Kingdra resembles of a large, blue weedy sea dragon with two branch-like horns on its head and two pairs of flippers on each side with a yellow underbelly.
It is said that Kingdra lives and sleeps at the bottom of the sea floor, at extreme depths that are otherwise devoid of life due to water pressure. It also usually hides in underwater caves. It is believed to create maelstroms by yawning. When a storm arrives, it is said to awaken and wander about in search of prey. When it comes to the surface, it creates a huge whirlpool with enough force to swallow ships.
Kingdra, is the only non-Legendary Dragon-type Pokémon not to be weak to Ice-type.
Kingdra comes from king, dragon and hydra.
Kingdra is based on a weedy sea dragon (a type of seahorse with similar horns and fins to Kingdra). Its Dragon-type is a reference to the Japanese name for the seahorse (竜の落し子) which translates into "dragon's child". Its ability to shoot ink and water from its "beak" makes it similar to a cannon.
