Mudkip Guide

The Generation 3 water-type is available as the player or partner through the main game.

Usually, Mudkip is chosen if the personality results are Calm (for males) and Timid (for females) in nature.

Its mobility is categorised by water, meaning it can traverse through water tiles but not fire/cloud tiles or walls.

As Mudkip is a water type, he will be weak to electric and grass type Pokemon, meaning you should pair it with a ground or fire type such as Cubone, Charmander, Cyndaquil and Torchic.

Evolving Mudkip

Evolution does not play a massive part in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, so it is perfectly ok to keep Mudkip as it is.

Although stats do not increase from evolution, moves can vary once it evolves into Marshtomp or Swampert.

If you do wish to evolve Mudkip, you will need to finish the main story and enter the Luminous Cave - be sure to check our evolution guide for more details.
