Sharpedo (Japanese: サメハダー Samehader) is a dual-type Water/Dark Pokémon.

It evolves from Carvanha starting at level 30.

Biology

Physiology

Sharpedo's body is torpedo-shaped, much like the head and trunk section of a real shark. It has a large mouth filled with triangular, sharp teeth. Its body is covered in tiny, sharp denticles which reduce drag when it swims as well as cause damage to foes to that attack it with physical moves. Sharpedo is mostly dark blue in color, with a white underbelly. The yellow star marking it had as a Carvanha has migrated to its snout, and another star marking is on its rear. Sharpedo has a tall dorsal fin with two notches cut into it, with a pelvic fin directly opposite it, and the two pectoral fins arranged so that they resemble the fins on the back of a torpedo. Sharpedo's eyes are a deep red color and glow in the dark. It has two gill slits situated directly behind each eye.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Sharpedo's abilities are a modified, stronger version of Carvanha's. Sharpedo can now use Poison Jab, Slash, Night Slash, and Earthquake. Sharpedo are capable of swimming at 75 miles per hour (120 kilometers per hour) in pursuit of their prey, though they are unable to swim far distances. Their jaws are powerful enough to bite through metal with ease. If a Sharpedo's tooth breaks off, a new tooth will replace it immediately.

Since Sharpedo is a fully evolved Pokémon, it can use Hyper Beam and Giga Impact.

Behavior

Sharpedo is a generally dreaded and distrusted Pokémon. Sharpedo moves through the sea by swimming at speeds of up to 75 mph by forcing water out of its rear. Despite its vigor, Sharpedo has relatively low stamina, and is unable to swim great distances. Its teeth are strong enough to bite through metal, and they grow back rapidly if they snap off. Sharpedo is driven by an unruly, caustic urge to attack and destroy anything that enters its domain. As a result of its temperament and its armament, just one Sharpedo can effectively tear apart an oil tanker.

Habitat

Sharpedo live in the upper regions of the oceans.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Just like Carvanha, Sharpedo are predatory Pokémon that will prey upon any creature they can sink their teeth into.

Trivia

  • On April Fool's Day, 2002, Mizuado, a Steel/Water hammerhead shark Pokémon was "revealed", but it turned out to be a fake. This Pokémon was also sometimes called Samehadaa, which is similar to Sharpedo's Japanese name.
  • Sharpedo shares the same species name with Hydreigon. They are both known as Brutal Pokémon.
  • Despite primarily being a Water-type, Sharpedo could not learn any Water-type moves by level up in Generation III.
  • In a demo version of Ruby and Sapphire shown at Pokémon Festa 2002 in Japan, players started with a level 12 Sharpedo with no Ability, this was most likely done for the purpose of the demo only.
  • Sharpedo's evolutionary line can be seen as a parallel to Camerupt's family. Both of them are dual-type Pokémon, and both of their final evolutions are used by Team Aqua Leader Archie and Team Magma Leader Maxie, respectively.

Origin

Sharpedo is based on a shark with the body of a torpedo. It also looks like a shark that has been cut in half. Its general body shape is also similar to an Ocean Sunfish. Both fish are known for their sandpaper-like skin.

Name origin

Sharpedo is a combination of the words shark and torpedo. It may also involve sharp, referring to its fins and Rough Skin Ability.

Samehader may be a combination of 鮫 same (shark) and 肌荒れ hada-are (rough skin). It may also be a corruption of 鮫肌 samehada (rough skin), referring to its Ability.
