Biology

Golduck is a blue Pokémon that is bipedal, duck-like, or platypus-like. It features four spikes on the back of its head, red eyes, a cream-colored beak, a red jewel in the middle of its forehead, and a cream-colored beak. It has three clawed fingers on each hand and foot, with cream-colored webbing in between. Its body is carefully designed to be hydrodynamic, and it has a long tail that it utilizes to steer. Because of its basic humanoid appearance, beak, and webbed hands and feet, Golduck is frequently confused with the Japanese monster, and physical inspiration for Golduck, the Kappa.

Because of its webbed appendages, Golduck is a quick swimmer, capable of outswimming even the most athletic people. This Pokémon’s swimming skills are unaffected by harsh seas, and it will sometimes save humans from shipwrecks. When it employs its mental abilities, and sometimes when it swims at maximum speed, the crystal on its forehead illuminates. This Pokémon was once overhunted because to the notion that the gem provided humans mystical abilities. Golduck, as portrayed in the manga, has the capacity to impart information to its Trainer and other Pokémon through telepathy. Golduck is often observed swimming in lakes, where it hunts fish. The animal is rendered immobile, caught, and brought to shore for eating. According to legend, Golduck punishes people who pollute their waterways by pulling them in and takes them away.
