Swalot (Japanese: マルノーム Marunoom) is a Poison-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves from Gulpin starting at level 26.

Biology

Swalot is a tall, purple, amorphous Pokémon. It has red, beady eyes and yellow whiskers. A female Swalot has shorter whiskers than a male. It has puckered lips and can fit an automobile tire in its mouth. Its hands have three fingers. It has a single row of black rhombi running across its midsection, and can expand and contract its body at will. It is capable of swallowing anything whole, and can digest anything except its own stomach lining. It covers prey and opponents with powerful poison. It lives in grassy areas.

Major appearances

Swalot first appeared in Deceit and Assist. The Poison Bag Pokémon belonged to a Coordinator named Anthony, who used it to compete in the Grand Festival.

In From Brags to Riches, a Trainer named Dominick used his Swalot and Tropius in a battle against Ash battling against Corphish and Torkoal. Corphish managed to defeat Dominick's Swalot.

Paul's brother, Reggie, also owns a Swalot which appeared in Lost Leader Strategy! Reggie used Swalot in his battle against Ash where it battled against Staravia and was able to defeat Staravia.

Minor appearances

A Swalot that was painted to look like a Grimer was shown at the Pokémon Dress-Up Contest in All Dressed Up With Somewhere To Go.

A Trainer's Swalot appeared in Summer of Discovery!.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Unlike its pre-evolution, Swalot has only made one key appearance in the Pokémon Adventures manga, being one of the Factory Pokémon fighting Pike Queen Lucy and Palace Maven Spenser in Swanky Showdown with Swalot. Although it seemingly won using a Hyper Beam after putting the former's Seviper to sleep, the serpent awoke using its Shed Skin ability and counterattacked with a Dig maneuver, defeating it.

Swalot was selected as an enemy Pokémon for the Frontier Brains' demonstration battle in Swanky Showdown with Swalot, alongside Electrode, which represents author Hidenori Kusaka.

The Battle Factory rented a Swalot which was stolen by Guile Hideout in The Final Battle VII.

Later, a member of the International Police was shown to have a Swalot in Innocent Scientist, also alongside an Electrode.

Team Flare owns multiple Swalot, which first appeared in Rhyhorn Charges.

The illustrator of Pokémon Adventures from Volume 10 onwards, Satoshi Yamamoto, is represented by a Swalot. In both of Swalot's appearances, an Electrode representing author Hidenori Kusaka was seen alongside it.
