Granbull (Japanese: グランブル Granbulu) is a Fairy-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II. Prior to Generation VI, it was a Normal-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Snubbull starting at level 23.

Biology

Granbull is a purple, bipedal, bulldog-like Pokémon. It has a prominent lower jaw with two long, fang-like growths. Its upper jaw has two small fangs. The jaws are so heavy that the Pokémon has trouble keeping its head up. On the sides of its head are flat, curved ears, and its small nose is black. There is a black collar around its neck with two small white markings on it. Around its wrists are two black band markings, and it has a short tail.

Despite its fierce appearance, it is actually very timid. Unless Granbull is startled, it will not bite indiscriminately. If attacked, it will flail about to fend off its attacker. Granbull wanders around urban areas.

Sun Its well-developed lower jaw and heavy fangs are its weapons. As long as it's not provoked, it rarely bites.
Moon More timid than Snubbull, this Pokémon is doted on by young people amused at the contrast between its looks and its attitude.
Ultra Sun While it has powerful jaws, it doesn't care for disputes, so it rarely has a chance to display their might.
Ultra Moon Although it's popular with young people, Granbull is timid and sensitive, so it's totally incompetent as a watchdog.

Trivia

  • Granbull and its pre-evolved form share their category with Clefairy and Clefable. They are all known as the Fairy Pokémon.
  • As the Ability Quick Feet did not exist until Generation IV, a Snubbull with either Intimidate or Run Away will always evolve into a Granbull with Intimidate in Generation III games. This means that in Generation III, Granbull is the only Pokémon with an Ability that evolves from a Pokémon with one of two possible Abilities that shares to Granbull's Ability.
  • Granbull is the first Pokémon to evolve on-screen in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series.
  • Granbull has the highest Attack stat of all non-legendary Fairy-type Pokémon.

Origin

Granbull is based on a bulldog. Its category, Egg Group, and (as of Generation VI) type may reference the Cù-sìth, a mythological creature in Celtic mythology whose name literally translates to "dog fairy". Granbull's current typing and appearance also may reference goblins, orcs, or other mythical races of grotesque appearance.

Name origin

Granbull and Granbulu may be a combination of grand and bulldog or bully (referencing its tendency to scare foes with its fangs or even bite them). It may also reference grumble (referring to its grumbling, growling tendency).
