Omanyte (Japanese: オムナイト Omnite) is a dual-type Rock/Water Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

Omanyte has a large, pale-yellow shell on its back. Its main body is sky-blue with 10 tentacles (two of them are longer than the other eight). Omanyte has saucer-like eyes. Omanyte uses the many gas filled chambers in their helix shell to remain buoyant in the water column. They regulate their height by evacuating gases from compartments.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Omanyte learns several Water-based moves and a small handful of Rock-type moves. Unlike many Rock-types, Omanyte can't learn Earthquake.

Behavior

Habitat

The exact habitat of Omanyte is unknown even though there have been records of Omanyte hiding deep in damp caves, but so far Helix Fossils are only found in the Kanto and Sinnoh regions.

Diet

Unlike its evolved form, Omastar, this Pokémon fed on plankton in the wild.

Ash first encountered Omanyte in Attack of the Prehistoric Pokémon along with all the other Generation I fossil Pokémon. A dynamite blast woke up the fossil Pokémon living deep beneath Grandpa Canyon. They chased Ash and Team Rocket around until an Aerodactyl showed up and scared them off.

Omanyte and its evolved form, Omastar, were discovered to be living in the Ruins of Alph and moved to a museum in Fossil Fools.

In the manga

Pokémon Special

Misty had an Omanyte which she gave to Yellow in Template:PSV. Later, it evolves into Omastar.
