Stunfisk (Japanese: マッギョ Maggyo) is a dual-type Ground/Electric Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

Stunfisk is a fish-like creature with a broad, flattened, mud-brown body and a yellow tail that is constantly held above its face. At the base of its tail is a yellow marking shaped like an upside-down exclamation point. It has small, horizontal oval-shaped eyes, white with a tiny black pupil and no irises. Nearly exactly between these two eyes lies its mouth, which comprises of two thick gray lips. Finally, it has two small, flimsy fins at the sides of its body. These fins have two lobes.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Stunfisk has electrical powers, zapping their prey. By burying itself in the mud and its body acting like a camouflage, it can hide and deceive predators.

Behavior

Stunfisk buries itself in mud and sediment and waits for prey to pass by. Whenever unsuspecting prey touch its body, electricity is released and the prey is paralyzed.

Habitat

It buries itself in mud at the seaside.

Diet

Stunfisk are carnivorous.

Trivia

  • Despite being based on a fish and living in the water, Stunfisk is not of the Water-type.
    • Its Pokédex entries state it can reside in mud as well, despite taking super effective damage from both Ground- and Water-type attacks.
  • Stunfisk is the only Pokémon with a base stat total of 471.
  • Stunfisk has the lowest Speed of all Template:Type2 Pokémon.
  • Stunfisk is the only Template:Type2 Pokémon in the brown color group.
  • No other Pokémon has the same type combination as Stunfisk.
  • Stunfisk is one of four Pokémon immune to one of its own types without the aid of an ability. It shares this trait with Gligar, Gliscor and Landorus.
  • Stunfisk is the only non-legendary Ground-type Pokémon that is not related to any other Pokémon by evolution.

Origin

Stunfisk seems to be based on a flounder or dab combined with an electric ray. It may also be based on the stargazer, another fish that spends most of its time buried in the sea bottom and can make electric discharges when disturbed.

Name origin

Stunfisk is likely a combination of stun and fisk, the word for "fish" in most Northern European languages (from Old English fisk), or a combination of stun, fish, and disk, in reference to its flat shape. Maggyo name is likely a combination of マッド maddo, mud, and 魚 gyo, fish.
