    Kingdra evolves from Seadra when holding a Dragon Scale. It is a water dragon Pokemon and is a dual type creature. It is in fact the final form of Horsea. This is a seahorse like large Pokemon, with a curled tail. This sea horse is no easy target. True to being like a dragon, Kingdra is one fierce fighter. It is typed in such a way that it has hardly any major weaknesses. Kingdra has blue scales and has yellow belly scales which are compact. Its snout is thin but very powerful.
