Nosepass (Japanese: ノズパス Nozupasu) is a Rock-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

Evolution

Nosepass evolves into Probopass when it levels up in Mt. Coronet,Chargestone Cave, Kalos Route 12 or Vast Poni Canyon

Biology

Physiology

Nosepass is a land-dwelling Pokémon. It has a dark-blue, egg-shaped body with a hole in it revealing two closed eyes. On the sides on its body, it has two holes which it also has on its hands and feet. It has a triangular, red nose that is used as a compass.

Behavior

Their magnetic noses make it so they are always facing north. In rocky areas, they are often seen standing still, only moving about 3/8 of an inch every year. If it gets stuck while turning and moving, it will spin and drill down underground. They can be seen as carnivorous due to their tendencies to pull prey forwards with magnetism, but sometimes, they occasionally pull forward pieces of metal and steel.
