Remoraid (Japanese: テッポウオ Teppouo) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves into Octillery starting at level 25.

Biology

Physiology

Remoraid is a small, light-blue fish-like Pokémon. It has saucer-like eyes and a purple mouth with four pointed teeth. Remoraid has a single pelvic fin positioned like a revolver's trigger, two caudal fins (the bottom on being the handle and the top one being the hammer) two small pectoral fins and a dorsal fin near its mouth. Remoraid may be a distant cousin of Magikarp and Feebas due to the fact all three are fish-like Pokémon that evolve into completely different sea-creatures (even though Remoraid's evolved form is an octopus while Magikarp and Feebas evolve into sea-serpents).

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Remoraid has the typical abilities of a Template:Type2, but also various beam-based moves (Remoraid is one of the few Pokémon that aren't fully evolved to learn Hyper Beam), as well Bullet Seed, Lock-On, Octazooka and Rock Blast to coincide with its gun-like appearance. Unlike most Water-type Pokémon, Remoraid is capable of using Template:Type2 attacks. The presence of a Remoraid has been known to make Mantyke evolve.

Behavior

Remoraid are well-known for their ability to shoot jets of water from the surface with incredible accuracy - often this is used to shoot bugs out of the air. They tend to travel with Mantine by attaching to its fins.

Habitat

Remoraid are sea-dwelling Pokémon.

Diet

Trivia

  • The Gunfish enemy that appears underwater in Stage 6 of Pulseman resembles to Remoraid, as they are both combinations of fish and revolver pistols. This may be on purpose due to the fact that Ken Sugimori designed the characters in this game and also designs Pokémon.
  • Remoraid is the only Pokémon so far that is needed to evolve another Pokémon in the same party. Without Remoraid's presence, Mantyke cannot evolve into Mantine.
  • Despite its symbiotic relationship with Mantine in previous generations, it does not appear in Mantine's Generation IV sprite.

Origin

Its fame for shooting attacks is like an archerfish, however in all other regards it seems to be based on a remora, and has some elements that make it look like a revolver. It doesn't look like its evolved form, Octillery, much like several other fishlike Pokémon do not resemble their evolutions, but Octillery has some wheeled cannon elements, making somewhat a paralell.

Name origin

Remoraid's name may be a combination of remora and raid, as in a rapid attack. Alternatively, its name could be a combination of romora and aid, denoting the health benefits of some fish which clean others. It may also be taken to incorporate the word mermaid into the name. Its Japanese name is probably a combination of 鉄砲 teppō, gun – as in water gun – and 魚 uo, fish. 鉄砲魚 teppōuo is also the Japanese name for the archerfish.
