Seadra (Japanese: シードラ Shiidora) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.



It has a long snout and a number of spikes on its head, to the sides and on the top. Its torso is covered with rough, cream-colored scales. Seadra's pectoral fins have sharp, pointed, cream-colored tips from which it exudes venom. Seadra also have a large tail which is generally coiled up. Seadra's quills can render its victim unconscious.


After the female Seadra gives birth, the male Seadra will take care of the young and its nest. It will attack those who venture too near to its children. Seadra has a violent temper.

Special abilities

Seadra can have the ability Poison Point or the ability Sniper. Poison Point has a 30% chance of poisoning a foe who physically attacks Seadra. Sniper increases the power of critical hits. Its spines provide protection. Its fins and bones are prized as traditional medicine ingredients. It is extremely accurate in shooting water from its mouth.


In the anime

Ash Ketchum battled Mandi's Seadra in his first battle in the Indigo League. Cissy used a Seadra while Ash was participating in her target test in Fit to be Tide. A Seadra was one of the Pokémon that were captured and cloned by Mewtwo in Mewtwo Strikes Back. The Seadra clone is seen again in Mewtwo Returns. Juan, the leader of the Sootopolis City Gym, also owns a Seadra.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga, Silver had a Seadra as a part of his team, although it was not shown. During the events of Volume 9, Silver secretly sends Seadra to Gold via trade for his Poliwhirl, triggering Seadra's evolution into Kingdra.


Seadra evolves from Horsea at level 32. Seadra evolves into Kingdra, a Water/Dragon, when traded while holding the Dragon Scale.
