Skrelp (Japanese: クズモー Kuzumo) is a dual-type Poison/Water Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

It evolves into Dragalge starting at level 48.

Biology

Skrelp is a brown aquatic Pokémon that resembles a common sea dragon. It has a purple face and neck, red eyes rimmed with black, a tubular, upturned snout, a leaf-like pectoral fin on either side of its head, and a large, roundish lump on top of its head. A light blue, round growth is attached to the back of its head by a thin brown stem. Its back has a slight hunch with a blunt spike. On either side of its body is a rounded, light blue fin and it has a striated, purple belly. Its tail is composed of three leaf-like fins.

Skrelp is a poor swimmer, so it camouflages itself as seaweed to hide from enemies while storing power for evolution. Skrelp rides the seaweed as a form of traveling the ocean. It also uses this technique to hide from prey, which it sprays with liquid poison when approached. However, its main source of food is rotten seaweed. Skrelp is known to coexist well with Dhelmise.

Minor appearances

A Skrelp appeared in Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction.

Ultra Sun It vanishes into seaweed and remains perfectly still to avoid attacks from large Pokémon. Rotten seaweed is its main food source.
Ultra Moon It's not good at swimming, so it clings to the seaweed. In the Alola region, it's often found near Dhelmise.

Sword It drifts in the ocean, blending in with floating seaweed. When other Pokémon come to feast on the seaweed, Skrelp feasts on them instead.
Shield Skrelp looks like a piece of rotten seaweed, so it can blend in with seaweed drifting on the ocean and avoid being detected by enemies.
