one playing with a Spheal like it was playing with a ball.

Trivia

Origin

Dewgong may be based on earless seals, particularly harp seal pups due to its white fur and icy habitat. Its body is similar to mermaids. It also shares characteristics with various aquatic mammals that live in the Arctic Ocean. Its long, white body is similar to a beluga whale, its horn may be inspired by a narwhal, and its tusks may be inspired by a walrus.

Name origin

Dewgong may be a combination of dew and dugong.

Jugon may be derived from 儒艮 jugon (dugong).
