Mantyke (Japanese: タマンタ Tamanta) is a dual-type Water/Flying baby Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves into Mantine when leveled up with a Remoraid in the party.

Biology

Mantyke resembles a manta ray. It has a round body with wide, flat fins. Its back is dark blue, while its underside is light blue. There are two red spots with white outlines and a light blue, curved line on its back. These markings give the overall impression of a smiling face and vary slightly in each region. It has two long, curving antennae on top of its head and black eyes with eyelash-like markings underneath.

The antennae are used to sense ocean currents. Mantyke is a friendly Pokémon that can be found approaching boats and swimming near the ocean's surface with schools of Remoraid. It often works together with Remoraid to repel attackers. Due to its friendly nature, Mantyke are very easy to tame. Mantyke are also super-popular in beach actives involving swimming tours. The Mantyke that lives in Galar appears to move slower due to the cold waters of the region.

Trivia

  • Mantyke is the only Pokémon that requires a specific Pokémon (Remoraid) to be in the party in order to evolve it. This is based on the aspect of mutualism, a form of symbiosis in which two organisms depend on each other for survival.
  • Mantyke has the highest base Special Defense stat of all unevolved Pokémon and of all baby Pokémon.
  • At 3'03" (1.0 m), Mantyke is the tallest baby Pokémon.
  • Mantyke is tied with Ledyba for the lowest base Attack of all Flying-type Pokémon.

Origin

Mantyke is based on a baby manta ray.

Name origin

Mantyke is a combination of manta and tyke (slang for child).

Tamanta is a combination of 玉 tama (egg) and manta.
