Horsea Horsea (Japanese: タッツー Tattu) is a Template:Type Template:OBP introduced in Generation I.

It evolves into Template:P starting at level 32, which evolves into Template:P when traded holding a Dragon Scale.

Biology

Horsea is a small, blue, Template:Wp-like Pokémon with a single dorsal fin and a tightly curled tail. Its eyes are red and its ridged belly and dorsal fin are cream-colored. It has a long, tubular mouth and three spike-like projections on either side of its head.

It is highly adept in the water, using its dorsal fin to swim in any direction while facing forward. It can use its tail as both a balance and an anchor when caught in a strong current. In safer environments, it uses its tail to play with other members of its species. If Horsea senses danger, it sprays water or dense black ink from its mouth at its attacker. It can shoot ink more precisely at insects flying above the surface of the water. Horsea feeds on insects and moss gathered from rocks. It nests in coral reefs and islands throughout the Template:DL. Many Eggs are laid every year, and the young are raised by the male Horsea rather than the female.

Trivia

Horsea's Red and Blue artwork depicting it with two fins instead of one

  • Horsea and its evolutions share their Template:Pkmn with Template:P, its evolutions, Template:P, and Template:P. They are all known as the Dragon Pokémon.
  • Horsea's art work from Pokémon Red and Blue depicted it with two fins instead of one. This two finned design was referenced in Alola, Kanto!

Origin

Horsea is based on a Template:Wp, though its ability to shoot ink resembles that of a Template:Wp. Its species name might be a reference to Template:Wps, or seahorses turning into dragons after a century in Japanese mythology.

Name origin

Horsea is derived from Template:Wp with reversed syllables, and a corruption of the diminutive Template:Wp.

Tattu is a corruption of 竜 tatsu (dragon), which is part of the common name of a seahorse in Japanese: 竜の落し子 tatsu-no-otoshigo ("illegitimate child of a dragon").
