Garchomp (Japanese: ガブリアス Gaburiasu) is a Dragon/Ground-type Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

Garchomp is a bipedal shark-like Pokemon colored mostly red and dark blue. On its head it possesses two horn-like appendages and a star-like yellow mark on its snout. Its arms have one claw each, and triangular fins emerge from its elbows and back.

Upon Mega Evolution, its claws extend into scythes and its body is covered in more spikes with two red spikes.

Shiny Garchomp is colored mostly orange and dark green. As Mega Garchomp, its body becomes Pink and Purple with two pink spikes.

Gender differences

Male Garchomp have a notch on their dorsal fin.

Behavior

Garchomp are relentless pursuit predators that chase down their prey while never allowing them to escape. They are seldom seen in the wild as they live in caves. They are loyal and friendly towards their trainers though, as demonstrated by Prof. Sycamore's Garchomp in the anime.

Evolution

Garchomp is the final evolution of Gible. Gabite evolves into this Pokémon at level 48. Garchomp can further evolve into Mega Garchomp by using its Garchompite.

Appearances

Anime

Main article: Cynthia's Garchomp

Cynthia's Garchomp made her anime debut in Top- Down Training! where she battled Paul. Garchomp is Cynthia's main Pokemon and she releases her to assist Ash and the group to disband Team Galactic. In the Best Wishes series, she released her again to aid Iris' Dragonite, Ridley's Golurk and Cilan's Pansage to fight against Thundurus, Tornadus and Landorus in both their original and Therian forms while trying to thwart Team Rocket's Operation Tempest which proves successful when Ash's Pikachu destroys the platform that everyone is standing using its amplified Electro Ball.

Another Garchomp appeared in Pokémon Summer Academy. Professor Sycamore's Garchomp appeared in Lumiose City Pursuit! when Team Rocket made it out of control. She is Professor Sycamore's main Pokemon and serves as his research experiment at his lab. Later when James and Professor Sycamore fight for the Key Stone to make Garchomp mega evolves into a Mega Garchomp after they capture her along with her Mega Stone. Garchomp still chooses Professor Sycamore as her Trainer in her mega form and he uses this to blast Team Rocket away with its powerful abilities.

Trivia

  • This Pokémon has the same star shape on its forehead as Sharpedo.
  • Garchomp is the last non-legendary Dragon-type Pokémon in Generation IV.
  • Garchamp is the only Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon with a gender difference.
  • Despite Pokédex entries stating that Garchomp can fly, it can not learn the HM Fly. It is also Dragon/Ground type and not Dragon/Flying type. In the anime it is shown flying, however.
  • Garchomp is the strongest Pseudo-legendary Pokémon once it Mega Evolves.
  • Despite its resemblance to a shark and Sharpedo, it is weak against Water-types.

Origins

Garchomp combines features of theropod dinosaurs and sharks. The two protusions on Garchomp's head resemble the eye stalks of a hammerhead shark. The position it makes while flying and its ability to hover in mid-air while flying makes it similar to a fighter-jet.

Etymology

Its name is derived from the word "gargoyle" (a mythic and devilish reptile made from stone) and the word "chomp".
