Lotad, Lombre and Ludicolo

Pokémon GO Ludicolo

Pokémon GO Lotad, Lombre and Pokémon GO Ludicolo are the only Pokémon specie that have the unique water / grass typing. This typing goes hand in hand with their appearance of toad-like lotus flowers.

Ludicolo’s move pool is incredible and it features several great moves: Hydro Pump, Solar Beam and Blizzard. Ludicolo is basically Lanturn of Generation III, made for destroying Water types.

Position in the meta game

Ludicolo works perfectly as a counter to both Water and Grass types that are currently available in game. In an usual twist of events, Ludicolo can be built into three separate builds:

  • Razor Leaf and Solar Beam – a double Grass moveset, perfect for countering Water types
  • Bubble and Hydro Pump – a double Water moveset, good for countering Rock types
  • Anything with Blizzard – a hybrid Ice moveset, good for countering Grass types

However, Ludicolo excels at utilising the #1 build, double Grass moveset, and wrecking havoc among Water types. He takes reduced (51% at the moment of this writing) damage from Water typed attacks.

Ludicolo Moves in Pokémon Go

Best moveset: Razor Leaf with Solar Beam

To be completely honest, Ludicolo has no bad moves. Every single moveset has a role to play, including the one based around Blizzard. However, we strongly advise to go for Solar Beam, as it’s the core of what Ludicolo is made for: destroying Water types.

Ludicolo has access to the following moves:

  • Razor Leaf Grass (fast)
  • Bubble Water (fast)
  • Hydro Pump Water (1 bar, charge)
  • Solar Beam Grass (1 bar, charge)
  • Blizzard Ice (1 bar, charge)

Shiny Lotad, Lombre and Ludicolo variants

Like many other shiny variants, there is a distinct change in Ludicolo family color compared to their non-shiny counterparts. Since Lotad, Lombre and Ludicolo seem to have a sombrero, this particular area of the Pokémon also has a distinct change in color along with its torso area.
