Salatad is a Water-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Salanip starting at level 16, which evolves into Salaslam starting at level 36.

Along with Herovor and Purrlit, Salatad is one of the starter Pokémon of the Rikoto region, able to be chosen at the beginning of Pokémon Solar Light & Lunar Dark.

Biology

Physiology

Salatad are pastel blue, amphibious Pokémon. Their eyes are large, and a radioactive green color. They have white fins on the back of their backs which help them move a lot faster in the water. They have numerous small pink spots on the back, which are poisonous to the touch. Their mouths and underbellies are white in color, and their feet possess two pink claws at the bottom of their feet which allow them to easily walk on the land appropriately.

Special abilities

Salatad can swim very fast despite its size, getting away from much larger predators than itself. Their skin can become poisonous when they coat themselves in a slimy acid, which will make predators physically not be able to make contact with them. They can shoot a powerful shot of water at opponents when threatened.

Behavior

Salatad appear to be quite dull witted but are very tactical in how they fight, using different water and poison techniques. Salatad spend most of their time in the water, but will move out of the water during nighttime or when the water's temperature becomes slightly cold. They coat themselves in a slimy, poisonous acid that allows them to stay hydrated outside of the water while walking around on land. They hate when other pokemon are in their small body of water.

Habitat

Salatad live in marshy and wet areas where they can thrive on the water and land.

Trivia

  • Salatad originally wasn't a starter. The Water-type starter originally was a Pokémon named Tidetsu, a sea fairy Pokémon, and then a Pokémon named Hermik, which was based on a Hermit Crab. Tidetsu does appear in the current game, however, after recently being remade. Hermik was cut from this game because there were too many Water-types.

Origin

  • Salatad is based on a Salamander.

Name origin

Salatad's name comes from Salamander and Tadpole.
