[[Category:{{{type1}}}-type Pokémon|{{{ndex}}}]] Gible (Japanese: フカマル Fukamaru) is a dual-type Dragon/Ground Pokémon.

It evolves into Gabite starting at level 24, who evolves into Garchomp starting at level 48.

Biology

Physiology

Gible is a small, pudgy dragon with a big mouth filled with sharp teeth.

It is dark blue, with a red underbelly that covers its abdomen to the bottoms of its jaws. Gible has two horns that resemble jet or plane engines, each with a light blue stripe in the middle. It has a single light blue stripe on its backs.

Gible is coldblooded.

Gender differences

A male has a cut on his dorsal fin, while the female does not. This may signify that male Gible fight more, leaving scars.

Special abilities

Gible appear to be good diggers, making deep holes for homes in caverns. They seem to be playful and enjoy play-fighting with other members of their species. The have tremendously strong jaws that they use to bite enemies. However, when biting, they hurt themselves, perhaps the reason why they can't learn bite-based attacks.

Behavior

Gible hide in their holes and wait for prey to pass by. They occasionally hold dare competitions with each other which can put them in danger. When they bite, they hurt themselves out of clumsiness.

Habitat

Gible lives in tunnels it constructs inside warm caves. It prefers heat similar to that of a tropical climate.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

They are most likely carnivores. However, they are sometimes found with the Haban Berry.

In the anime

Gible in the anime

Gible made a cameo in the movie The Rise of Darkrai where it was battling a Bronzor, and again as one of the victims to Darkrai's Dark Void. A balloon shaped like a Gible also appeared in the movie.

Gible made its debut anime appearance in DP145, where it was caught by Kazunari. A preview shown at the end of DP152 shows that Ash also obtains a Gible, which is revealed to happen at the earliest DP156. It is trying to learn the move Draco Meteor.

Another Gible is set to appear in DP157.

In the manga

Gible appears in Pokémon Adventures, in the Diamond & Pearl chapter in VS Gible where it belongs to a Team Galactic grunt.
