Mantine (Japanese: マンタイン Mantain) is a dual-type Water/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves from Mantyke when it levels-up with a Remoraid in the party.

Biology

Physiology

Mantine's appearance changes from that of its pre-evolution in several ways. It is larger, has wider fins, and loses its original back markings, which are replaced by two ring-shaped marks. Its coloration is also greyer, and its back is a darker blue, along with gaining a wavy outline on its wings. It gains a streamer-like tail and longer "antennae". It also possesses two pairs of gill slits on its underside.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Unlike real-life manta rays, which can only "fly" through water, Mantine can literally fly in the air if they gain enough speed. They soar gracefully out of the water. Mantine are also able to naturally learn moves considered enigmatic for a Water-type Pokémon, such as Psybeam, Bullet Seed, and Confuse Ray.

Behavior

Mantine are mostly docile. They allow Remoraid to latch onto themselves. When they build up speed, they jump out of the water.

Habitat

Mantine like to live in large open seas.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Mantine is probably a filter feeder that lives on plankton.

In the anime

Major appearances

Mantine was used by a trainer that was searching for the Silver Wing in Mantine Overboard.

In Just Add Water, Mantine appeared under the ownership of Dorian, owner of the unofficial Coastline Gym.

In Steamboat Willies!, a Mantine which belongs to the owner of a ship helped Ash and Dawn saving the ship from falling off a waterfall.

Minor appearances

Mantine first appeared as a dreamed up Pokémon in Spell of the Unown. Molly Hale used it against Misty's Staryu.

Brock's mother, Lola, owns a Mantine which was used in her battle against Brock's Onix in A Family That Battles Together, Stays Together.

In Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea, Jack Walker uses his Capture Styler on one of these Kite Pokémon so it can help Jack get away from The Phantom during the begining of the movie.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
EP214 Mantine Ash's Pokédex Mantine, the Kite Pokémon. Mantine swims about the ocean, majestically, and may fly out of the water if it builds up enough speed.
This concludes the entries from the original series.

In the manga

Pokémon Adventures

Gold encounters a Mantine as he floats in the sea in Volume 12, which helps him in his attempt to defeat Lugia, powered by the Remoraid Gold received for flight transport.

Mantine is seen as one of the Pokémon swimming in the headquarters of Team Aqua.

Noland later gives Emerald one of his Mantine from the Battle Factory.

Trivia

  • The only difference between Skarmory and Mantine's stat distribution is in their defenses and attack; Mantine has 80 base Special Attack and 140 base Special Defense, but Skarmory has 80 base Attack and 140 base Defense.
    • Mantine is tied with Kyogre for having the highest Special Defense out of all Template:Type2 Pokémon.
  • Mantine is one of ten non-Bug, Template:Type2 Pokémon that cannot learn Fly.
    • However, the Mantine belonging to Gold knows how to use Fly.
  • Despite the fact that Mantine is featured in Crystal, Remoraid, its partner and later cause for evolution from Mantyke, is not found in the wild.
  • Mantine is the second Pokémon to have more than one Pokémon in one of its sprites. The first is Kangaskhan, although Kangaskhan is just holding its own baby, not a Pokémon of an entirely different species.
    • However, Remoraid is absent from all of its Generation IV sprites.
  • Mantine's shiny sprites in the second and third Generations also show the Remoraid attached to it to be an alternate color; however, they are depicted as light blue rather than gray or pink, the usual color of a shiny Remoraid.
    • Mantine's shiny sprite's color may also be noted to be very similar to its pre-evolution, Mantyke's normal form's color tone.

Origin

It is similar to a manta ray, with some kite-like aspects.

Name origin

Mantine's name, an anglicization of its Japanese name, may be a combination of manta and marine. It may also be a combination of manta and brine.

In other languages

  • German: Mantax - From manta.
  • French: Demanta - From manta.
  • Korean: 만타인 Mantain
  • Chinese (Taiwan): 巨翅飛魚 Jù Chì Fēi Yú - Literally "Giant wing flying fish".
