Gorebyss (Japanese: サクラビス Sakurabyss) is a Water-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Clamperl when traded holding a DeepSeaScale. It is one of Clamperl's final forms, the other being Huntail.

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

Gorebyss's body is extremely durable, allowing it to withstand the extreme water pressures in the deep sea, 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

Major appearances

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.

Minor appearances

Multiple Gorebyss appeared in the opening of Destiny Deoxys.

A Gorebyss appeared in the opening of Lucario and the Mystery of Mew.

A Gorebyss is owned by a family of traveling circus performers in Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea.

A Gorebyss appeared in Up Close and Personable!
