Seadra, The Dragon Pokémon. It is Capable of swimming backwards by flapping its fins and tail rapidly. Touching the back of it's fin causes numbness. It hooks it's tail to coral in order to stay in place when asleep. A Cell Examination found a gene not present in Horsea. It became a hot topic. Its fin's tips leak poison. It's fins and bones are used in herbal medicine. The male raises it's young. It generates whirlpools by spinning it's body. The whirlpools it makes are strong enough to swallow large boats. It weakens it's prey with these currents and then swallows them whole.

Strategy Using Seadra

Seadra is a pokemon that is now over-looked due to its evolution, Kingdra, which has a far superior amount of base stats(although special attack are the same on both pokemon) and the better type combination (Dragon/Water)
Seadra also lacks the ability swift swim, which would've proved helpful on this pokemon but it can learn agility instead, but using that would be a risk due to its low defenses. However, this doesn't stop it using special moves, since it has a decent special attack.
Surf, Ice beam, Dragonbreath, HP Electric, guess what you're supposed to do with these, that's right, sweep. Anyways, Dragonbreath's 30% chance of paralyzing is quite useful.
As a pokemon, Seadra has been relatively ignored due to its superior evolution, but that doesn't mean Seadra has anything majorly wrong with it, yeah, it may not be able to take a special hit, but it does have the ability to sweep.

EV Corner:

Max out the EVs in Speed & Special Attack for Seadra with any remaining in Special Defense
