Gulpin (Japanese: ゴクリン Gokulin) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves into Swalot starting at level 26.

Biology

Physiology

Gulpin is a round, green, blob-like Pokémon. It has a black parallelogram on its back and a yellow feather on its head. Gulpin's face consists of puckered lips and slanted eyes that are always closed. It has two stubby appendages that are the same shape as its lips.

Gender differences

A female Gulpin has a shorter feather than a male.

Special abilities

Gulpin can Swallow anything its own size due to the fact that Gulpin is practically all stomach. Gulpin's stomach fluids have enough acidity to melt scrap iron. Some of Gulpin's status move options include Yawn, Amnesia, Curse and Snatch. Gulpin is also capable of a small handful of elemental attacks. It is one of the few Pokémon that can use Pain Split and Gunk Shot.

Behavior

Gulpin is known to eat in large quantities, most likely because its powerful stomach can handle anything.

Habitat

Gulpin tend to live in grassy plains. However, they sometimes migrate into cities and eat practically anything in sight.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Gulpin aren't what one would call "picky eaters". They will eat anything they can get into their mouths.

In the anime

Gulpin only appeared in Gulpin it Down. A bunch of these were eating all the food in the town Ash and friends were in.

In the manga

In the TCG

Trivia

Origin

Gulpin's appearence seems to be based on the blobfish, as well as being a single, giant poison gland or even a gallbladder, the green sac-like organ that stores gastric acid.

Name origin

Gulpin's name is a shortening of gulping, swallowing. Its Japanese name probably includes ごっくん gokkun, the sound of gulping or swallowing.

In other languages

  • German: Schluppuck
  • French: Gloupti - From the onomatopoeia gloup (a swallowing sound), and petit (small).
  • Korean: 꼴깍몬 Kkolkkakmon
