Ludicolo (ルンパッパ) is the 21st Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Water/Grass Type, and is classified as the Carefree Pokémon.

Ludicolo can have one of three abilities overall, two of which-both of its regular Abilities-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. Lombre'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 can evolve into Lombre once it reaches Level 14. It can then evolve into a Ludicolo when a Water Stone is used on it.

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

[edit] Biology

[edit] Physiology

Ludicolo takes the appearance of an aquatic plantform with two ziz-zag patterns on its body. The lillypad that has been in its head since it was a Lotad has grown into a much larger size at this point, and also includes a large seed at its center.

[edit] Gender Differences

The zig-zag patterns on a Male Ludicolo are thicker than the same patterns on a Female.

[edit] Game Information

[edit] Original Games

Ludicolo can only be obtained by evolving a Lombre.

[edit] Spin-off Games

Ludicolo often appears with Wanderer Miror B in both Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, either in battle or dancing.

Ludicolo appears at Secret Storage 1, Trozei Battle and Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!.

Ludicolo can only be obtained by evolving a Lombre in the first Mystery Dungeon game. In Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Sky, Ludicolo appears at End Lake B1-B24. Ludicolo is exclusive to Light Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing at Mystery Meadow 6F-12F.

Ludicolo appears at Fall City and the Olive Jungle in Pokémon Ranger. Ludicolo does not appear in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, but appears at the South-Western part of Canal Ruins in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs. The only way to access these areas is to summon Raikou or Suicune, depending on the progression of the game.

Ludicolo can be found at Everspring Valley Lake 4-2 in Pokémon Rumble Blast.

[edit] Trading Card Game

Ludicolo appears in six sets and a Nintendo Promo. It is listed as a Rare Card in the EX Sandstorm, EX Deoxys (2), EX Crystal Guardians (Delta Species), Secret Wonders and Platinum sets.

[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] Anime

A trainer named Poncho used a Ludicolo in battle against Ash's Corphish in the episode Go Go Ludicolo!, its first appearance in the Anime.

The majority of Ludicolo's appearances belong to Brock's Ludicolo. It evolved from a Lombre in the episode Once In A Mawile because Lombre had been smitten with a Mawile, only to get shot down in the end. Ludicolo like to dance, and Brock's Ludicolo is no exception: it'll dance on a whim.

[edit] Movies

A Wild Ludicolo appears in the Pikachu Short Gotta Dance, the lone film appearance by a Ludicolo.

[edit] Manga

Ludicolo's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

It isn't often that a Pokémon is viable in all five Tiers of Competitive Battling, but that is the case with Ludicolo, as it is viable in each of the five main Tiers of Competitive Battling. A staple of Rain-based teams, the rain activates both Swift Swim and Rain Dish, which works well when paired with a Pokémon that uses the Drizzle Ability.

Regardless the tier that it is in, changing the weather from rain will shut down the Ability that it is running, making it easier to defeat.
