Intro Trivia Edit
| Mudkip has received updated trivia and/or battle strategy.|
The updated trivia and/or battle strategy can be found here.
- Mudkip is very strong, with the highest attack stat out of all the Gen 3 starters.
- Mudkip's name and design come from the Mudskipper, but also shares characteristics with the Axolotl.
- It has a pure Water-type, but gains Ground-type when it evolves into Marshtomp, which is an excellent typing that leaves it with just one weakness to Grass.
- Mudkip can use the fin atop it's head to sense what's going around in it's surroundings without the use of other senses like sight.
Class with Kellz! Edit
- "I herd you liek Mudkipz" is a popular Pokémon meme.
- It originally started on DeviantArt, through "The Mudkip Club". The popular phrase was used as their invite.
- From there, it quickly spread to other popular sites like 4Chan and ytmnd.
- The joke reached its peak popularity in 2008.
- It's not quiet as popular as it once was, but is still recognizable, and there are plenty of images and gifs of the topic.
Battle Strategy Edit
- Item: Salac Berry
- Ability: Torrent
- Nature: Jolly (+Speed, -Sp. Attack)
- EVs: Unspecified
- Rain Dance/Yawn
- Use Substitute repeatedly until your Salac Berry kicks in, raising your speed.
- At that point, Torrent should also trigger, allowing you to hit hard and fast with Waterfall.
- Endeavor will also help out since your HP will be so low from all the Substitutes.
- If you have a chance to set up a Rain Dance or Yawn, take it to either hit even harder, or force a switch.
Random Thoughts Edit
- Using Yawn allows you to set up Curses and a Substitute.
- Choice Band is an option, but limits what moves you can use.
- Ice Beam is a decent move for coverage.
