Probopass (Japanese: ダイノーズ Dainose) is a dual-type Rock/Steel Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves from Nosepass when leveled up in a special magnetic field (unavailable in HGSS) or when exposed to a Thunder StoneLA.

Biology

Probopass's Mini-Noses

Probopass is a mostly blue, rock-like Pokémon. It has small round eyes, a red nose that is large in proportion to its body, and a bushy black mustache that consists of iron sand, which appears to be attracted by its magnetic nose. Probopass has three small objects on its sides and back, called Mini-Noses (Japanese: チビノーズ Chibinose), which it is able to control. It has a big red hat-like magnet on top of its head, and exudes strong magnetism from all over its body.

Being able to command these Mini-Noses, Probopass is able to catch prey and attack opponents from all three directions. On occasion, its Mini-Noses can get lost and may never come back. It emits strong magnetic fields that can damage nearby appliances. Probopass can use the iron sand to form rocks, which it uses to destroy its prey.

Major appearances

Probopass debuted in Nosing 'Round The Mountain!, under the ownership of Alan. It was first shown as a Nosepass, but it evolved while training near Mt. Coronet due to the mountain's special magnetic field. Soon after, Team Rocket brought Probopass under their control, but it was eventually freed by Alan with the help of Ash and his friends. It reappeared in a flashback in Playing The Leveling Field!, where it was revealed to have defeated Fantina's Gengar, earning Alan the Relic Badge.

In the original timeline of Arceus and the Jewel of Life, three Probopass were used by Damos, who was under Hypnosis, to attack Arceus with Shock Wave. When Ash and his friends traveled to the past to prevent this, Marcus, the one responsible for hypnotizing Damos, managed to use the Probopass again to attack Arceus.

In Trials and Determinations!, Olivia used a Probopass in the grand trial against Ash. It battled Rockruff and Rowlet, being defeated by the latter after it used Bloom Doom.

A Probopass appeared in Searching for Chivalry!, under the ownership of Wikstrom.

Minor appearances

Multiple Probopass appeared in Cheers on Castaways Isle!.

In Dawn of a Royal Day!, a Coordinator's Probopass competed in the Battle Stage of the Arrowroot Town Pokémon Contest.

In An Old Family Blend!, a Trainer's Probopass competed in the Lily of the Valley Conference.

Probopass in Pokémon Adventures

Pokémon Adventures

In Passing by Probopass and Maneuvering around Magnezone, Diamond was separated from Pearl and Platinum in Mt. Coronet because Cyrus deemed their presence as a nuisance and attempted to bury them alive in a Rock Slide with his Probopass and Magnezone. Diamond and Pearl would later fight to keep the criminal mastermind from taking his camera back to his headquarters, during which Cyrus used his Probopass' Magnet Bomb to injure the former.

Wikstrom's Probopass first appeared in PS587.

Trivia

Origin

Bulbanews
Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:

Probopass is based on the pukao-wearing moai statues of Easter Island and a compass magnet with iron filings attached to it. All of Probopass's noses are like the needles in a compass rose, with the big nose pointing North (as in some compasses where the North needle is the biggest), and the Mini-Noses pointing to the East, South, and West.

Its nasal compass may be based on the expression "follow one's nose", meaning "to trust to one's instincts". Alternatively, it may be a pun on the English words "nose" (Japanese: ノーズ nōzu) and "north" (Japanese: ノース nōsu). It also could be based on the ethmoid bone that is located between the nasal cavity and the brain, and is known to give some species their sense of direction via magnetoreception.

Name origin

Probopass may be a combination of proboscis and compass.

Dainose may be a combination of 大 dai (big), north, and nose. This contrasts its Mini-Noses (Japanese: チビノーズ Chibinose), whose Japanese name may be a combination of ちび chibi (small), north, and nose.
