Galvantula (Japanese: デンチュラ Dentula) is a dual-type Bug/Electric Pokémon.

It evolves from Joltik starting at level 36.

Biology

Physiology

Galvantula are hairy yellow and blue spiders. They appear to have four simple eyes located in the middle of their foreheads, nestled between two larger eyes which have pupils. They have a jagged purple stripe on their backs; their underside is also purple. Their connecting leg segments, as well as their single-toed feet, are dark blue in coloration. Spiky, hairy blue features fringe their abdomens.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Galvantula are capable of producing thread tinged with electricity, which it uses to capture their prey, both electrocuting and immobilizing the target. They will create a barrier of electrically-charged thread when attacked. They can hold down opponents with their front mandibles.

Behavior

Galvantula appear to be gregarious creatures; multiple Galvantula may occupy the same tree. They create barriers of electric thread when attacked.

Habitat

Galvantula make their home in electrical caves, where electricity is plentiful.

Diet

Galvantula are hunters, trapping their prey with electricity-charged threads, then slowly devouring the captured prey. They have also been known to feed on electricity from any source they can find.
