Corsola (Japanese: サニーゴ Sunnygo) is a dual-type Water/Rock Pokémon.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

Corsola is a small, pink, roundish Pokémon with branch-like growths on its back. It has a white underside with four stubby legs. Corsola also has a pair of pink, stubby arms. Corsola's face appears to resemble Chansey's.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Corsola are known to have great regenerative powers. Unlike real coral which can take years to grow, if any of their horns are broken, it can grow back in as little as a single night. However, in order for this to function properly, they need clean ocean water, they cannot survive in polluted water.

Corsola is somewhat of a defensive Pokémon. It is capable of using self-healing attacks such as Recover and Aqua Ring. Corsola is also capable of a few stat-boosting moves such as Barrier, Calm Mind and Amnesia. Corsola is one of the few Pokémon that can learn Power Gem and also learns some Template:Type2 moves, such as Earth Power.

Behavior

Corsola often have a plucky, cheerful disposition and often form large social groups in their habitats. Occasionally these groups get so large that people may live atop them - as is the case in Pacifidlog Town. Although they gear towards the defensive side of battling, Corsola usually show a cheerful determination and are prepared to do the best that they can.

Habitat

Corsola live in the warm, southern seas. Their environment needs to have plenty of clear water in order to thrive.

Diet

Trivia

  • Corsola was the only Template:Type2 Pokémon that could learn Power Gem before Platinum, despite Power Gem being a Rock-type move.
  • Corsola is the only non-Grass Pokémon to learn Nature Power.
  • Corsola is the only non-Grass Pokémon to learn Ingrain. This may be due to the fact that corals are often rooted to a single spot and grow like plants.
  • Corsola and Relicanth are the only Water/Rock Pokémon that are not Fossil Pokémon.
    • However, Relicanth is considered to be an ancient Pokémon nevertheless.
    • Corsola is based off of coral, one of the oldest types of organisms on the planet.

Origin

It is based on a red coral.

Name origin

Corsola's name may be a combination of coral and sole, a piece of coral, or solar. Its Japanese appears to be a combination of sunny and 珊瑚 sango, coral.

  • German: Corasonn - From Koralle (coral) and Sonne (sun).
  • French: Corayon - From corail (coral) and rayon (ray). May also be a pun on crayon.
  • Korean: 코산호 Kosanho
  • Chinese: 太陽珊瑚
