Probopass (Japanese: ダイノーズ Dainose) is a dual-type Rock/Steel Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves from Nosepass when leveled up in a special magnetic field.

Biology

Probopass's Mini-Noses

Probopass is a mostly blue, rock Pokémon. It has small round eyes, a red nose that is large in proportion to its body, and a bushy black mustache that appears to consist of iron filings. These iron filings appear to be attracted by its magnetic nose. It has three small objects on its sides and back, called Mini-Noses, which it is able to control. With these Mini-Noses, it is able to attack opponents from all three directions. It has a big red hat-like magnet on top of its head, and has strong magnetism from all over its body.

In Pokémon Adventures, Diamond was separated from Pearl and Platinum in Mt. Coronet because Cyrus deemed their presence as a nuisance and attempted to bury them alive in a rockslide with his Probopass and Magnezone. Diamond and Pearl would later fight to keep the criminal mastermind from taking his camera back to his headquarters, during which Cyrus used his Probopass' Magnet Bomb to injure the former.

Trivia

Origin

Bulbanews
Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:

Probopass is based on the pukau-wearing moai statues of Easter Island and a compass magnet with iron filings attached to it. All of Probopass's noses are like the needles in a compass rose, with the big nose pointing North (as in some compasses where the North needle is the biggest), and the Mini-Noses pointing to the East, South, and West, respectively.

Name origin

Probopass may be a combination of proboscis and compass.

Dainose may be a combination of 大 dai (big) and nose.
