Gorebyss (Japanese: サクラビス Sakurabyss) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Clamperl via trade with a DeepSeaScale. It is one of Clamperl's two final forms.

Biology

Physiology

Gorebyss resembles a pink eel-like creature with a long thin mouth, and two shell-like structures on its chest which makes it resemble a mermaid. Gorebyss also has a purple-tipped antenna-like fin on top of its head, a similar, if shorter fin below its mouth, and two small eyelashes on each eye. Gorebyss's tail has two bands of lighter coloration, and at the tip of it is a rounded purple fin. Gorebyss's shape suggests that it was modeled after a pipefish or snipe eel.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Its body is extremely durable, so as to withstand the extreme hydrostatic pressures exercised to it at such a depth, which explains its high Defense stat.

It also uses its thin mouth to pick food from small openings. Its mouth can also serve as a strong spear-like weapon when it's hunting down prey. Gorebyss's light pink body color becomes more vivid after feeding on prey, and also becomes more vivid with the rise of water temperatures in the springtime.

Behavior

Despite its elegant and beautiful appearance, Gorebyss can seem very cruel when it comes to hunting and battle, not hesitating to use its sharp, thin mouth to stab its prey into submission.

Habitat

Gorebyss lives deep under the seas, and it can withstand the immense pressure that can be found at such extreme depths.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Gorebyss is an omnivore, and its basic diet consists of seaweed found in between rocks. It also uses its needle-like mouth to stab its prey, and then it proceeds to suck out its internal fluids.

In the anime

Gorebyss and Huntail in the anime

Gorebyss first appeared alongside Huntail in The Evolutionary War, where residents of a trio of islands cannot agree on which of Clamperl's two evolutions are better.

A Gorebyss appeared in Up Close and Personable!.

Emerald A Gorebyss siphons the body fluids of prey through its thin, tubular mouth. Its light pink body color turns vivid when it finishes feeding.

Trivia

  • Gorebyss's Pokédex entry in Ruby and Sapphire states that it is a carnivorous hunter; however, its FireRed and LeafGreen entry also states that it is herbivorous.
    • It is possible, however, that Gorebyss is an omnivore, for neither entry states it eats only plants/meat.
  • Gorebyss is stated to suck the fluids out of its victim. However, it is unable to learn any HP-draining moves such as Leech Life or Giga Drain.
  • Despite being a pure Template:Type2 Pokémon, it bears a Template:Type2 Poké Assist in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia.
  • Gorebyss has the second highest Special Attack of all non legendary Water-types, being just one point below Omastar's.
    • Therefore, Gorebyss has the highest Special Attack of all the pure, non-legendary Water-types.

Origin

Gorebyss may have been based on snipe eel. It also resembles a pipefish as well as an oarfish, or a chimaera.

Name origin

Gorebyss's name is a combination of gore, to stab, and abyss; byss could also be referring to the byssal threads mussels use to attach themselves to rocks. Its name could also possibly be a play on gorgeous. Gorebyss's descriptions seem to confirm this view.

Its Japanese name is derived from the Japanese 桜 sakura, cherry blossom, possibly referring to its pink color, and the aforementioned abyss.
