Two Mudkip eggs and a third hatching

Mudkip is a amphibious, quadruped Pokémon. It has a blue body with a light-blue underside. It has a large head with a blue fin on top and a light-blue tail fin. It has black, beady eyes and orange, star-shaped gills on its cheeks.

Mudkip can point its fin in a certain direction. 


Mudkip lives in swamps and other wetlands, where it sleeps by burying itself in soil at the water’s edge.


Mudkip is a very docile Pokémon.


Mudkip is capable of moving or crushing boulders larger than itself.

Mudkip can use its tail fin to propel it through water with powerful acceleration.

Using the fin on its head, Mudkip is able to detect changes in air and water currents, as well as bodies of water.
