Kingdra

Intro Trivia Edit

  • Kingdra is the third stage in the Horsea line, being introduced in Gen 2.
  • Its name is essentially means "King Dragon"
  • Kingdra lives at the very bottom of the ocean, supposedly where no other Pokemon live.
  • It is said that its yawns can cause Whirlpools, despite it's mouth being a very small hole at the end of its nose
  • Kingdra's Whirlpools have the capability to swallow entire ships, similar to the abilities of Charybdis

Animal Influence Edit

Animal Influence
  • Kingdra draws influence from the Weedy Sea Dragon. There are only two known species of Sea Dragon on Earth.
  • The other species is the Leafy Sea Dragon. Both species live in the same habitat of Australia's Southern Coast.
  • Dragalge is based off the Leafy Sea Dragon, and similar to real life Dragalge and Seadra are found in the same place in Kalos.
  • Sea Dragons are not Sea Horses, although they are related. The main difference is that Sea Horses have a curled tail to allow them to grab plants.
  • Both Sea Dragons and Horses have the Males carry the eggs. The difference is that while Horses carry them in a pouch, the Dragons hide them under their tails.
  • Kingdra seems to be inspired by both Sea Horses and Dragons, with the posture and antennae of the Dragons, but the Tail of a Sea Horse
  • The evolution via Dragon Scale makes it seem as though a Sea Horse used a Dragon Scale to turn into a Sea Dragon

Battle Strategy Edit

Kingdra Battle

CritDra Edit

  • Item: Scope Lens
  • Ability: Sniper
  • Nature: Modest (+Sp. Attack, -Attack)
  • EVs: Sp. Attack, Speed, HP
  • Moves:
    • Focus Energy
    • Agility
    • Draco Meteor
    • Hydro Pump
  • The combination of Scope Lens and one use of Focus Energy will guarantee all subsequent attacks will be critical hits.
  • Combining this with Sniper will increase the damage done by these crits
  • Agility can allow you to set up even further if you predict a switch.
  • Draco Meteor is fantastic because crits will ignore the Stat Drops, Hydro Pump is another excellent STAB attack

Random Thoughts Edit

  • Hidden Power Fire can catch things like Ferrothorn off-guard.
  • Substitute, Dragon Dance, Waterfall, and Outrage can work on a physical set
  • Swift Swim on a Rain Dance Team holding a Life Orb is another viable strategy
