Swampert (ラグラージ) is the 9th Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Water/Ground Type, and is known as the Mud Fish Pokémon.

Swampert has the ability Torrent. With this ability, the power of Swampert's Water-Type attacks increases by 50% once its HP falls below one-third of its maximum. Swampert 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 evolve into Marshtomp starting at Level 16, and can evolve into Swampert starting at Level 36. Starting in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, a Swampert that is holding a Swampertite can Mega Evolve into Mega Swampert by using a Mega Stone.

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

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Swampert finds itself in the Under-Utilized and Over-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. It works well as a defensive tank, as it can set up Stealth Rock and use Toxic while dishing out some heavy hits thanks to a high Attack. It's biggest problem is its typing, which leaves it twice as vulnerable to Grass-Type moves, along with opponents with the Intimidate Ability.
