Marshtomp (Japanese: ヌマクロー Numakurou) is the Water/Ground-type Starter Pokémon of the Hoenn region, introduced in Generation III.

Biology

Physiology

Marshtomp is a bipedal amphibious Pokémon that resembles both a mudskipper and an axolotl. It is mainly cyan blue with a plump orange belly and orange spikes on its cheeks. It has dark blue fins on its body: one sharply pointed one atop its head, and two rounded ones on its backside. Its chin and neck are light blue. It has long, powerful arms with fin-like fingers, and short powerfully-built legs. Its small ovular eyes are orange, and it has small nostrils.

Special abilities

It can swim quickly in the water. With its two orange horns on left and right, it can easily find ways to escape from a place if it senses danger. This Pokémon's sure stance will stay sturdy even in shifting mud, and loves to burrow into moist dirt to sleep. Marshtomp sometimes only lives in water. In a pinch, Marshtomps will find strength enough to crush even rocks that are bigger than themselves.

Marshtomp has the ability Torrent, which will increase the power of Water-type moves in a pinch.

Evolution

Marshtomp is the evolved form of Mudkip. Marshtomp evolves into Swampert once it reaches level 36.
