Carvanha (Japanese: キバニア Kibanha) is a dual-type Water/Dark Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves into Sharpedo starting at level 30.

Contents

Biology

Carvanha is a fish Pokémon with a body covered in tiny, sharp denticles. The top half of its spherical body is blue, while the bottom half is red with a yellow, four-pointed star below its mouth. It has two yellow dorsal fins above its eyes that resemble shark fins, and a matching pelvic fin on its belly. Its pectoral fins are also yellow. The caudal fin is composed of two red spines with a thin yellow membrane stretched between them.

It has powerful jaws and razor-sharp teeth that are able to chew through solid steel, rip up boat hulls, and rip wooden boats to pieces. As a result, sailors avoid getting their boats dented by it at all costs. Carvanha has been responsible for the destruction of many boats that come into contact with it. They mercilessly swarm any intruder and prey that invades their territory, but they become timid when alone. It only attacks when in a group of five or more, becoming instantly vicious. Carvanha is drawn towards the scent of blood. It lives in rivers that course through jungles, as well as temperate regions. Each Carvanha school has their own territory. It competes with Basculin for food.

Sun Each school has its own territory. Any intruders are mercilessly attacked with fangs bared.
Moon If they scent the faintest trace of blood, they rush to attack en masse. When alone, they're rather cowardly.
Ultra Sun They're such cowards that they won't hunt alone. When five or so of them get together, they suddenly turn ferocious!
Ultra Moon With its sturdy jaws and fangs, it can easily chomp wooden boats to splinters. It fights with Basculin over food.
Generation VIII Galar

Sword It won't attack while it's alone—not even if it spots prey. Instead, it waits for other Carvanha to join it, and then the Pokémon attack as a group.
Shield These Pokémon have sharp fangs and powerful jaws. Sailors avoid Carvanha dens at all costs.
