Trivia

  • In Super Smash Bros., Gulpin is one of the Pokémon that can be freed from Pokéballs. During this time, it uses the move Swallow.

Etymology

The name "Gulpin" could have come from its eating habits. As shown in the anime, Gulpin tends to eat a lot and "gulps" its food whole. Its name could also be originated from the word "glutton". It could also be a mixture of "gulp" and "pin" as it has a giant pin/feather on its head.

Gulpin's face may be coming from the .3. Emoji.
