Mudkip, the Mud Fish Pokémon. Mudkip uses the sensitive fin on its head to take radar readings off its surroundings.

Mudkipz, i herd u liek them.
Ahem, Internet meme aside, Mudkip is a pretty cute Pokemon. It’s my favourite Gen III starter. It’s pure Water type, but evolves into Water/Ground, which is one of my fave type combinations. It’s based on a mudskipper, or an axolotl, even though Wooper is also based on an axolotl.
Mudkip has pretty even stats, ‘cept it has increased Attack and decreased Speed.
In the anime, Brock had a Mudkip, which he found in the wild (yes, for some reason, starter Pokemon can be found in the wild in the anime) and befriended.
I remember one April Fools day, when deviantART changed everyone’s avatars into a mudkip, included with the “i herd u liek mudkipz” text.
