Ribiking is large frog-like Pokémon with a snail shell on its back. When one places their ear against Ribiking's shell, you can hear a whirring sound inside. This is the stored electricity in its shell. Its skin is a semi-transparent blue and it has two yellow markings on its face. Its eyes are small and black. Unlike its previous two forms, it can stand on its hind legs but only for a short amount of time.
It often finds itself fighting with Politoed and Poliwrath for dominance of the same territory. It constantly release electrical charges from its body into the lake it lives into to ensure only Pokémon of its species can live there.
