BiologyEdit

PhysiologyEdit

Hiponea resemble a cross between horses and fish, similar to the mythical Hippocampus. They are light blue, with a horse-like head and flipper-like front limbs. They have fins on their heads and necks instead of manes, and fish-like tails with fan-shaped fins. They also have four shingle-like scales on their undersides.

Gender DifferencesEdit

A female has a smaller head fin.

Special abilitiesEdit

Because of their powerful fins and tails, Hiponea can swim very fast in any direction, even backwards. They can also store water in a special swim bladder located in their chests, and shoot it with incredible force. Their ability, Torrent, gives them a boost in power when health is low.

HabitatEdit

Hiponea live in coastal bays, but they can also be found in urban aquariums.

DietEdit

Hiponea are herbivorous, and their main diet is kelp and sea grass.

In Iron & CopperEdit

Pi's starter, which first appeared in All Roads Lead to Kroel, is a Hiponea named Triton.

Powerdex EntriesEdit

Iron and Copper = "This little Pokemon lives near the water's surface, where the water is clear. His tail and fins allow him to move in almost any direction while swimming, even backward. He is very docile and smart, but a very good fighter too."

TriviaEdit

  • Hiponea is the only Kroel Water Starter so far to be in the Fairy egg group.
    • It is not the only Kroel Starter in the Fairy egg group, however, as Satany and Dragorsy are in this egg group as well.

OriginEdit

Hiponea is based on the Hippocampus, a legendary creature of Greek mythology with a horse's body and a fish's tail.

Name originEdit

The name comes from "Hippocamp," "Pony," and "Sea."

Its Japanese name comes from umi, "sea," and kouma, "pony."
