Wailmer (Japanese: ホエルコ Hoeruko) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves into Wailord starting at level 40.

Wailmer, along with Azurill and Kecleon, was one of the first Generation III Pokémon revealed, in early March 2001.

Biology

Wailmer is a spherical whale Pokémon with no tail. It has a dark blue topside and a tan underbelly with grooves. It has two fins that have finger-like appendages, baleen plates that resemble teeth, and a blowhole on the top of its head.

Wailmer stores water inside its body, which it expels through its nostrils to startle people. When storing water in its body, it can turn into a bouncing ball. The more water filling its body, the higher it can bounce. It becomes lethargic when it is dry. It swims with its mouth open and eats tons of food a day, such as Wishiwashi. It lives in the sea, and can only live on land for a short amount of time. It occasionally bounces onto the beaches to play. On rare occasions, pods can be seen washed up on shore due to memories of once living on land. Dhelmise along with Sharpedo are natural predators to Wailmer.

Trivia

Origin

Wailmer is based on a baleen whale with aspects of a beach ball.

Name origin

Wailmer may be a combination of whale and mer (French for sea). Wail may also refer to the sounds or songs that whales and this Pokémon might make.

Hoeruko literally means 吠える子 (bellowing child), but 吠える hoeru (bellow) is phonetically similar to whale, making it also possibly mean whale child.
