'''Swampert''' (Japanese: '''ラグラージ''' ''Raguraazu'') is the {{type|Water}}/{{type|Ground}}-[[Types|type]] [[Starter Pokémon]] of the [[Hoenn]] region, introduced in [[Generation III]].
 
   
==Appearance==
 
Swampert's appearance is inspired from the real world mudskipper. It has a long blue body with a lighter blue underbelly. It has four appendages that are a cross between legs and fins. With these, it sometimes stands upright on its hind legs, and at other times is on all fours like a quadrupedal animal. Each has an orange oval on it. Swampert has large, fan-shaped fins above its eyes and a huge axe-like fin growing out of its behind as a prosaic tail would. It also has a pair of orange gills on either side of its face. It also has very small orange eyes.[[File:Swampert f punch.png|thumb|A Swampert using Focus Punch]]
 
 
==Special abilities==
 
Swampert is a diurnal [[Pokémon]] with an affinity to water. Thus it lives and makes its nest offshore on various beaches. It has various abilities that allow it to live without fear of being targeted as prey. Its three fins sense subtle changes in the sounds and patterns of ocean waves and tidal winds to predict the oncoming of storms and tidal waves, respectively. Its great strength, allowing it to procure and drag boulders that can weigh a ton, lets it pile up boulders around its beach nest in order to weather the storms that it may predict. Of course, with its strength and its rock-hard arms, it can easily batter down a foe with a single swing.
 
 
Other talents include its powerful vision, able to see through even the depths of murky water, allowing Swampert to live in a swamp or marshland environment, and its amazing swimming ability, making it faster in water than a jet ski. Its speed is comparable to the Pokémon [[Poliwrath]].
 
 
Normally Swampert can be obtained only by evolving a [[Marshtomp]], which, in turn, must be evolved from [[Mudkip]], a [[Starter Pokémon]] in [[Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire|Ruby]], [[Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire|Sapphire]] and [[Pokémon Emerald|Emerald]]. A cheat system can also be used to obtain a Swampert as well. It is ranked 76th in the Top 100 Pokémon based on its stats, and is the best starter on all counts.
 
 
==Stats==
 
Swampert has great [[Statistics#Attack|attack]] and [[Hit Points]] with quite nice [[Defense]] to compliment that, and is extremely versatile due to its typing. However, Swampert's special attack is a little lower, making many believe that it should not be used for attacking with special moves, and its speed is decidedly low. Its {{Type|Water}}/{{Type|Ground}}-[[type]] combination protects it from {{Type|Electric}}-type Pokémon, which are usually a pain against {{Type|Water}}-type [[Pokémon]], but it also makes it 4x weak to {{Type|Grass}}-type [[Statistics#Attack|attack]]s. It can learn [[Ice Beam]] and [[Avalanche]], which may help to counter this vulnerability. Swampert is usually used in physical offense, with the powerful {{Type|Ground}}-type [[Earthquake]] [[Statistics#Attack|attack]] as a staple in almost all of its movesets. Swampert's excellent [[defense]] also make it a good [[Roar]]er. Swampert is one of the most feared [[Pokémon]] in the metagame that trainers are willing to teach their [[Pokémon]] {{Type|Grass}}-type moves just to counter it. Due to its invunerability to electricity and ability to learn a whole range of moves to counter foes, a Swampert can also be used as a powerhouse in one's party as well as a tank.
 
 
==Voice Actor==
 
In the anime, Swampert was voiced by [[Scottie Ray]] in the [[4Kids Entertainment]] dub.
 
 
==Evolution==
 
'''Swampert''' is the final [[evolution]] of the [[Hoenn]] [[Starter Pokémon]] [[Mudkip]]. It evolves from [[Marshtomp]] at level 36.
 
 
==Game info==
 
Swampert is playable in Mystery Dungeon games by evolveing Marshstomp. But much like [[Lucario]], He has no role in the main story at all.

==Name origin==
 
This [[Pokémon]]'s name comes from swamp, a place where many {{Type|Water}}/{{Type|Ground}}-type [[Pokémon]] would likely be found, and rampart, meaning a fortification, which probably refers to its habit of piling up boulders to protect itself. It could also come from the word expert, as it is very capable in a swamplike area.
