Swampert cannot learn Hydro Pump alone. You need to level up Mudkip as Mudkip until it learns Hydro Pump and then evolve it. Use Heartscale to bring back moves like earthquakes.
Swampert will learn Hydrocannon when evolving during the Community Day event, just like his aquatic starter brethren. Make sure to evolve your Mudkips into Swamperts within the timeframe (one hour after spawns end, so 8pm) to grab this move. Swampert isn’t that great without him.
In Pokemon Go, Hydro Cannon is a charged water attack with 90 power and a duration of 1.9 seconds. Similar to the main game series, only evolved starter Pokémon – Blastoise, Feraligatr, and Swampert – can learn it.
What Community Day move is Mudkip’s development learning? While evolving from Mudkip to Swampert on April 10th from 2pm to 7pm local time Swampert learns the Hydro Cannon charged attack. You can also use an Elite TM to teach legacy Community Day Only moves.
Hydrocannon on Swampert is optimal in Pokemon GO. However, for those who don’t have this option, some changes can be made to the moveset. Mud Shot should always be equipped as a fast attack, although Water Pistol isn’t a bad option.

Best Moveset for Swampert
The best moves for Swampert are Mud Shot and Hydro Cannon when attacking Pokémon in Gyms. This move combo has the highest overall DPS and is also the best move set for PVP battles.
Fortunately, most Pokémon that can learn Water Cannon can also learn Surfing. Interestingly, while Surf is more accurate than Hydro Pump, over the long term there is very little difference between the two. If you used each 100 times you would end up with about the same overall damage.
Hydraulic Pump is really strong and can do at least 220 attack points of damage if used twice in a row. This movement can be very inaccurate, sometimes making even hydro cannons more reliable, but with hydro pump you can still use them twice in a row to deal damage.
The axolotl is a strange creature native to Mexico. It is best known in its cartoon form as “Mudkip” in the Pokémon series. It is a species of salamander that does not complete its development in the adult stage – it remains a larva and never becomes adult.
Shiny Swampert is magenta, with purple fins and tail and a darker shade of orange.
If this is your first encounter with a Shiny Mudkip, we recommend using Golden Razz Berries and Ultra Balls to increase your chances of catching it. As shown above, the glossy versions of the Mudkip Evolution line have a purple tint rather than blue, and a slightly different shade of orange.
Swampert is an excellent Pokémon for PvE and PvP battles. His water and ground typing makes him a very unique typing that trainers are unlikely to see anywhere else. This typing only gives him a weakness, which is against Grass- and Pokémon-type attacks that deal him double super effective damage.
