Mudkip (ミズゴロウ) is the seventh Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Water Type, and is known as the Mud Fish Pokémon.

Mudkip has the ability Torrent. With this ability, the power of Mudkip's Water-Type attacks increases by 50% once its HP falls below one-third of its maximum. Mudkip from the Dream World can have a second ability, called Damp. With this ability, no Pokémon will be able to use Selfdestruct and Explosion while the Pokémon with the Damp Ability is on the field because Damp nullifies these moves.

Mudkip can evolve into Marshtomp starting at Level 16, and a second time into Swampert starting at Level 36. A Swampert holding a Swampertite can Mega Evolve into a Mega Swampert starting in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

Mudkip is in the Egg Groups Monster and Water 1, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Mudkip 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
