Surskit (アメタマ) is the 32nd Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Bug/Water Type, and it is known as the Pond Skater Pokémon.

Surskit has the Swift Swim Ability. This Ability doubles its Speed when it is raining. The speed increase does not take effect on the same turn in which the weather changes to rain, however. Surskit's Dream World Ability also makes use of the rain, as Surskit from the Dream World have the Rain Dish Ability. This ability restores up to one-sixteenth of its maximum HP at the end of each turn that it is raining.

Surskit gain the opportunity to evolve into Masquerain starting at Level 22.

Surskit is in the Egg Groups Water 1 and Bug, and its Egg takes approximately 3,840 Steps to hatch. It takes Surskit One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.
