Grimer (Japanese: ベトベター Betobetaa) is a Poison-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I. It becomes a Poison/Dark-type in Generation VII.

Biology

Physiology

Grimer was created when sludge in a dirty stream was exposed to the moon's X-rays. It is composed primarily of putrid, hardened sludge and grime. It smells incredibly foul, and can influence the abandonment of entire cities due to its polluting nature-even weeds don't grow where a Grimer has appeared. Grimer thrives in filthy areas, such as factories, garbage dumps, sewers and polluted water systems. It survives and matures by sucking up polluted sludge that is pumped out of factories, adding toxic waste to its already toxic girth.

Natural abilities

Grimer can have the ability Stench or the ability Sticky Hold. Stench decreases the chances of encountering a wild Pokémon when Grimer is the first party Pokémon. Sticky Hold prevents the theft of Grimer's held item. It enters sewers and other areas with great ease due to its rubbery and semi-viscous body; for example, it can enter barred-off areas by slipping between the narrow bars. If you stick your hand in a Grimer, it will be very hard to get it out.

Evolution

Grimer evolves into Muk at level 38.

Trivia

  • In the Sonic the Hedgehog continuity, Dr. Robotnik has an assistant called Grimer.
    • This is only in the Fleetway Comic Series in the UK.
  • Grimer and its next evolved form, Muk, are both homages to the monster Hedorah of the Japanese Godzilla Series.
  • Grimer and Alolan Grimer's colorings and shiny colorings are reversed. Normal Grimers color is purple while its shiny is green and vice-versa for Alolan Grimer.
