Gabite (Japanese: ガバイト Gabite) is a dual-type Dragon/Ground Pokémon.

It evolves from Gible starting at level 24 and evolves into Garchomp starting at level 48.

Biology

Gabite is a medium-sized, bipedal dragon-like Pokémon that is primarily blue. Its underside is light blue, with red covering it from the middle of its abdomens to the bottoms of its jaw. Gabite has two appendages that resemble jets or plane engines extending out the side of its skull. Each appendage has a blue stripe. It has four fins, one on each arm, one on its back and another on its tail. It has spikes on its hind limbs, and sharp claws on its feet. Its eyes have black scleras and gold colored irises.

Gabite is a fierce and predatory Pokémon, known for its scales, of which have medicinal properties and can heal most illnesses. Gabite has short, extremely sharp teeth, like its pre-evolution, Gible. It has been known to move at extreme speeds. Gabite is also a very territorial creature, and will fight back against enemies to protect its home. Gabite has a habit of digging up gems and hoarding them in its nest.

Trivia

Origin

Appearance-wise, Gabite seems like a cross between a European dragon and a shark; it may be based on the landshark creature from Dungeons & Dragons.

Name origin

Gabite may be a combination of がぶがぶ gabugabu (to gobble or gulp down) and bite. It may also derive from がぶりと gaburito (bite or chew) or がぶりと噛み付く gaburitokamitsuku (to sink one's teeth into).
