Garbodor (Japanese: ダストダス Dustdas) is a Poison-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves from Trubbish starting at level 36.

Biology

Garbodor has the appearance of a pile of trash spilling out of a large, torn garbage bag. It has a round, lumpy body that is mostly tan with blue and pink lumps. Its head has the appearance of the tied end of a garbage bag that has been ripped open and trails down like a cape. It has two appendages that look like clumps of garbage coming from its head. Its large, round eyes have small pupils, and when it opens its mouth, its large, triangular teeth can be seen. Garbodor has two long arms made of garbage that are held together with piping, and fingers also made up of piping material. It has one finger on its left hand and three on the other. It also has flat, dumpy feet.

Garbodor is able to spray poisonous gas and filth from its fingertips, but only from its right hand. It also finishes off opponents by subduing them with its left arm and spewing an awful-smelling toxic gas from its mouth. Garbodor prefers to live in unsanitary places such as garbage dumps. Garbodor inhales garbage, which then becomes part of its body. Alola was once home to many Garbodor, but the population shrank precipitously after Grimer was introduced to its habitat.

Sun Beware the poisonous liquid it shoots from its right arm. If even a little of it gets on you, you'll experience the effects of the unidentified toxin.
Moon For a time, their numbers increased explosively in Alola. Since the arrival of Grimer, their population has decreased dramatically.
Ultra Sun It locks opponents in place with its left hand, immobilizing them by entirely dousing their bodies with poisonous liquid.
Ultra Moon Some say the reason Garbodor in Alola are a little stronger than their counterparts elsewhere is the presence of Muk, their natural enemy.

Trivia

  • Prior to Pokémon Sun and Moon, Garbodor is the only Pokémon that can obtain the Weak Armor Ability not as a Hidden Ability.
  • Garbodor shares similar traits to Muk and Weezing. All three Pokémon are pure Poison-type Pokémon with a single pre-evolution, roughly the same base stat totals and evolution levels, and appear to be based on a different kind of pollution; Garbodor being land pollution.

Origin

Garbodor is based on a garbage bag that is bursting with garbage. Its visual design may be a reference the phrase "dust bunny", a term used in both the U.S. and Japan for clumps of lint. In Japan, the word "dust" is also used to refer to other forms of trash and refuse.

Name origin

Garbodor is a combination of garbage and odor.

Dustdas may be a combination of dust and 出す dasu (to exert or produce). It may also involve the phrase "dust to dust," which is a part of, "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust," a metaphor for finality in death.
