Remoraid (Japanese: テッポウオ Teppouo) is a Water-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Octillery starting at level 25.

Biology

Remoraid is a light blue, fish-like Pokémon with saucer-like eyes, two darker blue stripes on its back, and a mouth with four pointed teeth. It has a single pelvic fin positioned like a revolver's trigger, two small pectoral fins, and a dorsal fin near its mouth resembling a gun's front sight. In addition, it has two caudal fins, the bottom of which resembling the butt of a gun and the top resembling the hammer. All of its fins except for the dorsal fin are white.

Remoraid is well known for its ability to shoot jets of water from the surface with incredible accuracy, often to shoot down flying insect prey out of the air. It tends to travel by attaching to Mantine's fins or in large groups of its own kind. When attached to a Mantine, it feeds on whatever the Mantine leaves behind. Remoraid is a sea-dwelling Pokémon, but when evolution draws near, Remoraid travels downstream from rivers.

Trivia

  • The Gunfish enemy that appears underwater in Stage 6 of Pulseman bears a resemblance to Remoraid, as they are both combinations of fish and revolver pistols. This may be on purpose due to the fact that Ken Sugimori designed the characters in this game and also designs Pokémon.
  • Remoraid is the only Pokémon so far that is needed to evolve another Pokémon in the same party. Without Remoraid's presence, Mantyke cannot evolve into Mantine. In the anime and Pokédex entries however, it is shown that Shellder is needed to evolve Slowpoke.
  • Despite that Remoraid is considered a dweller of deep seas it is most often caught in small ponds or lakes in the video games.
  • Remoraid can be seen as a parallel to Qwilfish. Both of them are Water-type Generation II Pokémon. Remoraid is exclusive to LeafGreen, while Qwilfish is exclusive to FireRed, with both Pokémon found in the same locations in their respective versions.
  • If one was to rearrange the Pokérap GS so all the Pokémon are in National Pokédex order, Remoraid would remain in its position in the song.

Origin

Remoraid's talent for shooting attacks is similar to an archerfish's. Considering its relationship to Mantyke and Mantine it appears to also be based on a remora. Its shooting abilities, general shape, and appearance make it similar to firearms, more specifically, revolvers.

Name origin

Remoraid may be a combination of remora and raid (a rapid attack). Alternatively, it could be a combination of remora and aid, denoting the health benefits of some fish which clean others.
