Camouflaged as rotten kelp, they spray liquid poison on prey that approaches unawares and then finish it off.

Skrelp is version exclusive to Pokemon Y, the counter to
Zoidberg Clauncher. It’s based on a seahorse that camouflages itself.
When I first saw it, I was hoping it would evolve into the first Poison/Dragon Pokemon, because of the story of how seahorses grow to become dragons (like the Horsea family). And I was right!
Skrelp’s design makes it look like a tired old man though, with its hunched back and grumpy-looking face.
