Azumarill (Sylvilagus aqua) is a Water/Fairy type Pokémon that was first discovered in the Johto region. Azumarill is the final stage of the Azurill and Marill evolutionary line.
Azumarill are spherical rabbit-like creatures that have long ears. Their fur is dominantly blue; however, the the bottom of their bodies are adorned in white fur with a bubble-like pattern. The bubble patterns on its stomach serves as a defense mechanism by allowing it to camouflage underwater. This ties in with its blue fur colour which gives Azumarill an opportunity to confuse or trick predators while in the water. Their long ears are usually raised upright; however, Azumarill may roll their ears while underwater to prevent water from getting in through their ears. The ears of an Azumarill are reddish-pink on the inside.
Azumarill have an erratic zigzag like tail that are topped off with a small blue sphere that is unique to the Azumarill family. The ball-like tip of its tail serves as a buoy to prevent Azumarill from drowning in the toughest currents. The tip of the tail is filled with a special oil that is lighter than water. The buoy-like tail also provided it with nutrients and strength to develop since its infant stage. Azumarill have rather short and stubby arms that appear to resemble flippers.
Azumarill are gentle Pokémon that often make air bubbles for other Pokémon that are drowning; thus, allowing them to be able to breathe till they are brought to safety. They are also seen to being timid.
Azumarill have highly a developed hearing sense and are capable of hearing the sounds of prey even while underwater. It is also able to distinguish the movements of living creatures within the riverbed as a result of its advanced hearing. Azumarill are capable of swimming well; however, their lightweight can often cause them to be pushed away by tough currents in the rivers. As a result, they are capable of using their tails to stay afloat in the harshest currents.
Azumarill are vegetarians; however, they may prey on fish as a result of their hearing capabilities while underwater. Regardless, Azumarill prefer to eat berries, fruit and underwater plants.
Azumarill are able to breed with Marill and other Azumarill. Though in addition, some Azumarill may breed with Ditto in their imitated forms. Azumarill eggs generally hatch into Marill within the Johto region; however, Azurill often hatch when one of the parents hold onto a Sea Incense while breeding. It's possible that a natural scent in which the Sea Incense is based off allows Azumarill to create Azurill in the wild without having to hold onto the man-made Sea Incense.
