Garbodor (Japanese: ダストダス Dustdas) is a Poison-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves from Trubbish starting at level 36.

Garbodor has a Gigantamax form.

Biology

Garbodor has the appearance of a pile of trash spilling out of a large, torn garbage bag. It has a round, lumpy body that is mostly tan with blue and pink lumps. Its head has the appearance of the tied end of a garbage bag that has been ripped open and trails down like a cape. It has two appendages that look like clumps of garbage coming from its head. Its large, round eyes have small pupils, and when it opens its mouth, its large, triangular teeth can be seen. Garbodor has two long arms made of garbage; one held together with piping, with fingers also made up of piping material, and the other held together with rebar. It has one finger on its left hand and three on the other. It also has flat, dumpy feet.

Garbodor is able to spray poisonous gas and filth from its fingertips, but only from its right hand. The toxic liquid from its right arm is so virulent, it can kill a weakened foe instantly. If that filth is blocked, its arm can swell up, causing it considerable pain and discomfort. It also finishes off opponents by belching them with its left arm and spewing an awful-smelling toxic gas from its mouth. Garbodor prefers to live in unsanitary places such as garbage dumps where Garbodor devour garbage in order to grow larger. Alola was once home to many Garbodor, but the population shrank precipitously after Grimer was introduced to its habitat. This is said to have made the remaining Garbodor population stronger than its counterparts from other regions. Alolan Muk prey on Garbodor.

As Gigantamax Garbodor, its size has increased with an altered look. The sclera in its eyes are dark pink. The feet disappear, with the lumpy body expanding. Several discarded toys appear on Garbodor. The toys are as follows: toy car, blocks, toy airplane, toy cruise ship, Substitute doll, Poke Doll, Master Ball, fish skeleton, and toy train. The spikes on its shoulder becomes longer; the right arm becomes bulkier; it has dark blue, pink, and light green spots all across its body; and three red clouds float around the head.

When Gigantamaxing, its toxic gas becomes thicker. This result in the gas taking a solid shape of discarded toys. Gigantamax Garbodor releases the gas through its mouth and fingers. Should the gas engulf someone, the toxin will seep deep in the bones.

Gigantamax Garbodor is the only known Pokémon capable of using the exclusive G-Max Move G-Max Malodor.

Sun Beware the poisonous liquid it shoots from its right arm. If even a little of it gets on you, you'll experience the effects of the unidentified toxin.
Moon For a time, their numbers increased explosively in Alola. Since the arrival of Grimer, their population has decreased dramatically.
Ultra Sun It locks opponents in place with its left hand, immobilizing them by entirely dousing their bodies with poisonous liquid.
Ultra Moon Some say the reason Garbodor in Alola are a little stronger than their counterparts elsewhere is the presence of Muk, their natural enemy.

Sword This Pokémon eats trash, which turns into poison inside its body. The main component of the poison depends on what sort of trash was eaten.
Shield The toxic liquid it launches from its right arm is so virulent that it can kill a weakened creature instantly.
Gigantamax Garbodor

Trivia

  • Garbodor shares similar traits to Muk and Weezing. All three Pokémon are pure Poison-type Pokémon with a single pre-evolved form, roughly the same base stat totals and evolution levels, and appear to be based on a different kind of pollution; Garbodor being land pollution.
  • Garbordor is the only Generation V Pokémon to have a Gigantamax form.

Origin

Garbodor is based on a garbage bag that is bursting with garbage. Its visual design may be a reference the phrase "dust bunny", a term used in both the U.S. and Japan for clumps of lint. In Japan, the word "dust" is also used to refer to other forms of trash and refuse.

Name origin

Garbodor is a combination of garbage and odor.

Dustdas may be a combination of dust and 出す dasu (to exert or produce).
