Nosepass (Japanese: ノズパス Nosepass) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves into Probopass by level-up while in Mt. Coronet.

Biology

Physiology

Nosepass are Pokémon composed of hard rock. They closely resemble statues of human heads. Their most famous feature are their bright red noses, which are highly magnetic. They also have arms and legs, but don't appear to have any joints.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Their noses can function as electromagnets that point north. They cannot face each other since they all have the same polarity.

Behavior

It usually stands in one spot with its nose pointing north. It's said to be unmoving, but it actually can shift slightly.

Habitat

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

This Pokémon apparently feeds on prey that is attracted by its magnetism.

In the anime

Roxanne's Nosepass

Roxanne, the Gym Leader of Rustboro City, has a Nosepass which appeared in A Winner By a Nosepass. It was used in a gym battle against Ash Ketchum.

In Aipom and Circumstance, a young man named Hank used his Nosepass to track down Ash's missing Aipom.

In Nosing 'Round the Mountain!, Ash battled a boy named Alan and his Nosepass at Mt. Coronet. The Nosepass then evolved into Probopass.

In the manga

Roxanne's main Pokémon is a Nosepass. During her battle against Sapphire she used Nosepass' Magnet Pull so that her Aron cannot be switched. She saves its Poké Ball inside a book.

Ruby Nosepass's magnetic nose is always pointed to the north. If two of these Pokémon meet, they cannot turn their faces to each other when they are close because their magnetic noses repel one another.
Sapphire Nosepass had been said to be completely unmoving, with its magnetic nose pointed due north. However, close observation has revealed that the Pokémon actually moves by a little over 3/8 of an inch every year.
Emerald Its body emits a powerful magnetism. It feeds on prey that is pulled in by the force. Its magnetism is stronger in cold seasons.
FireRed Its magnetic nose consistently faces north. Travelers check Nosepass to get their bearings.

Trivia

  • Nosepass's entry on the Pokémon.com Pokédex shows it as not having any evolution. Probopass's entry shows that it evolves from Nosepass, but Nosepass's picture is not there. The same thing happens with Yanma and Yanmega.
  • Though its appearance suggests otherwise, Nosepass has a catch rate of 255.
  • Nosepass is the only pure Template:Type2 whose evolution is dual-type, as Probopass is Rock/Steel.
  • Nosepass's body was gray during the Generation III games. It is now blue.
  • In Generation III, Nosepass' sprite was more "curvy" than its sprite in Generation IV, which is more angular.

Origin

It is probably based on the Moai statues of Easter Island.

Name origin

Nosepass's name may be a combination of nose and compass.

In other languages

  • German: Nasgnet - Derived from nase (= nose) and magnet.
  • French: Tarinor
  • Korean: 코코파스 Cocopass
