It evolves from Salanip starting at level 36. It is the final form of Salatad. It can Mega Evolve into Mega Salaslam using the Salaslamite.
Salaslam is a bipedal amphibious Pokémon, much like Salanip, but fiercer and more powerful. It has a teal body with a white underbelly and muzzle with a purple gem in the center of the torso. Its arms are teal with white palms and purple claws and purple gems on the back of its hands. Its legs are black which end in thin legs with purple toes, with a spike protruding from each of the thighs. It has green eyes with black pupils, and two large white and black fins on its head. It also has a long tail with two dorsal fins.
When Salaslam Mega Evolves, its skin color changes to a greyish-blue, and the spikes on its thighs and hands grow longer and sharper. The fins on Salaslam's head also grow larger and change shape. There is also an extra stripe on its torso.
Salaslam have much more poison in their bodies than their pre-evolutions, which allow them to use much more powerful poison attacks. Their aquatic nature allows them to use many strong water attacks while also allowing them to dive under water for a long amount of time.
Salaslam can be very aggressive Pokémon, but are normally harmless to things that stroll past, unless they may hold a threat. They live on land, like Salanip, but do occasionally go underwater to find food and to care for their young.
Salaslam live in wetland and marshy areas, where there is enough water and land for them to live.
This Pokémon can slug prey with its powerful arms and tail. Salaslam can excrete toxins through its mouth and skin.
