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

It evolves from Goldeen starting at level 33.

Biology

Seaking is a primarily orange and white, fish-like Pokémon. It has round, dark eyes, prominent pink lips, two small fangs, and a cream-colored horn in the center of its forehead. A female will have a smaller horn than a male. Most of its body is orange with a patch of white under its mouth and along its underside. There are several black markings on its body: two thick lines under each eye, a large wavy patch on its back, and several speckles near its tail. It has billowing pectoral fins and a pair of tail fins shaped like butterfly wings, all of which are white specked with black. However, its dorsal fin is pure white and rigid.

Seaking is a very powerful swimmer that is found in rivers and streams. It can swim not only against a river's current, but up waterfalls as well. In the autumn spawning season, it grows fatter and more vibrant. It travels upriver where male Seaking 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 take turns patrolling around their new nest for roughly a month and defend it with their lives. In the past, Waterfall was its signature move.

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.
  • 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

Seaking seems to be based on a variant of the Oranda 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, and possibly a corruption of "seeking".

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".
