Swalot (Japanese: マルノーム Marunoom) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Gulpin starting at level 26.

Biology

Physiology

Swalot is a tall, purple, blob-like Pokémon. It has a single row of black rhombuses running across what would be its mid-section. Swalot's hands have three fingers instead of two. Swalot has red, beady eyes and yellow whiskers.

Gender differences

A female Swalot has shorter whiskers than a male.

Special abilities

Swalot's pores secretes an incredibly toxic fluid.

Behavior

Swalot portrays behavior similar to Gulpin. It is known to eat in large quantities, most likely because its powerful stomach can handle anything.

Habitat

Like Gulpin, Swalot live in grassy plains. However, Swalot are a bit harder to find.

Ruby When Swalot spots prey, it spurts out a hideously toxic fluid from its pores and sprays the target. Once the prey has weakened, this Pokémon gulps it down whole with its cavernous mouth.
Sapphire Swalot has no teeth, so what it eats, it swallows whole, no matter what. Its cavernous mouth yawns widely. An automobile tire could easily fit inside this Pokémon's mouth.
Emerald Its powerful stomach acid is capable of digesting almost anything. The one thing in the whole world a Swalot can't digest is its own stomach.
FireRed It can swallow a tire whole in one gulp. It secretes a horribly toxic fluid from the pores on its body.
LeafGreen It can swallow a tire whole in one gulp. It secretes a horribly toxic fluid from the pores on its body.
