In the autumn spawning season, they can be seen swimming powerfully up rivers and creeks.
Yellow It is the male's job to make a nest by carving out boulders in a stream using the horn on its head.
Gold During spawning season, SEAKING gather from all over, coloring the rivers a brilliant red.
Silver Using its horn, it bores holes in riverbed boulders, making nests to prevent its eggs from washing away.
Crystal When autumn comes, the males patrol the area around their nests in order to protect their offspring.
Ruby In the autumn, SEAKING males can be seen performing courtship dances in riverbeds to woo females. During this season, this POKéMON’s body coloration is at its most beautiful.
Sapphire SEAKING is very protective of its eggs. The male and female will take turns patrolling around their nest and eggs. The guarding of eggs by these POKéMON goes on for over a month.
FireRed The horn on its head is sharp like a drill. It bores a hole in a boulder to make its nest.
LeafGreen In the autumn spawning season, they can be seen swimming powerfully up rivers and creeks.
Emerald It punches holes in boulders on streambeds. This is a clever innovation that prevents its eggs from being attacked or washed away by the current.
Diamond It makes its nest by hollowing out boulders in streams with its horn. It defends its eggs with its life.
Pearl To protect its family, it will fight with its drill-sharp horn. It lives in hollowed rocks in streams.

HeartGold During spawning season, SEAKING gather from all over, causing rivers to appear a brilliant red.

Sun When the weather grows cold, its whole body flushes a deep red. This sight serves as a poetic reminder that autumn has arrived.
Moon Trainers who are crazy for Seaking are divided into horn enthusiasts and fin enthusiasts. The two groups do not get along well.
Ultra Sun Its horn spins like a drill to steadily hollow out rocks—even harder ones. The coloration of the male is more vivid.
Ultra Moon To attract females, males dance on the river’s floor. The females gather around the male that dances most gracefully.
