Wailmer (Japanese: ホエルコ Hoeruko) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves into Wailord starting at level 40.

Biology

Physiology

Wailmer resembles a large spherical whale with no tail. It has a dark blue topside and a tan underbelly with groves. It has two fins that have finger-like appendages, baleen plates that resemble teeth and blowholes on the tops of their heads.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Wailmer can fill itself with water and turn itself into a bouncy ball. The more water it sucks in, the bouncier it becomes.

Behavior

They usually frolic in the ocean waves, breaching and eating. They are known to be very playful Pokémon.

Diet

They eat over a ton of food a day, which they filter with their baleen plates.

In the anime

Wailmer first appearance was a cameo in Pikachu's PikaBoo.

Ross used a Wailmer for a Pokémon Water-Race in Pokémon Heroes. Ross and Wailmer came in second while Misty and her Corsola came in first.

Wailmer made a cameo in The Great Eight Fate for Juan's Sootopolis City performance.

A Wailmer was befriended by Robin, a man who was living on an uncharted island, in Island Time. The Ball Whale Pokémon evolved into a Wailord in order to transport Robin and Ash and co. to a ship heading to Ever Grande City, though Robin later decided that he wanted to go back to the island.

A Wailmer appeared in Pruning a Passel of Pals!, taking part in the Wallace Cup.

A Wailmer will appear in DP109.

Trivia

Origin

Wailmer is based on a whale with aspects of a beach ball, similarly to Azumarill.

Name origin

Wailmer's name is based on whale. Wail may also refer to the sounds this Pokémon may create or refer to that whales sing or in this case, wail. Its Japanese name is literally 吠える子, bellowing child, but hoeru is similar in sound to the English word whale, making the meaning of its name whale child. Mer may come from the French word for sea.
