Wailord (Japanese: ホエルオー Hoeruoo) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III. It is known for being the biggest Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

Wailord is an immense, blue, whale-like Pokémon with small black eyes and a wide mouth filled with baleen-like teeth. It has a round, blimp-like body with two pairs of fins on either side and a small crescent-shaped tail fluke. Its underbelly is cream with vertical stripes running through it, while its back as a series of small white spots running down its length.

Behavior

Wailord is the largest Pokémon of all, and travels in pods across great expanses of the ocean. Despite its immense size it is surprisingly light, allowing it to floar on water. It herds shoals of small prey into a ball and swallows them whole, with its favorite food being Wishiwashi.

Evolution

Wailord is the evolved form of Wailmer starting at level 40.

Trivia

  • Wailord has the highest amount of HP out of all Water-type Pokémon.
  • It is the biggest of all Pokémon.
  • Despite its immense girth Wailord is notoriously light for its size, at only 398 kg. This would in fact make it less dense than air.
  • Wailord's inclusion in the Field Egg Group allows it to breed with much smaller Pokémon, notably Skitty.
  • Despite being the biggest Pokémon being at 47'07", real life blue whales (the animal Wailord is based on) can grow to over 100 feet tall.

Origin

Wailord's name derives from "whale", the animal, and "lord", a reference to its size.
