Wailord (Japanese: ホエルオー Whaloh) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Wailmer starting at level 40.

Biology

Physiology

Wailord are mammalian Pokémon that are well known as the largest Pokémon discovered so far. They have small beady eyes, a huge mouth and a throat that is lined with grooves. It has two pairs of fins along its side and a horizontal tail at the back. It's vaguely shaped like a torpedo or a blimp.

Despite its enormous size, it is able to breed with many land-based Pokémon that are much smaller. This is due to it being in the Ground Egg Group, a reference to how whales are classified as mammals.


Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Wailord are able to take in large amounts of air and dive to incredible depths with just one massive breath. Since it is based on a whale and has a blowhole, it is one of the few Pokémon that are able to use Water Spout. With their large mouths, they are able to eat extreme quantities of food.

Behavior

Wailord are known to live in large packs for traveling as well as finding prey.

In the anime

Wailord in the anime

A Wailmer that befriended a man named Robin evolved into a Wailord in Island Time. This Wailord transported Ash and friends across the ocean until they came across a ship heading for Ever Grande City.

Along with their pre-evolved form, Wailord appeared in Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea.

In Leading a Stray!, a family of Wailord appeared. One Wailmer was separated from its family, and Ash helped it get back. By the end of the episode, this Wailmer evolved into a Wailord.

Trivia

  • Wailord is by far the tallest Pokémon in existence, but only the tenth heaviest.
    • Wailord is also the only "giant" Pokémon whose size was not outdone in the following generation.
      • Despite the fact that real-life fully grown blue whales weigh over 170 metric tonnes (over 27,000 stone), Wailord only weighs a meager sixty tonnes, which is less than one sixth of a real Blue Whale's tongue.
  • A Wailord, along with a Relicanth, is necessary in the party in order to unleash the three legendary golems from their sleeping places within the Sealed Chamber in the Generation III games.
    • This should mean that Wailord have exisited for a long time, since the Regi have been sealed away a long time ago, and Relicanth lived a long time ago.
  • Wailord is well known for the HSOWA joke.
  • Wailord has the fourth highest base HP stat of all Pokémon, after Blissey, Chansey, and Wobbuffet, in that order.
  • In the games Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness and Pokémon Colloseum, Wailord was resized to fit in the battlefield. In Pokémon Battle Revolution, however, it seems to have to been resized to match its Pokédex entry.

Origin

This Pokémon is based on the blue whale, the largest known animal to exist.

Name origin

Wailord's name is a combination of whale and lord. The wail may also refer to the sound that whales and this Pokémon may make.

Its Japanese name is probably a combination of whale and 王 ō, king.
