Koffing (Japanese: ドガース Dogāsu) is a Poison-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.



Koffing is a Poison Gas Pokémon. Its body is cloud-shaped with a skull and crossbones on the lower parts of its body. It has openings that allow gases to escape. A Koffing will spew a harmless gas if its happy, and a poisonous gas if it's angry.


Koffing mainly eats rotten kitchen garbage.

Special abilities

Koffing have the ability Levitate. Levitate causes all Ground-type moves to miss Koffing. Lighter-than-air gases in its body keep it aloft. The gases not only smell, they are also explosive. Koffing's signature attack is Poison Gas.


Koffing evolves into Weezing at Level 35.
