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

It evolves from Nosepass when leveled up in either Mt. Coronet, Chargestone Cave, Kalos Route 13, or New Mauville.

Biology

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 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 the manga

Probopass in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

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.

The same 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. It could also be an homage to Nintendo's mascot Mario. All of Probopass's noses are like the needles in a compass, 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 is a combination of proboscis and compass.

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

In other languages

Language Title Meaning
Japan Flag.png Japanese ダイノーズ Dainose From dai, nose, north and compass
France Flag.png French Tarinorme From tarin and énorme
Spain Flag.png Spanish Probopass Same as English name
Germany Flag.png German Voluminas From voluminös and Nase
Italy Flag.png Italian Probopass Same as English name
South Korea Flag.png Korean 대코파스 Daekopass From 대 (大) dae and 코코파스 Kokopass. 대코 can be translated as "big nose".
