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 in the springtime for some reason.

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 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!.

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.
    • Gorebyss is also stated to suck the fluids out of its victim. However, it's unable to learn Leech Life.
  • Despite being a pure Template:Type2 Pokémon, it bears a Template:Type2 Poké Assist in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia.

Origin

Gorebyss may have been based on snipe eel. It also resembles a pipefish as well as an oarfish, or a chimera (genus). The shells on its chest are similar to Ariel, the protagonist of the Disney film, The Little Mermaid.

Name origin

Gorebyss's name is a combination of gore, to stab, and byss, referring to filaments mollusks used to attach themselves to rocks. Its name could also possibly be a play on gorgeous. Another explanation could lie with the words abyss and the abyssal zone. 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 byss.
