Spoink (Japanese: バネブー Baneboo) is a Psychic-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Grumpig starting at level 32.

Biology

Spoink is a gray, pig-like Pokémon. It has dark, circular eyes, a large gray nose, and small ears. It has stubby arms and possesses no hind legs. Motion is achieved by bouncing on its spring-like tail. The bouncing has a vital function, in that it keeps its heart beating. Even while it is sleeping, it continues to bounce. It wears a pearl produced by Clamperl on top of its head, which amplifies its psychic powers. Spoink will be weakened without a pearl, and always searches for bigger pearls. In the anime it was shown to easily mistake other round objects as its pearl. It lives in mountainous areas. It likes to eat mushrooms that grow underground.

In the anime

Spoink in the anime

Major appearances

A Spoink first appeared in Pearls are a Spoink's Best Friend. The Bounce Pokémon had lost its pearl and Ash and his friends helped find the missing pearl. Spoink happened to be a kleptomaniac for anything round (especially round Pokémon) when it didn't have its pearl. The same Spoink appeared again in Clamperl of Wisdom, where it loses its pearl once again. Ash and his friends go searching for another pearl, but Team Rocket stole the only Clamperl that had one.

A Spoink also appeared in A Marathon Rivalry! during a demonstration of a Pokéathalon event.

Minor appearances

Ash used a Spoink in the first leg of the Pokémon Triathlon One Team, Two Team, Red Team, Blue Team!

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
AG079 Spoink Ash's Pokédex Spoink, the Bounce Pokémon. Spoink bounces about on its tail. The pearl upon its head helps to magnify its psychic powers. If a Spoink loses its pearl, it grows extremely tired.
This concludes the entries from the Advanced Generation series.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

In Pokémon Adventures, Tate and Liza each own a Spoink, which they used to train Ruby and Sapphire on Mirage Island in a Tag Battle.

Generation III
Ruby Spoink bounces around on its tail. The shock of its bouncing makes its heart pump. As a result, this Pokémon cannot afford to stop bouncing - if it stops, its heart will stop.
Sapphire Spoink keeps a pearl on top of its head. The pearl functions to amplify this Pokémon's psychokinetic powers. It is therefore on a constant search for a bigger pearl.
Emerald A Pokémon that manipulates psychic power at will. It doesn't stop bouncing even when it is asleep. It loves eating mushrooms that grow underground.
FireRed It apparently dies if it stops bouncing about. It carries a pearl from Clamperl on its head.

Trivia

  • Despite Pokédex entries saying that it would die if it stopped bouncing, it has been seen not bouncing many times in the anime.
  • Despite Pokédex entries saying that its pearl comes from a Clamperl, a Shiny Spoink's pearl is gray, but a Shiny Clamperl's pearl is gold.

Origin

The inspiration for Spoink 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. Spoink and Grumpig appear to instead use those pearls of wisdom to enhance their psychic powers. Spoink might also be a literal interpretation of a spring pig (in pig farming, spring is the ideal season for birth). Having a spring instead of legs may be a reference to a jack-in-the-box. Its affinity for underground mushrooms, as noted by its Emerald Pokédex entry, is characteristic of a truffle hog.

Name origin

Spoink may be a combination of spring and oink (the sound a pig makes).

Baneboo may be a combination of 発条 bane (spring) and ブーブー būbū (the sound of grumbling or oinking). Boo may also be a shortening of 豚 buta (pig).
