Goldeen (トサキント) is the 118th Pokémon in the Pokédex. It is a Water-Type, and is known as the Goldfish Pokémon.

Goldeen can use one of two Abilities: Swift Swim, which doubles its Speed while it is raining; or Water Veil, which protects it from getting afflicted with a Burn. Its Hidden Ability is Lightning Rod, which draws Electric-Type moves to it, nullifying the move and its effects, along with increasing its Special Attack by one stage.

Goldeen gain the opportunity to evolve into Seaking starting at Level 33.

Goldeen is in the Water 2 Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Goldeen One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.
