Corphish (フーディン) is the 129th Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Water-Type, and it is known as the Ruffian Pokémon.

Corphish can have one of two Abilities: Hyper Cutter, which prevents opponents from lowering its Attack Statistic with either moves or Abilities, but can still reduce its Attack with a move such as Superpower; or Shell Armor, an Ability that prevents attacks from landing a Critical Hit. A third Ability is available to Corphish from the Dream World, the Adaptability Ability. This Ability doubles the power of all its Water-Type attacks instead of the normal 50% Same Type Attack Boost.

Corphish gain the opportunity to evolve into Crawdaunt starting at Level 30.

Corphish is in the Egg Groups Water 1 and Water 3, and its Egg takes approximately 3,840 Steps to hatch. It takes Corphish up to 1,640,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
