Omastar (Japanese: オムスター Omstar) is a dual-type Rock/Water Fossil Pokémon.

It evolves from Omanyte starting at level 40, after it is revived from a Helix Fossil.

Biology

Physiology

Omastar has a heavy, pale yellow, helix shell dotted with spikes. It has a sky blue body with ten tentacles, four of which are longer than the other six. Omastar has a squid-like beak and eyes with vertical-line pupils.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Most of Omastar's abilities are the same as Omanyte's, only stronger. Omastar can now learn how to use Stone Edge. Like most fully-evolved Pokémon, it can learn Hyper Beam and Giga Impact.

Behavior

Omastar, unlike Kabutops, is far more defensive. While Kabutops prefers to slice prey apart or swim after them, Omastar does not. Omastar has a high Special Attack suggesting that it prefers waiting for prey to come near it so it can attack. It is not as fierce as Kabutops and probably does not move as much either, preferring to stay rooted to a spot, waiting.

Habitat

The exact habitat of Omastar is unknown, but so far Helix Fossils are only found in the Kanto and Sinnoh regions, though some are also found on Unova's Twist Mountain.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Pokédex information indicates that Omastar would eat Shellder in the wild by cracking open their shells with sharp fangs and sucking out the insides.

Major appearances

Omastar first appeared in Attack of the Prehistoric Pokémon, alongside all the other Generation I Fossil Pokémon. They were sleeping under Grampa Canyon until a dynamite blast woke them up. The Water/Rock-type Fossil Pokémon chased Ash Ketchum and Team Rocket until Aerodactyl showed up and scared them off.

Omastar also appeared in Fossil Fools, alongside its pre-evolved form Omanyte. These Pokémon were discovered to be living in the Ruins of Alph, but they moved into a museum.

Minor appearances

An Omastar appeared in Team Rocket's fantasy in Imitation Confrontation.

Dr. Yung uses a Mirage Omastar in The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon.

An Omastar appeared in Lucario and the Mystery of Mew living in the Tree of Beginning. Also, one appeared in the opening of the movie.

An Omastar appeared in Dealing With Defensive Types!.

Pokédex entries

This Pokémon was unavailable prior to Generation I.
Generation I
Red A prehistoric Pokémon that died out when its heavy shell made it impossible to catch prey.
Blue
Yellow Sharp beaks ring its mouth. Its shell was too big for it to move freely, so it became extinct.
Stadium Attacks by ensnaring its enemy with its tentacles and biting with sharp fangs. Its overly-large shell makes it sluggish.
Generation II
Gold Apparently, it cracked Shellder's shell with its sharp fangs and sucked out the insides.
Silver Once wrapped around its prey, it never lets go. It eats the prey by tearing at it with sharp fangs.
Crystal Its heavy shell allowed it to reach only nearby food. This could be the reason it is extinct.
Stadium 2 Apparently, it cracked Shellder's shell with its sharp fangs and sucked out the insides.
Generation III
Ruby Omastar uses its tentacles to capture its prey. It is believed to have become extinct because its shell grew too large and heavy, causing its movements to become too slow and ponderous.
Sapphire
Emerald An Omastar uses its tentacles to capture its prey. It is believed to have become extinct because its shell grew too large, making its movements slow and ponderous.
FireRed Its tentacles are highly developed as if they are hands and feet. As soon as it ensnares prey, it bites.
LeafGreen Despite having strong fangs and tentacles, it went extinct when its heavy shell made it unable to catch prey.
Generation IV
Diamond It is thought that this Pokémon became extinct because its spiral shell grew too large.
Pearl
Platinum
HeartGold Apparently, it cracked Shellder's shell with its sharp fangs and sucked out the insides.
SoulSilver Once wrapped around its prey, it never lets go. It eats the prey by tearing at it with sharp fangs.

Trivia

  • In the Pokémon Red and Blue beta, Omastar was originally known as "Kargo". This is derived from "escargot", which is the French word for snail.
  • Omastar has the highest Special Attack base stat of any Rock type or non-legendary Water-type Pokémon.
  • Omastar is the only Fossil Pokémon that has been given a reason for extinction; its shell was too heavy for it to move, thus it starved to extinction.
    • This may also be a reference to the giant orthocone, ancestor to the modern octopus. The orthocone resembled an octopus but it had a long pointed shell that was slow and cumbersome.

Origin

It seems to be based on a type of ammonite.

Name origin

Omastar's name is a combination of a phonetic anagram of ammonite and star (based on its body shape).

Omstar is a combination of オウムガイ ōmugai (nautilus) and star.

In other languages

Germany Flag.png German Amoroso From Ammonit
Italy Flag.png Italian Omanstar Same as English name
South Korea Flag.png Korean 암스타 Amseuta From Ammonite and star. 암 (岩) also means "rock", one of its types.
