Lotad is a small blue Pokémon with a yellow bill-like mouth and six small blue legs. It appears to have a lilypad on its back. It is believed that when a Lotad's leaf becomes too big, it starts to float on the water. However, if Lotad does not drink water for too long, the leaf on its head wilts. Lotad is able to float into the middle of ponds and lakes and photosynthesize food for itself without direct competition from others. Lotad is usually quite placid and easygoing. It can also serve as ferries for smaller Pokémon that can't swim. On rare occasions, it travels on land in search of clean water.
- Lotad and its evolutions have a unique type combination.
- No other Pokémon have the same dual Egg Group as Lotad's evolutionary line. In this case, both in Water 1 and Grass are unique.
- Lotad can be seen as a parallel to Seedot. Both of them are Grass-type Generation III Pokémon and are part of a three-stage evolutionary line, who evolve into their evolved forms at or above level 14, and whose second evolutionary event utilizes an Evolutionary stone. Lotad is exclusive to Pokémon Sapphire, while Seedot is exclusive to Pokémon Ruby, with both Pokémon found in the same locations in their respective versions. Additionally, both Pokémon can be found in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum by using the Dual-slot mode, with Lotad requiring Pokémon Sapphire, and Seedot requiring Pokémon Ruby. Both can also be found in White Forest in Pokémon White, and both have the same base stat total, with both having equal stats arranged differently.
