Sharpedo (Japanese: サメハダー Samehader) is a dual-type Water/Dark Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves from Carvanha starting at level 30. It can Mega Evolve into Mega Sharpedo using the Sharpedonite‎.

Biology

Sharpedo is a torpedo-shaped shark Pokémon covered with tiny, sharp denticles. It has a large mouth filled with triangular, sharp teeth. Its eyes are a deep red color and glow in the dark. It has two gill slits situated directly behind each eye. It is mostly dark blue with a white underbelly. There is a yellow star-shaped marking on its snout, and another star marking on its rear. It has a tall dorsal fin with two notches cut into it, with a pelvic fin directly opposite it. Its two pectoral fins are arranged so that they resemble the fins on the back of a torpedo.

As Mega Sharpedo, the fangs in its mouth have transformed, and the horns that have sprouted from its nose can be regrown countless times. The yellow patterns on its body are scars carved into it in battle. With explosive propulsion, it can exceed 125mph in an instant.

Sharpedo can shoot out a jet of water, which allows it to swim 75 to 80 miles per hour. However, it is unable to swim long distances. It is feared and known as Bully of the Sea, or Gangs of the Sea as a group, due to its sharp teeth. Its fangs can rip through iron and steel, being able to tear apart a supertanker into pieces. When its fangs fall out, they grow back immediately. It lives in the sea.

Trivia

  • In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, if a player surfs on a Sharpedo, it will have its own model, and it can surf significantly faster than other Pokémon. However, it is impossible to fish while surfing on a Sharpedo, the game stating that "It's too risky to let go now!" An NPC on Route 124 refers to this as "speed surfing" if the player admits ignorance to her question.
  • On April Fool's Day, 2002, Mizuado, a Steel/Water hammerhead shark Pokémon was "revealed", but it turned out to be a fake. This Pokémon was also sometimes called Samehadaa, which is similar to Sharpedo's Japanese name.
  • Sharpedo shares its category name with Hydreigon. They are both known as the Brutal Pokémon.
  • In a demo version of Ruby and Sapphire shown at Pokémon Festa 2002 in Japan, players started with a level 12 Sharpedo with no Ability. This was most likely done for the purpose of the demo only.
  • Sharpedo's evolutionary line can be seen as a parallel to Camerupt's family. Both of them are dual-type Pokémon, both lines have identical base stat totals per evolutionary stage, both of their final evolutions are used by Team Aqua Leader Archie and Team Magma Leader Maxie, respectively, and both of their final evolutions can Mega Evolve.
  • Mega Sharpedo has the lowest base Special Defense of all Mega Evolved Pokemon.

Origin

Sharpedo is based on a shark with the body of a torpedo. It also looks like a shark that has been cut in half. Its general body shape is also similar to an ocean sunfish. Both fish are known for their sandpaper-like skin. Mega Sharpedo seems to also be based on a sawshark or sawfish.

Name origin

Sharpedo is a combination of shark and torpedo. It may also involve sharp, referring to its fins and Rough Skin Ability.

Samehader may be a combination of 鮫 same (shark) and 肌荒れ hada-are (rough skin). It may also be a corruption of 鮫肌 samehada (rough skin), referring to its Ability.
