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 takes on the appearance of a blue four-legged bug that skates on the top of the water.
 Gender Differences
Surskit doesn't have any distinguishable characteristics to differentiate between male and female.
