Evolves Into Goldeen

Seaking, (アズマオウ Azumao) the Goldfish Pokémon, is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I. It evolves from Goldeen starting at level 33. Despite its name, Seaking has a gender ratio of 1 male to 1 female (50%/50%).

Physical Description

Seaking resembles a koi or goldfish, as it is a big orange colored fish with white and black markings. It has a billowing tail fin and similar pectoral fins, all of which are white with black speckles. Along its back, there is another small fin that is pure white. It also has a small to medium sized horn on its head, two big dark eyes, and pink lips with two small, sharp fangs. Female Seaking have a smaller horn that the males.

Special Abilities

Seaking is a very powerful swimmer, as it is able to swim against a river's current, and even waterfalls. It also uses its powerful horn to bore holes in solid rock, so as to keep its eggs safe.


In autumn, its body becomes fattier in preparing to propose to a mate. In the spawning season, they gather from all over to travel upriver. During this time, the Seaking males can be seen performing their courtship dances to woo Seaking females. The male also uses its powerful horn to bore holes in riverbed boulders, to keep the eggs safe, although in other seasons it will make and live in their own nests. Seaking is very protective of its eggs, defending its eggs with its life and fighting with its horn. The male and female will take turns patrolling around their nest and eggs, and the guarding of eggs by the Seaking goes on for over a month until the eggs hatch.
