Mantine (Japanese: マンタイン Mantain) is a dual-type Water/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves from Mantyke when leveled up with a Remoraid in the party.

Biology

Physiology

Mantine's appearance changes from that of its pre-evolution in several ways. It is larger, has wider fins, and loses its original back markings, which are replaced by two ring-shaped marks. Its coloration is also greyer, and its back is a darker blue, along with gaining a wavy outline on its wings. It gains a streamer-like tail and longer "antennae". It also possesses two pairs of gill slits on its underside. Generally, it is pictured with a Remoraid attached to its underside, much like a cleaner fish.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Unlike real-life manta rays, which can only "fly" through water, Mantine can fly in the air if they gain enough speed. They soar gracefully out of the water. Mantine are also able to naturally learn moves considered enigmatic for a Water-type Pokémon, such as Psybeam, Bullet Seed, Signal Beam and Confuse Ray. However, several of these moves can be understood if one takes into consideration the Remoraid that is attached to Mantine's wing, as it learns all of these moves with the exception of Confuse Ray.

Behavior

Mantine are mostly docile. They allow Remoraid to latch onto themselves. When they build up speed, they jump out of the water.

Habitat

Mantine like to live in large open seas.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Mantine is probably a filter feeder that lives on plankton.

Trivia

  • Mantine can be seen as a parallel to Skarmory. Both of them are Flying-type Generation II Pokémon. Mantine is exclusive to Pokémon Gold and HeartGold, while Skarmory is exclusive to Pokémon Silver and SoulSilver. Furthermore, neither of the two had any evolutions in Gold and Silver.
    • They also have the exact same base stats, except that Mantine is oriented towards the special stats, while Skarmory is more based in the physical stats.
  • Mantine is tied with Kyogre for having the highest Special Defense out of all Water-type Pokémon. Mantine also has the highest Special Defense out of all non-legendary Flying-types.
  • Mantine is the fourth (and last) Pokémon to have more than one Pokémon in one of its sprites. The first is Kangaskhan, although Kangaskhan is just holding its own baby, not a Pokémon of an entirely different species. The second and third are the morphed Shellder in all of Slowbro's and Slowking's sprites. However, Remoraid is absent from all of its Generation IV and V sprites.
  • Despite the fact that Mantine evolve in the presence of a Remoraid, Remoraid is not present on any of Mantine's sprites in the generation the evolution method was introduced nor in the newer generation. This may be due to fact that the Remoraid used for evolution doesn't disappear after Mantine evolves from Mantyke.
  • In the anime, until the Best Wishes series, Mantine was pronounced as Mantyne. However, when Mantine appeared in The Road to Humilau! in the Best Wishes series, its name was pronounced as Mantien.
