007 Nauplia

The Water Larva Pokémon

Nauplia's line has developed a remarkable resistance to human-generate pollution. However, to accomplish this, Nauplia has lost its ability to adapt to changes in other environmental factors, such as Temperature, PH-Value, and Salinity, the last of which is particularly important; dry land is more habitable to it than a high-salt environment. This vulnerability which belies their capacity to resist more conventional forms of harm relative to their stage of development.   Nauplia most readily thrives in fresh-water harbors actively being used in human shipping. This limits their potential habitats severely, largely restricting them to freshwater lakes connected to the ocean near prominent shipping lanes by navigable rivers and canals.
— Arvent Regional Pokédex #007

Basic Information


Nauplia is exclusively of the Water-Type. It is weak to attacks of the Electric and Ground Types, and resistant to attacks of the Fire, Ice, Steel, and Water Types. It commonly possesses the ability Torrent, which raises the power of Water-Type moves in a pinch, but may on rare occasions possess the ability Battle Armor,which protects the Pokémon in question from critical hits.   Nauplia is most-capable in both varieties of defense. Its physical offense is middling for its level of development, and its non-physical offense and speed are considerably lacking.   Nauplia's body is divided into two sections, the head and the telson, the latter of which is occasionally called the foot; of the two, the head is the larger by far. The front of its head is adorned with a shield-like crest, with small holes for it to see through, and a small mouth just under the bottom edge. It has six limbs generally called its legs, which end in comb-like structures which it uses to propel itself through the water, and which may also be used to crawl on land.

Genetics and Reproduction

Being the initial stage of an evolutionary line, Nauplia does not have any particularly strong urge to produce offspring. However, it does have the capability to do so. Nauplius belongs to the Third-Water and Monster Egg Groups.

Growth Rate & Stages

Nauplius evolves in 008 Cypritox, which in turn evolves into 009 Nauticle.

Dietary Needs and Habits

Nauplia generally feeds by filtering small particles out of the water. However, they can also eat small, soft objects, like some fruits and pastries.
Conservation Status
Nauplia, as well as its evolved forms 008 Cypritox and 009 Nauticle, are considered critically endangered, as defined by the Transregional Convention on the Protection of Pokémon Species (the Convention). This was declared in a joint statement by the Pokémon League of the Arvent Region and the Transregional Pokémon Ranger Corps. The reason for their endangerment is attributed to paucity of habitat availability, both within the Arvent Region and. As per the Convention, Nauplia, Cypritox, and Nauticlee may not be caught in the wild, and those bred in captivity may only enter the care of a trainer with the approval of an accredited Pokémon Professor. The needs of the species mandate that extensive human use of available habitats, however the manner and conduct of exploitation is subject to strict monitoring and regulation by the Arvent Region Pokémon Ranger Corps.+
