Gulpin (Japanese: ゴクリン Gokulin) is a Poison-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Swalot starting at level 26.

Biology

Gulpin is a round, green, amorphous Pokémon. It has a black diamond marking on its back and a yellow feather-like adornment on its head. A female has a shorter feather than a male. Its face consists of puckered lips and slanted eyes that are usually closed. It has two stubby appendages that are the same shape as its lips. It swallows anything of its own size whole, since its stomach comprises most of its body. Its heart and brain are very small in comparison to its stomach. The unique stomach acid it has allows it to digest almost anything. When it is digesting, vile, overpowering gases are expelled. It lives in grassy areas.

Trophy Information

"A Stomach Pokémon. While it's a carefree Pokémon with a lovable face, it can swallow something the size of itself in one gulp. Its stomach is filled with gastric juices strong enough to dissolve anything it eats. As it matures, it learns Wring Out, a move which is as strong as the remaining strength of the Pokémon. It evolves into Swalot."

Trivia

Origin

Gulpin's appearance may be based on a single, giant poison gland or even a gallbladder, the green sac-like organ that stores gastric acid. It also shares similarities with some snake species known to swallow their prey whole.

Name origin

Gulpin is a shortening of gulping (swallowing). It may also be a combination of "gulp" and "sculpin", as its appearance vaguely resembles the related blobfish.

Gokulin may be a combination of ゴクリ gokuri (the sound of gulping) and toxin.
