List of Pokémon (52–101)

List of Pokémon (52–101)


Pokémon has 649[1][2][3][4] (as of Pokémon Black and White) distinctive fictional species classified as the titular Pokémon. These creatures and entities reside throughout various locations of the fictional Pokémon universe and can be caught by humans designated as Pokémon Trainers often using devices called Poké Balls. These trainers use Pokémon for a variety of purposes, such as being pets and loyal companions and/or being pitted against other trained Pokémon in competitive Pokémon battles. Pokémon are potentially super-powered creatures that can employ a variety of talents such as generating fire or heat, martial arts, telekinesis, and so on. Through age and experience many of these species undergo a metamorphosis and transform into a similar but stronger species in a process referred to as Pokémon evolution.

This is a selected listing of fifty of the Pokémon species, arranged as they are in the main game series' National Pokédex.


Number: 052 Type: Normal Evolves from: None Evolves into: Persian


Number: 053 Type: Normal Evolves from: Meowth Evolves into: None

Persian (ペルシアン Perushian?) is a larger, stronger and faster cougar-like Pokémon that evolves from Meowth at level 28. It is popular as a pet due to its glossy fur, but they are often depicted as fickle, cruel and unimpressed by things. In the Pokémon anime and Pokémon Yellow Version, Giovanni, the leader of criminal organization Team Rocket and the Viridian City Gym Leader, is shown to have a Persian.


Number: 054 Type: Water Evolves from: None Evolves into: Golduck


Number: 055 Type: Water Evolves from: Psyduck Evolves into: None

Golduck (ゴルダック Gorudakku?) are large bipedal ducks, with blue skin and strong, webbed appendages that give them the ability to swim at high speeds. Due to their bluish color and webbed hands and feet, Golduck are sometimes mistaken for Kappa. They have more formidable psychic powers than their Psyduck stage, and they lose the headaches that they constantly suffer from. The gem on their heads glows when they use psychic powers as well as when they swim at full speed.

They live in fresh-water lakes and rivers, where they are seen gracefully swimming, especially at dusk. As one of the faster swimming Pokémon, they can out swim even the most athletic of humans, though they often train with swimmers. As they are able to swim in severe storms, they are sometimes found rescuing people lost at sea from danger. In Pokémon FireRed, the player trades a Golduck on Route 18 to get a Lickitung. In Pokémon Diamond, Golduck can be found in the Great Marsh. In Pokemon Silver, Golduck can be found in Silver cave.


Number: 056 Type: Fighting Evolves from: None Evolves into: Primeape

Mankey (マンキー Mankī?) is a monkey-like Pokémon of the fighting type that has a round pig-like snout that can be found in the grassy areas of Kanto and Johto. It resembles a large hairball with eyes, a snout, arms and legs. It is usually calm and somewhat mischievous, but if it gets angry, it can be very dangerous. Mankey will battle amongst each other if they get even remotely angry at the smallest of things, and are very quick. Mankey enjoy various fruit, such as honeydew melons.

In the anime, a Mankey stole Ash's trademark cap. After James kicked it, the Mankey soon evolved into a Primeape which Ash then caught after subduing its rampage with Charmander.

IGN editor "Pokémon of the Day Chick" praised Mankey's design, saying "he actually looks like a Pokémon as opposed to some freakish mini human".[5] GamesRadar editor Carolyn Gudmundson listed "Pig noses" as one of the most overused Pokémon designs, citing Mankey as an example. They further stated that "there's something really creepy about a "Pig Monkey" Pokémon."[6]


Number: 057 Type: Fighting Evolves from: Mankey Evolves into: None

Primeape (オコリザル?, Okorizaru) is a larger and stronger evolution of Mankey. Vicious and frenzied, even making eye contact will anger it. Once it starts to thrash about, it will never stop chasing its offender. Its frenzies are most dangerous when forcefully woken up, as it relentlessly chases the quarry while half-asleep. Primeape can be obtained when a Mankey reaches level 28 and evolves. Primeape can also be found in some grassy areas in Kanto and Johto. Primeape is incredibly fast and very skilled in any form of combat. It is known for getting very angry before a battle and boosting up it's stats.

It is caught by Ash Ketchum after evolving from a mischievous Mankey. He later gives it to a boxer to be raised into the best fighter it can be. It has never been referred to or used by Ash since.

Its name is a combination of the words "prime" and "ape," suggesting that this Pokémon and its pre-evolution, Mankey, organize themselves in a social hierarchy similar to monkeys. Its name also resembles the word primate, which is used to describe any animal in the man/monkey/ape family.


Number: 058 Type: Fire Evolves from: None Evolves into: Arcanine

Growlithe (ガーディ Gādi?, Gardie), called Flamie in the beta version, is known as the Puppy Pokémon. It has bright orange fur with black stripes. Its belly, tail, and fluff on top of its head are a cream color. Unlike its evolution, Growlithe has two claws on its forefeet, and its paw pads are brown (instead of pink). Growlithe are very friendly,[7] but protective of its territory, and will bark and bite to repel intruders.[8] If it smells something wrong, it will howl to force it out.[9] They are brave, and will fearlessly stand up to bigger foes.[10] It is loyal to its trainer, protecting them from harm.[11] Growlithe has a superb sense of smell, not forgetting any scent. It can determine the emotions of other living things.[12]

Growlithe appears in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Keep Going! Blazing Adventure Squad! as a one of the selectable player characters. Growlithe first appeared in the anime in The Flame Pokémon-athon. This Puppy Pokémon showed up when Ash was making an attempt to attack a herd of Tauros while at a Pokémon Ranch. James had a pet Growlithe named Growlie when he was a child. He left it behind when he ran away from home at a young age. Growlithe and its evolved form have also been used as police dogs by Officer Jenny. In Pokémon Adventures, Blaine is seen to have a Growlithe, which he uses to track the smell given off by the cloth fragments William took from a frozen form of Red at Mt. Moon.


Number: 059 Type: Fire Evolves from: Growlithe Evolves into: None


Number: 060 Type: Water Evolves from: None Evolves into: Poliwhirl

Poliwag (ニョロモ?, Nyoromo), known as the Tadpole Pokémon, has blue skin with large eyes and a small pink mouth. The swirl on the stomach is semi-transparent, and the insides are visible through it.[13] The swirl pattern differs by area depending on its location compared to the equator.[14][15] Because it is new to having legs, it does not walk easily, and prefers swimming.[16] Poliwag's skin is very thin, but is flexible enough for fangs to bounce off.[17]

In the video games, Poliwag is found by fishing or surfing in several water areas in Kanto and Johto. In Pokémon Pinball, a Poliwag appears on the Blue Table, and earns the player points when it is hit. In the anime, Misty obtained a Poliwag during the Orange Islands saga, which evolved into Poliwhirl and then Politoed. Max used a Poliwag at a Pokémon Trainer's School, and lost to a Magby. In the Pokémon Adventures manga, a Poliwag first appeared as one of the Pokémon who escaped from Professor Oak's lab.


Number: 061 Type: Water Evolves from: Poliwag Evolves into: Poliwrath/Politoed

Poliwhirl (ニョロゾ?, Nyorozo), known as the Tadpole Pokémon, is a large, amphibious, froglet-like Pokémon. Its hands make it seem as though it is wearing white boxing gloves. It is capable of living in or out of water; in order to live out of water, it must sweat to keep its body slimy.[18] It prefers to live underwater in ponds where there is less danger.[19] In battle, it subtly undulates the spiral-shape on its belly to put the foe to sleep, using a type of hypnosis.[20] It is also capable of easily escaping the grasp of foes due to its greasy skin.[21]

As a child, Satoshi Tajiri collected insects and other small animals around his Machida, Tokyo home. Tajiri drew inspiration for Poliwhirl from the tadpoles that he collected; the swirl on the Pokémon's stomach comes from Tajiri's memories of being able to see tadpoles' intestines through their transparent skin.[22] Poliwhirl's English name came from a combination of the word "tadpole" and "whirl"; the later half of the animal name was combined with the symbol on Poliwhirl's stomach.[23]

In the video games, Poliwhirl is a Pokémon commonly found while fishing or surfing, and can evolve into either of two other Pokémon: Poliwrath with the use of a water stone,[24] or Politoed when Poliwhirl is traded to another game while holding a king's rock.[25] In the Pokémon anime, Misty had a Poliwhirl in the Johto series, which later evolved into Politoed. In the Pokémon Adventures manga, a Poliwhirl named Poli was Red's first Pokémon and was obtained as a Poliwag before the first chapter. Along with Pika and Saur, it is one of Red's most frequently used Pokémon. In Buzz Off, Electabuzz!, Poli evolves into Poliwrath to save Red from drowning after touching a Water Stone, one of the four stones speculated to be at the bottom of Vermilion Harbor. During this, Red has a flashback to his little Poliwag evolving to save him from drowning before.

Poliwhirl has been one of the most marketed of all the Pokémon.[26] It was featured, along with Pikachu, Charmander, and Gengar, in a line of chewable vitamins shaped like Pokémon characters.[27] It was one of the Pokémon that Sensodyne turned into a child's toothbrush.[28]

IGN strongly criticized Poliwhirl, especially the extensive use of the Pokémon by marketers. They argued that it is neither cute nor useful, and that it is not popular among most Pokémon fans.[26] The reviewer went as far as to say, "when are you PR people going to figure out that nobody likes Poliwhirl? It barely even qualifies as having a face!"[26] They expressed a desire "to kick his designers", and warned against using Poliwhirl in any type of serious battle situation.[26] Another reviewer called Poliwhirl "mediocre."[23] GameDaily named Poliwhirl the eighth weirdest looking Pokémon, citing its odd swirl and what they saw as its hypnotizing properties.[29] Time Magazine called Poliwhirl a "disk with bulging eyes."[30] Author Loredana Lipperini commented that cynics described Poliwhirl as a "swivel with purple gloves".[31]


Number: 062 Type: Water/Fighting Evolves from: Poliwhirl Evolves into: None

Poliwrath (ニョロボン?, Nyorobon), known as the Tadpole Pokémon, is the evolution of Poliwhirl. It has thicker arms, darker skin, and a slightly differently-shaped "head area," giving more of the impression that it is like a boxer. Poliwrath is a master swimmer in every respect, due to its highly developed body and arm muscles that never fatigue regardless of use. Thanks to its incredible stamina, Poliwrath is said to be physically able to swim the entire diameter of the Pacific Ocean without obvious effort,[32] and its swimming efficiency allows it to easily overtake the best human swimmers in any controlled competition.[33] Although it is more skilled in the water, it lives on land.[34]

Poliwrath has made several appearances in the Pokémon anime, first appearing in "The Battling Eevee Brothers" and later as an opponent in "Charizard Chills" and "Hook, Line, and Sinker." Chuck used a Poliwrath against Ash in his Gym Battle in Machoke, Machoke Man. In the Pokémon Adventures manga, a Poliwrath named Poli was Red's first Pokémon and was obtained as a Poliwag before the first chapter. Along with Pika and Saur, it is one of Red's most frequently used Pokémon. In Buzz Off, Electabuzz!, Poli evolves into Poliwrath to save Red from drowning after touching a Water Stone, one of the four stones speculated to be at the bottom of Vermilion Harbor. At the Pokémon League, Poli and Pika helped Saur defeat Blue's Charizard. During the Gold arc, Red does not carry Poli on his team with him, enabling him to use both Green's Blastoise and Blue's Charizard. Poli's Damp ability combined with Deoxys's use of Skill Swap enabled Red to counter Carr's exploding Forretress in the FRLG arc.

GamesRadar criticized the developers for creating a tadpole Pokémon that stays as a tadpole into its 3rd evolution.[35]


Number: 063 Type: Psychic Evolves from: None Evolves into: Kadabra


Number: 64 Type: Psychic Evolves from: Abra Evolves into: Alakazam


Number: 65 Type: Psychic Evolves from: Kadabra Evolves into: None


Number: 66 Type: Fighting Evolves from: None Evolves into: Machoke


Number: 67 Type: Fighting Evolves from: Machop Evolves into: Machamp


Number: 68 Type: Fighting Evolves from: Machoke Evolves into: None


Number: 69 Type: Grass/Poison Evolves from: None Evolves into: Weepinbell

Bellsprout (マダツボミ?, Madatsubomi) is a carnivorous, flower-like Pokémon, hunting small insects with blinding agility despite its skinny body. It is said to ensnare its prey in its vines and devour it, and can also spit a highly corrosive fluid that can melt even iron. Bellsprout's preferred habitat is warm and humid climates, since it can absorb more moisture from the ground by planting its root-like feet. In battle, Bellsprout can take advantage of its flexibility to bend and sway its way out of the range of its opponent's attacks, no matter how powerful they may be.

In the video games, Bellsprout is commonly found among grassy routes, and is used by many Trainers who favor the Grass-type. In Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal, the Sprout Tower in Violet City is dedicated to Bellsprout.

Bellsprout has appeared numerous times in the anime series, most notably in "The Fourth Round Rumble," where Ash battled one during the Indigo League.


Number: 70 Type: Grass/Poison Evolves from: Bellsprout Evolves into: Victreebel

Weepinbell (ウツドン?, Utsudon) is a bell-like Pokémon that resembles its pre-evolution Bellsprout, but without the vines and leaves. Instead of walking, it hops along or hangs on to tree branches and vines using the large hook on its rear end. Weepinbell immobilizes its enemies by using Poisonpowder and Acid. It will swallow anything that moves and digest it within its stomach, and produces a neutralizing fluid to keep from being affected by its own strong stomach acids. If its prey is larger than it, it will first use sharp leaves to slice it up before eating.

Players can obtain a Weepinbell by catching it in the wild, evolving Bellsprout upon reaching level 21, or Snagging a Shadow Weepinbell in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness. In Pokémon Ranger, enemy Weepinbell can swallow the protagonist whole, knocking him or her back to the beginning of the area.

Weepinbell has appeared in relatively few episodes in the Pokémon anime. It first appeared in "The School of Hard Knocks," and later when Celadon City Gym Leader Erika battled Ash with one. James' Victreebel was also briefly seen as a Weepinbell.


Number: 71 Type: Grass/Poison Evolves from: Weepinbell Evolves into: None

Victreebel (ウツボット Utsubotto?, Utsubot) is a carnivorous Pokémon based on the pitcher plant. It lulls its prey with a sweet, honey-like scent, and also the vine on its head (which waves as if it were an animal) before digesting it with powerful stomach acids that can even dissolve bone. Normally, its prey are bugs, but it has been known to attack and consume small animals. Victreebel are said to live in huge colonies in the jungle, but those who have ventured to find them have never returned. Victreebel horde food, usually small birds and rodents, and collect Leaf Stones to perform strange evolution rituals at night to help Weepinbell become more Victreebel. In the video games, Victreebel cannot be caught in the wild in any of the Pokémon video games; it must be evolved from Weepinbell with a Leaf Stone.

In the anime, James of Team Rocket had a Weepinbell which evolved into Victreebel in the episode "The Breeding Center Secret." As a running gag, it usually tried to eat him as soon as it emerged from its Poké Ball (this tradition of James's Grass-type Pokémon hurting him was continued by Cacnea in the Advanced Generation series, and Carnivine in the Diamond and Pearl series). While most Pokémon speak in a vocabulary consisting of its own name, Victreebel, like Lapras, communicates through loud, high-pitched shrieks.


Number: 72 Type: Water/Poison Evolves from: None Evolves into: Tentacruel

Tentacool (メノクラゲ?, Menokurage) is an aquatic Pokémon based on the box jellyfish. It drifts aimlessly wherever the ocean currents take it, sometimes ending up in shallow waters where it may be accidentally caught in fishing lines. Tentacool may also end up stuck on beaches when low tide comes; since its body is largely composed of water, it will shrivel up, risking death from dehydration if it stays out of the sea for too long. Tentacool has two main weapons. At the tips of its tentacles are toxic feelers, which it uses to stab anything it touches with stinging acid. Due to its excellent camouflage in the water, Tentacool can often remain undetected by swimmers right up to the moment it stings them. Tentacool's gelatinous, watery body can also absorb sunlight and refract it within, producing beam energy it shoots from its crystal-like eyes.

Tentacool is available in all Pokémon games to date. It is extremely common, especially while surfing on sea routes, and is in almost every single body of water.

In the anime, Tentacool was featured in the episode "Tentacool and Tentacruel" in which a raging mob of the titular Pokémon attacked the Porta Vista resort. The episode was banned in the US after the attacks on September 11, 2001 due to its scenes depicting Tentacools and Tentacruels destroying buildings at a seaside resort (the ban was later lifted).


Number: 73 Type: Water/Poison Evolves from: Tentacool Evolves into: None

Tentacruel (ドククラゲ Dokukurage?), called Man-O-War in the Beta, is known as the Jellyfish Pokémon. The evolution of Tentacool, Tentacruel are large, blue jellyfish-like Pokémon with 80 poisonous tentacles that can stretch and contract freely by absorbing water.[36][37] Their tentacles are normally kept short, but are extended to ensnare and immobilize prey.[38] Tentacruel have large red orbs on their head that glow before using an ultrasonic blast, which causes rough waves around it.[39] They live on rock formations on the ocean floor.[40]

In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team and Red Rescue Team, Tentacruel is a member of Team Constrictor. In the anime, a giant Tentacruel attacks the city of Porta Vista in the once banned episode Tentacool and Tentacruel. Multiple Tentacruel appeared in Viva Las Lapras, under the ownership of the pirate Captain Crook. A group of Tentacruel appear in DP190. Tentacruel are owned by multiple trainers such as Marina, Cassidy, and Juan. In the Pokémon Adventures manga, wild Tentacruel are first seen in "Wake Up--You’re Snorlax!." More prominently, it is seen in the possession of various villains such as Koga of the Team Rocket triad and Archie.

Number: 80 Type: Water/Psychic Evolves from: Slowpoke Evolves into: None


Number: 081 Type: Electric/Steel Evolves from: None Evolves into: Magneton

Magnemite (コイル Koiru?, Coil), known as the Magnet Pokémon, is a solid ball of metal with a pair of horseshoe magnets on either side, as well as a single, lidless eye. It has a pair of screws protruding from below the eye, and a large screw forming a sort of "cap" on top of its head. It floats through the air, through a sort of electromagnetic antigravity field generated by the two magnets on either side of its body.[41] Magnemite tend to crowd around generators and power plants, and an individual Magnemite might be attracted to someone with a pocket radio or a Pokégear.[42] The magnets on the side of its body are very powerful, and strengthen by spinning faster.[43][44] A trio of Magnemite may come together to create their evolved form, Magneton. Its name comes from the words "magnet" and "mite".[45]

In Pokémon Red and Blue, Magnemite were introduced as Electric-Type Pokémon, but with the introduction of the Steel-Type in Pokémon Gold and Silver, it was changed to an Electric and Steel-Type Pokémon. They evolve into Magneton after gaining enough experience in battle, and can then evolve into Magnezone by leveling up in certain areas in Sinnoh or Unova. In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, A group of Magnemite are the clients of the game's second mission, sending the player to save their friend who is trapped in Thunderwave Cave. One of the rescued Magnemite decides to join the rescue team a couple of days later.

In the anime, Magnemite first appeared in Sparks Fly for Magnemite. Ash and friends were in Gringey City while the power went out. When they were looking around for the cause of the power outage, a lone Magnemite showed up and was feeling attracted to Ash's Pikachu, who was having a cold. When a group of Grimer and its Muk leader were chasing Ash, a group of Magnemite and Magneton helped to fight them off. In Get Along, Little Pokémon, Ash, Misty and Tracey met a man named Ethan who used Magnemite to harness electrical energy from bolts of lightning during thunderstorms and then the electrical energy would be given to towns that were without power. A group of Magnemite, and a Magneton, appeared as security guards in Current Events as they first attacked Team Rocket who snuck into a power station guarded entirely by Pokémon. Ash has battled two Gym Leaders with Magnemite: Jasmine in Nerves of Steelix and Wattson in Watt's with Wattson?.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga, Magnemite first appears aboard the S.S. Anne as many of the Pokémon ready to attack Red. Later, Lt. Surge uses a Magnemite to fight Morty's Misdreavus, using electromagnetism to shield attacks as well as fire Zap Cannon.

IGN called Magnemite "one of the weirdest looking Pokemon around", and criticized the sound it makes.[45] GamesRadar called it and its evolutions "excellent Electric types to consider".[46] IGN editor "Pokémon of the Day Chick" stated that "in a world full of adorable furry animals and ferocious horned monsters, it's hard for a tiny electric eyeball to find much love."[47] Destructiod's Jim Sterling called Magnemite one of the 30 "rubbish Pokémon" in Red and Blue and wrote that Magnemite was not a Pokémon, but a robot.[48]


Number: 082 Type: Electric/Steel Evolves from: Magnemite Evolves into: Magnezone

Magneton (レアコイル Reakoiru?, Rarecoil) is composed of 3 Magnemite linked together by a strong magnetic force.[49] It levitates on an electromagnetic anti-gravity field like its pre-evolution, Magnemite. Its electromagnetic powers are so strong that it has been known to wreck electronics and precision equipment and cause city-wide blackouts, leading some towns to pass laws requiring that Magnetons be kept in Poké Balls at all times. A Magneton is, in essence, three Magnemites connected through magnetism. Magnetons frequently appear whenever sunspots flare up. At high voltage, a Magneton can discharge powerful waves of electromagnetism and radio waves that can raise the temperature by 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit within a 3300-ft radius of any location.


Number: 083 Type: Normal/Flying Does not evolve


Number: 084 Type: Normal/Flying Evolves from: None Evolves into: Dodrio

Doduo (ドードー Dōdō?, Dodo) resembles an ostrich or a roadrunner, with sharp beaks and an extra head. It may also be based on the kiwi. Its name is a portmanteau of the words dodo, the extinct flightless bird, and duo, in reference to its two heads. Doduo's tracks are huge and very distinctive. It inhabits and races across grass-covered plains at 60 mph. It is well-adapted to dry and arid climates. Doduo's second head is said to have been formed by a sudden mutation thousands of years ago. Both heads normally contain identical brains, although rare cases have been observed where a Doduo has two distinctly different brains.

Interestingly, Doduo can be caught in the wild in all of the Pokémon video games. Doduo can also be found in Pokémon Snap. In the Pokémon anime episode "Bad to the Bone," Jessie of Team Rocket battles a Doduo with her Arbok. The battle is interrupted when the Doduo's heads begin to fight with each other. In Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, the player can ride a Doduo to get around faster.


Number: 085 Type: Normal/Flying Evolves from: Doduo Evolves into: None

Dodrio (ドードリオ Dōdorio?, Dodrio) is a flightless bird Pokémon with long, powerful legs. Dodrio resembles an ostrich, and its movement is reminiscent of the roadrunner. Its name is a portmanteau of the words dodo, the extinct flightless bird, and trio, in reference to its three heads.

As the evolved form of the two-headed Doduo, Dodrio has three heads, the third head which is said to be formed by one of Doduo's heads splitting during evolution. Each one of the heads constantly expresses a different emotion: joy, sadness, and anger. Having three heads allows Dodrio to collect more information from its surroundings, develop complex plans, and remain alert at all times by keeping watch in three different directions. On the other hand, a Dodrio's three heads are commonly known to squabble amongst themselves, probably due to each one having a different attitude. Though Dodrio struggles to fly, it has three sets of hearts and lungs to match its heads, granting it extraordinary stamina while running at high speed. Like its pre-evolution Doduo, it inhabits dry, grassy plains.

In the video games, Dodrio are often used by Bird Keepers and Triathletes practicing in running. In Pokémon Ranger, a Dodrio is the partner of the Fall City Ranger Leader Joel. Dodrio also features in the Pokémon Stadium games as Dodrio Mode, which speeds up the games' GameBoy emulator, and in FireRed, LeafGreen, and Emerald in the mini-game Dodrio Berry-Picking.

In the Pokémon anime, Dodrio first appeared on the morning of the first episode, crowing in place of a rooster. Dario used one in the episode "The Flame Pokémon-athon," and Violet City Gym Leader Falkner battled Ash's Pikachu with one. Gary Oak also evolved his Doduo into a Dodrio.


Number: 086 Type: Water Evolves from: None Evolves into: Dewgong

Seel (パウワウ Pauwau?, Pawou) are well suited to life in the most frigid reaches of the planet. They are nocturnal; in the daytime they are seen asleep on the seabed in shallow water. When hunting, Seel stay in the ocean because they cannot walk on land. Instead, they swim in a rather graceful fashion literally underneath sheets of ice floating on the water’s surface in their environment in search of their prey. Even though the air is a frigid 14 degrees Fahrenheit and the water itself is a somewhat less chilling 40 degrees, their fur hides are thick enough to insulate Seel from either degree of cold and their nostrils automatically close by themselves to ensure their ability to remain underwater. When they need to take in air, they will use their hard horns to punch holes through the ice sheet above and pop their heads out.


Number: 087 Type: Water/Ice Evolves from: Seel Evolves into: None

For the actual animal upon which it is based, see Dugong

Dewgong (ジュゴン?, Jugon) is derived from the real animal which has a similar, but much larger, body: the dugong. In the beta versions of Red/Blue, Dewgong's name was originally going to be Manaty, a reference to the manatee. The Pokémon first appears in the arsenal of a trainer named "Allison" outside of Saffron City, who cites her similar body fat percentage as a reason for her choosing to utilize the Water/Ice type Pokémon. Dewgong is the evolved form of Seel. Pryce, the Gym Leader of Mahogany Town uses a Dewgong.


Number: 088 Type: Poison Evolves from: None Evolves into: Muk


Number: 089 Type: Poison Evolves from: Grimer Evolves into: None


Number: 090 Type: Water Evolves from: None Evolves into: Cloyster (Water Stone)

Shellder (シェルダー Sherudā?) is a cheeky bivalve (oyster or clam) Pokémon; it constantly pokes its tongue out at anybody, whether friend or foe. It will also spit on foes. This tends to antagonize enemies into a rage. Its shell is very strong, apparently harder than a diamond, though only made of a single, smooth layer. Shellder becomes vulnerable when the enemy can attack its insides. When not protecting itself in battle, it will attack by squirting water at the foe. As a last resort, it will clamp the foe with its powerful shell. However, this leaves Shellder vulnerable to an attack, hence, it is rarely used. As a total last resort, Shellder may use Selfdestruct or Explosion to knock itself and the enemy out. Shellder travels by rapidly opening and closing its shell, propelling it in the opposite direction of its shell through the water. Shellder are incapable of travel on land, unless in a Poké Ball. It's tongue is soft and pink, and must be sticky enough to catch prey on the seafloor. Shellder is integral to the evolution of Slowpoke as is the body part of Slowpoke to which Shellder bites on: its tail. Once Shellder bites the Slowpoke's tail, the two will evolve into a single Pokémon, Slowbro. If Shellder instead attaches itself to Slowpoke's head, it will create Slowking, a notably smarter Pokémon than the other two. This evolution can be reversed if Shellder falls off Slowbro's tail or Slowking's head. The evolution benefits both Pokémon: Slowpoke can now walk on its hind legs and Shellder can both eat the scraps of the Slowpoke, and finally move on land. The newly attached Shellder looks very different from its previous purple form, since it changes form when it bites.


Number: 091 Type: Water/Ice Evolves from: Shelder Evolves into: None

Cloyster (パルシェン Parushen?, Parshen) are bivalve Pokémon, guarded by an extremely strong, multi-layered shell. The shell is strong enough to withstand a bomb explosion and cannot be pried open by even those with superior strength. Nobody has seen their dark innards, which are Cloyster's weak spot as they are very soft and vulnerable. They launch thick, powerful spikes at enemies in battle, as well as to capture prey. These spikes are even stronger than their shell. Cloyster can also crush prey by clamping their thick shell shut onto them. When being attacked, they simply shut their shells to avoid further damage. To travel through water, they swim by swallowing water and jetting it out opposite to the direction they want to move. Evolves from Shelder with the use of a Water Stone.


Number: 092 Type: Ghost/Poison Evolves from: None Evolves into: Haunter (lvl 25)

Gastly (ゴース Gōsu?, Ghos), known as the Gas Pokémon, was called Spirit in the beta versions of Red and Blue. Its name comes from the word "Ghastly."[50] Gastly appears to be nothing more than a black ball of ghostly matter that is surrounded by a purple glow of smog. Gastly has big, white eyes and a mouth with a pair of fangs in it. Due to having a body made of gas, Gastly can slip into any place it wants.[51] However, Gastly's body will dwindle away when exposed to a strong wind.[51] Because of this, groups of them shall gather under the eaves of houses to prevent being blown away.[52] A Gastly is capable of toppling an Indian Elephant within two seconds by enveloping it in poisonous gas.[53] They are also proficient at sneaking up on unsuspecting prey and putting it to sleep or poisoning it through its skin.[54] As Gastly's body is blown away by wind Gastly live in old, dilapidated buildings,[55] and can also be found at cemeteries.

In the anime, Gastly first appeared in The Ghost of Maiden's Peak. This Gastly had the ability to talk and shape-shift. He kept posing himself as the spirit of the woman which legend said turned to stone after many years of waiting for her love to return to her. Gastly kept on toying with the minds of young men. The first time a regular Gastly appeared was in The Tower of Terror. Ash and his friends went to Lavender Town in search of a Ghost-type Pokémon to aid Ash in defeating Sabrina. Morty used a Gastly to battle Ash in From Ghost to Ghost. A pair of Gastly were among a group of Ghost Pokémon living in an abandoned mine in Fear Factor Phony. The Ghost Pokémon couldn't stand the partying Psychic Pokémon that lived in the nearby town, so they created a Haunter-like illusion to scare everyone away.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga, Gastly first appears possessing the corpses of dead Pokémon in Pokémon Tower. Red's Bulbasaur manages to defeat it by sucking up the surrounding air with its bulb, along with Gastly's gaseous form, and expelling it in a SolarBeam. Gastly also forms as part of the Ghost-type army Agatha sends out to attack the Gym Leaders. The Masked Man also used a Gastly in his team to capture Celebi, due to its type advantage. It was purposed to possess intruders that entered the Ilex Forest. Later, during the fight at the Indigo Stadium, it took out Suicune using its Curse technique, locking Suicune and Misty inside Suicune's crystal wall. It was later defeated by Eusine's Haunter.

GamesRadar described Gastly, and its evolutions as "highly useful", further describing its abilities and design as "top shelf".[56][57] IGN commented that due to a lack of Ghost type Pokémon, passing up Gastly was a "sin."[50] Author Loredana Lipperini described Gastly as a "sticky and terrifying apparition".[31]

Krabby (クラブ Kurabu?, Crab) is a crab with large pincers. Krabby is an omnivore and a scavenger; it rarely hunts for itself. It can also act as a filter feeder by harmonizing bacteria in the sand, but this is rare. It is territorial, and in beaches where there is little food, fights between Krabby are common. Krabby also uses camouflage; it can form mucus sacs about itself if threatened, making it seem larger or making it harder to spot against sea sand. It is usually very small, but it makes up by its aggressiveness.

Krabby first appeared at a beach in episode 13, Mystery At The Lighthouse, when Ash Ketchum wanted to prove that he could catch a Pokémon alone. After the capture (which involved Krabby attacking Ash's finger), it was automatically transferred to Professor Oak's lab, because Ash already had six Pokémon with him. To Ash's great surprise, Gary had also caught another Krabby, which was much larger than his. Ash used Krabby in his first battle at the Indigo Tournament. Krabby won against an Exeggutor and evolved into Kingler.

Kingler (キングラー Kingurā?) is a crab with a single humongous claw. The claw grew to this size to protect Kingler from possible predators. It has the crushing force of 10,000 psi, but it comes at a price. The claw is very heavy, forcing Kingler to spend much of its time in the water, where the claw's buoyancy makes it lighter. However, due to this immense size and weight, Kingler can use the claw as a club-like weapon, the result of which is its signature attack, Crabhammer. However, Kingler can transition from water to land with relative ease, and when above water, it communicates with others of its species by waving its claw. It has four legs, which it uses to scuttle around. Its claw is normally kept low to the ground in order for Kingler to keep its stamina up.

In the anime, Ash's Krabby evolved into Kingler during the 1st round of the Indigo League. Kingler was barely used during his adventures in Kanto and Johto, although it was also used in the Whirlpool Tournament. Ash was also going to use Kingler in the Johto League, but an accident caused by three Voltorb injured Kingler, and therefore it couldn't battle. Ash's Kingler still lives at Professor Oak's Lab.

Voltorb (ビリリダマ?, Biriridama) are aggressive red and white ball shaped Pokémon that looks strikingly similar to a Poké Ball. Although it was discovered shortly after Poké Balls were invented, some believe there is a connection. Though roughly ten times larger, many trainers get a surprise when they pick one up thinking it is a Poké Ball. The strength of their explosions is dependent on how much electricity they store in their bodies. When jarred or angered, a Voltorb can and will explode, causing massive damage to their aggressor and themselves. It is so unstable that even the slightest bump in the road will make it explode spontaneously. Voltorb do not have a mouth, but do have two eyes that are normally slanted into an aggressive stare.

In Pokémon Stadium, Voltorb featured in its own mini game, alongside Pikachu, called "Thundering Dynamo", in which players need to press the button corresponding to the lightbulb's color to charge up electricity.


Number: 101 Type: Electric Evolves from: Voltorb Evolves into: None

Electrode (マルマイン Marumain?, Marumine), known as the Ball Pokémon, is a red and white ball shaped Pokémon that looks strikingly similar to a Pokéball with its colors reversed (white on top and red on bottom instead of red on top and white on bottom, like Voltorb). They are known to explode at the slightest shock and without warning. Electrode feed on and store electricity from power plants and lightning storms, but rarely do they use it to attack foes. It instead uses its stored electric to increase its rolling speed. The amount of electricity in an Electrode is relative to how powerful its explosions are. The stored energy also generates strong static electricity around Electrode's body, sometimes paralyzing enemies on contact. If it is bored, it often amuses itself by exploding. Electrode has two beady eyes and an almost nonstop grin.

Electrode appears in Super Smash Bros., Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl, where it explodes soon after coming out of its Poké Ball. In Brawl, Electrode will sometimes be a dud, and not explode. This allows it to be picked up and thrown. It can be picked up and thrown as well in Melee and Brawl when it turns white before it explodes.
