Lotad (ハスボー) is the 19th Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Water/Grass Type, and is classified as the Water Weed Pokémon.

Lotad can have one of three abilities, two of which involve rain: Swift Swim, which doubles its Speed when it is raining, but not on the same turn in which the weather becomes rain; or Rain Dish, which recovers 1/16 of its maximum Hit Points at the end of each turn that it is raining. Lotad's Dream World ability does not involve the rain, however. Its Dream World Ability is Own Tempo, preventing it from becoming confused from moves that confuse directly such as Confuse Ray or Teeter Dance, or as a side-effect of an attack such as Psybeam or Dizzy Punch.

Lotad gain the opportunity to evolve into Lombre once it reaches Level 14. It can then evolve into a Ludicolo when a Water Stone is used on it.

Lotad is in the Egg Groups Water 1 and Grass, and its Egg takes approximately 3,840 Steps to hatch. It takes Lotad 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
