[[Category:{{{type1}}}-type Pokémon|{{{ndex}}}]] Mantine (Japanese: マンタイン Mantain) is a dual-type Water/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves from Mantyke via level-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 flippers, and loses its original back markings, which are replaced by two ring-shaped marks. 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 literaly fly in the air if they gain enough speed. They soar gracefully out of the water.

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

Mantine in the anime

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

Mantine was also 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.

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.

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.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry

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, the Remoraid is absent from all of its Generation IV sprites.

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.
