Ambipom (Japanese: エテボース Eteboth) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Aipom via level-up while knowing Double Hit.

Biology

Physiology

Ambipom is a much larger and advanced form of Aipom. It has two tails, each with a red-tipped, three-fingered hand. These tails are much more versatile than Aipom's tail. Ambipom also has a nose that is much more visible than Aipom's.

Gender differences

The two strands of hair on top of Ambipom's head are longer on a female.

Special abilities

Ambipom can leap from tree to tree with brilliant speed. They also have solid Attack power and can use many devastating Fighting-type moves.

Behavior

To eat, Ambipom deftly shucks nuts with its two tails. Now that it has two hands on its tails, it only rarely uses its arms. Ambipom work in large colonies and make rings by linking their tails, apparently in friendship.

Habitat

Ambipom live in large colonies in heavily wooded areas along with their young, Aipom.

Diet

In the anime

Dawn's Aipom, formerly Ash's, evolved into an Ambipom in Journey to the Unown!. Upon evolving, it matured greatly, and became Dawn's most talented Pokémon for contests. She was later given to O to train in ping pong.

Trivia

  • Ambipom is the only Pokémon to have a base stat total of 482.
  • Out of all the Pokémon whose pre-evolved forms require a move to evolve, Ambipom's is the only one that needs to know Double Hit.

Origin

It appears to have been based on a monkey, with an exaggerated concept of a prehensile tail. It may also be considered to be a two-tailed lemur.

Name origin

Its English name comes from a combination of the prefix Ambi, meaning both, and what may be the word palm. It could also come from ambidexterous, meaning being both right- and left-handed, and palm.

The Japanese name may contain 猿 en, monkey, 手 te, hand, and the English word both, referring to the hands on its tail. エテ ete can also be taken to mean monkey.

In other languages

  • German: Ambidiffel - a combination of ambidexter (ambidextrous) and Griffel (the German name for Aipom).
  • French: Capidextre
  • Korean: 겟핸보숭 Get-han-bo-soong
