Goomy (Japanese: ヌメラ Numera) is a Dragon-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

It evolves into Sliggoo starting at level 40, which evolves into Goodra starting at level 50 when leveled up during rain (or fogVII-VIII) in the overworld.

In Hisui, it evolves into Hisuian Sliggoo starting at level 40, which evolves into Hisuian Goodra starting at level 50 during rain or fog in the overworld.

Biology

Goomy when dried out

Goomy is a Pokémon that resembles a slug or a slime with beady black eyes. The lower half of its body is light purple, while the upper half is a paler shade of purple. Along the dividing line of the two colors are five large, green spots. The front part of this line is its mouth. On top of its head are two pairs of antenna-like horns; the hind pair is longer than the front pair. These sensitive horns are used to check its surroundings.

Goomy is considered the weakest Dragon-type Pokémon. Its body is mostly water and is covered by a germ-laden mucous membrane. This slimy layer causes physical attacks to slide off harmlessly. However, it becomes unable to breathe and will die if its body dries out. Because of this, it stays in damp, shady areas. Goomy's horns have powerful sensors that allow it to locate any sign of the enemy, allowing it to survive any kind of danger. As seen in the anime, its diet consists of leaves.

In Hisui, when Goomy evolves into Sliggoo, it gains an additional Steel-type along with a metallic spiral shell due to its mucus having a reaction to the iron-rich waters of the region.

Goomy and its Hisuian evolved forms are the only known Pokémon capable of learning the move Shelter.

Sun The weakest of all Dragon-type Pokémon, it's unable to breathe if its skin dries out, so it sticks to shady places.
Moon Its source of protection is its slimy, germ-laden mucous membrane. Anyone who touches it needs some thorough hand-washing.
Ultra Sun It uses its horns to check out its surroundings. They're very sensitive, so if you grab them, it will feel a strong shock and be unable to move.
Ultra Moon Its body is mostly water. If it dries out, it will die, so it's always sitting with perfect stillness in the shade.

Sword Because most of its body is water, it will dry up if the weather becomes too arid. It's considered the weakest dragon Pokémon.
Shield Their horns are powerful sensors. As soon as Goomy pick up any sign of enemies, they go into hiding. This is how they've survived.
Legends: Arceus Goomy hides away in the shade of trees, where it's nice and humid. If the slime coating its body dries out, the Pokémon instantly becomes lethargic.

Scarlet Most of a Goomy’s body is water. A membrane covers the whole Pokémon to prevent it from shriveling up in dry weather.
Violet Goomy's horns are excellent sensory organs that cover all five of Goomy's senses. Goomy picks up on danger from the movement of the air.

Trivia

Origin

Goomy seems to be based on soft-bodied gastropods, such as slugs and nudibranch; its typing and eventual dragon design in evolution may be a reference to the "blue dragon" sea slug. It may also be based upon the concept of living slime in popular culture. Goomy also bears some resemblance to the prehistoric wiwaxia.

Name origin

Goomy may be a combination of goo and either gummy or slimy.

Numera may be a combination of 滑る numeru (to be slippery) and ぬらぬら nuranura (onomatopoetic word for slimy).
