Gible (Japanese: フカマル Fukamaru) is a dual Dragon/Ground-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

Biology

Physiology

Gible is a small, blue, bipedal dragon-like Pokemon. It lacks a neck but has a large mouth, filled with sharp teeth. It has two horns on its head, striped blue in the middle and a large dorsal fin. It has a red underbelly and a small tail on its back.

Physiology

Gible appears to be based on a land shark and is even coldblooded. It can burrow through the earth as easily as a Sharpedo swims through water. It has an enormous mouth and strong jaws that allow it to chew through anything, and it also appears to be able to digest anything.

Gender differences

Male Gible have a notch in their dorsal fin.

Behavior

Gible loves to bite anything, and that can be a painful for its trainer if the trainer gets bitten themselves. This habit of biting anything is probably instinctive, and very hard to train them to control their urges. It is a strong Pokémon in battle, but unfortunately it often hurts itself due to its own clumsiness.

Natural abilities

Their scales have been known to cure most illnesses, even the ones thought to be incurable.

Evolution

Once Gible is raised to Level 24, it evolves into Gabite. When Gabite's level is raised to 48, it will then evolve into Garchomp.

Appearances

Anime

Khoury captured a Gible in A Rivalry To Gible On! while traveling with Ash and co. in Sinnoh. While Ash captured one in Gotta Get a Gible! Gible, like May's Munchlax, has a massive appetite and eats pretty much everything it can chew. Also he is very relaxed and non-stressful most of the time. His Gible fought in the Sinnoh League against Tobias' Darkrai but lost. Iris caught a Gible in Blackthorn City after traveling with Ash and Cilan. Gible appeared multiple times in The Rise of Darkrai.

Trivia

Origins

The name Gible may come from the words 'ground' and 'nibble'. Alternatively, Fukamaru may be a combination of fuka, shark, and maru, round.
