Biology

Physiology

Dewgong, like its pre-evolution, is seal like. Through evolution it has gotten a lot bigger and its coat is still fully white. From the top of its mouth are two tusks that are visible when its mouth is closed. There is still a horn at the top of its head after evolution. Dewgong's flippers and the end of the tail look very fin-like.

Gender Differences

Dewgong has no gender differences.
