Marill can have one of two abilities: Thick Fat, an Ability that reduces the damage taken from Fire and Ice Type Attacks by 50%; or Huge Power, an Ability that doubles the power of all of its Attacks. However, the effect of Huge Power is reduced by half if the Ability gets changed by way of Skill Swap. Marill from the Dream World use the Sap Sipper Ability. This ability increases its Attack by one stage should it take a hit from a Grass-Type move, and it won't take any damage from that move either. Additionally, due to Marill being a Water Type, this Ability also nullifies its Grass Type weakness.
Azurill can evolve into a Marill when it has a high Happiness Value and Levels Up, but this only applies from Generation III onward. It can evolve into Azumarill once Marill reaches Level 18, or the first Level Up after evolving Marill should Azurill evolve at Level 18 or higher, where applicable.
Marill is in the Egg Groups Water 1 and Fairy, and its Egg takes approximately 2,560 Steps to hatch regardless if the Pokémon was bred to hatch a Marill or Azurill. It takes Marill 800,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
Marill resembles a small blue rodent with a ball on its tail.
Marill doesn't have any differences to differentiate between male and female. It is worth noting that its pre-evolved form Azurill is a rare case of a pre-evolved Pokémon having a different Gender Ratio than its evolved forms; Azurill's Gender Ratio is Male 25%-Female 75% whereas both of its evolved forms are 50-50.
