Goodra (Japanese: ヌメルゴン Numelgon) is a Dragon-type pseudo-legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

It evolves from Sliggoo starting at level 50 when leveled up during rain in the overworld. Rain instigated by Rain Dance, Drizzle or Primordial Sea will not trigger this evolution. It is the final form of Goomy.

Biology

Goodra is a pudgy bipedal Dragon-type Pokémon that appears to be made of goo. Its ventral portion is mauve, while its dorsal side is lavender. It has bright green eyes, and two green spots on either side of its face and three on either side of its thick tail which curls inward. Goodra have two sets of antennae atop their head that are capable of retracting. The front pair of antennae are short, skinny and stand upright, while the back pair are long and thick, drooping downward behind its head and curling upward toward their tapering ends. They are very dextrous and can be used for grabbing onto things, and can be extended to almost 3 times Goodra's height, as seen in the anime. A pale green slime drips from Goodra's chin and arms. Goodra is capable of throwing very strong punches. It is very affectionate and, when it hugs its Trainer, leaves them covered in goo.

Major appearances

Ash's Goodra

Ash's Sliggoo evolved into a Goodra in Good Friends, Great Training!, using Rain Dance to trigger its evolution. Later on, Ash released it in Beyond the Rainbow!. However, it rejoined Ash's party for the Lumiose Conference in Valuable Experience for All! before being released again in Facing the Needs of the Many!.

Minor appearances

An image of a Goodra appeared on James's computer in One for the Goomy! where Team Rocket discovered what Goomy would evolve into.

Trivia

Origin

Goodra, due to its Dragon type, elongated body shape, and retractable tentacles used for battling is probably based on the Lou Carcolh, a mythical serpent/mollusk creature from French folklore.

Like its pre-evolutions, it could also be based on soft bodied gastropods, such as slugs and nudibranch; in particular, the "blue dragon" sea slug; Goodra's Pokédex entry may be a reference to slug's retractable eyes, which retract when they are in danger.

Alternatively, it could be based on the yōkai called Shussebora, meaning "ascended trumpet shell", which is a trumpet shell snail that lives 1000 years in the mountains, 1000 on the plains and 1000 at sea will ascend and turn into a dragon.

Name origin

Goodra is a combination of goo and dragon. It may also be a play on good or hydra.

Numelgon may be a combination of 滑る numeru (to be slippery), gel, and dragon.
