Gible (Japanese: フカマル Fukamaru) is a dual-type Dragon/Ground Pokémon.

It evolves into Gabite starting at level 24, which evolves into Garchomp starting at level 48.

Biology

Gible is a small, bipedal dragon-like Pokémon that is primarily blue. It has a big mouth filled with sharp teeth, no neck, and arms that start at the outer edges of its jaws. A red underbelly stretches from its abdomen to the bottom of its jaw. Gible has two horns that resemble jet or plane engines, each with a light blue stripe in the middle. It has a single light blue stripe wrapping around its back. The fin on its head is strong enough to carry a person. Gible appears to be a good digger, making deep holes for homes in caverns. It enjoy play-fighting with other members of its species. It has tremendously strong jaws that it uses to bite enemies. However, when biting, it often hurts itself because of clumsiness.

Name origin

Gible may be a combination of gobble or ground and nibble.

Fukamaru may be a combination of 鱶 fuka (shark) and 丸 maru (round).
