Grumpig (Japanese: ブーピッグ Boopig) is a Psychic-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Spoink starting at level 32.

Biology

Grumpig is a bipedal, pig-like Pokémon. It has large ears, a pink snout, and oval eyes. The lower half of its body is black, while the upper half is purple. There are black markings on its ears and arms, while its hands and feet are purple. Its tail is pink and curly. There appear to be three shining black pearls on its body: two on its head, and another on its mid-section where the black meets the purple. These pearls are used to amplify its psychic powers, which allow it to control its opponents. The dance it performs while using its powers is very popular. It lives on mountains.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

In VS. Grumpig I of the Ruby & Sapphire chapter, a herd of wild Grumpig attacked Ruby and Sapphire, only to be promptly defeated by the former's Mightyena, Nana. This would turn out to be a critical development in the manga's plot, as it is through this that Sapphire grows aware of Ruby's real strength.

Trivia

  • Grumpig shares its species name with Gothorita. They are both known as the Manipulate Pokémon.

Origin

Apart from being a pig, the inspiration for Grumpig may be the Biblical phrase "...neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you" from Matthew 7:6. The pearls were supposed to represent wisdom given to an audience who would not appreciate the teachings. Grumpig and Spoink appear to instead use those pearls of wisdom to enhance their psychic powers.

Name origin

Grumpig may be a combination of grump and pig. Grump may also be a corruption of grunt, a sound that pigs make.

Boopig may be a combination of ブーブー būbū (the sound of grumbling or oinking) or 豚 buta (pig) and pig.
