Graveler (Japanese: ゴローン Golone) is a dual-type Rock/Ground Pokémon.

It evolves from Geodude starting at level 25, and evolves into Golem when traded.

Biology

Physiology

It appears that Graveler is a living boulder. Its skin becomes tougher when it evolves. It also has four arms, but mainly uses the longer two to lift things, using the shorter two as a defense against attackers.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

They often roll down mountain paths at high speeds, crushing objects in the way. Despite growing legs, it can revert to a form similar in nature to Geodude, granting it the ability to float and lose two of its arms. If it breaks or shatters, it has the ability to restore itself overtime.

Behavior

Graveler are notable for their habit of tumbling down mountains, heedless of any obstacles as they simply roll over them. Their preferred locomotion is rolling specifically because it is a slow walker. With a free and uncaring nature, it does not mind if pieces of its body break off as it rolls. If Graveler gains too much speed, it stops by running into huge rocks. Graveler climbs a mountain from base to summit, crunchingly feasting on rocks all the while. Upon reaching the peak, Graveler rolls down to the bottom.

Habitat

Graveler can be often found on mountain trails or in caves. They are very common, appearing in Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

A Graveler's diet mainly consists of rocks. They especially like rocks covered in moss.

Major appearances

Graveler first appeared in The School of Hard Knocks. Giselle used it against Misty's Starmie to prove that Misty's victory despite a type advantage against her favor was not a fluke.

In Spring Fever, Rory had a Graveler that he used to dig for hot springs.

In Hooked on Onix, Graveler, its pre-evolution, and evolution were the loyal subjects of King Onix.

Minor appearances

Graveler made an appearance in The Ultimate Test as one of the Pokémon used in a Pokémon League entrance exam.

Graveler and Sandslash are seen helping a Surfing Rhydon in Right on, Rhydon.

A group of Graveler appeared in A Maze-ing Race!.

A Graveler was amongst the group of Pokémon used to attack Dawn, Brock, Officer Jenny, and Solana in Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu! Part Two.

A Graveler appeared in Camping It Up!.

Graveler and several Geodude appeared in Steeling Peace of Mind!.

In the manga

Pokémon Adventures

Graveler debuts in Onix is On! of the Red, Green & Blue chapter as a Pewter Gym Trainer's main Pokémon. It is quickly defeated by Red and Poli with a Water Gun and Ice Beam combo. Another one is seen next to Brock, suggesting that he is its owner.

Brock gives Yellow a Graveler in Volume 4 that eventually evolves into Golem in Volume 7.

Trivia

  • Graveler is one of the four Pokémon having a total of four arms, the others being Machamp, Ledian, and Desukaan.
  • Graveler's Crystal still sprite is different from that of Gold and Silver, making it one of few Pokémon to have three distinctly different sprites in Generation II.
  • Graveler's Red and Blue Versions sprite shows an incorrect number of limbs; only four are visible. This was corrected in Pokémon Yellow, however, as were many other incorrect sprites such as Koffing's.
    • Mato's rendition of the Pokémon also depicts Yellow's Graveler with four limbs, possibly for this reason. All other Graveler that have since appeared in Pokémon Adventures have shown the right amount.
  • In Shadows of Almia it can revealed as a chunky rock

Origin

Graveler doesn't share much in common with anything but boulders. Its four arms may be based on Hindu gods such as Shiva or Vishnu.

Name origin

Graveler's name is possibly derived from gravel. It could also be a corruption of groveler, someone who bows at the feet of a superior. Its Japanese name may be a combination of golem and stone. Additionally, ゴロゴローン gorogorōn is the sound of rolling, a pastime of Graveler.

In other languages

  • German: Georok - A corrupted combination of geo and rock.
  • French: Gravalanch - A corrupted combination of gravel and avalanche.
  • Korean: 데구리 Deguri
  • Chinese (Taiwan): 隆隆石 Lóng Lóng Shí - Literally "Rumbling Rock".
  • Chinese (Hong Kong): 滾動石 - Literally "rolling stone/rock/boulder".
