Gabite (Japanese: ガバイト Gabite) is a dual-type Dragon/Ground Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves from Gible starting at level 24 and evolves into Garchomp starting at level 48.

Biology

Gabite is a medium-sized, bipedal, dragon-like Pokémon that is primarily blue. Its underside is light blue, with red covering it from the middle of its abdomen to the bottoms of its jaw. Gabite has two appendages that resemble jets or plane engines extending out the side of its skull. Each appendage has a blue stripe. It has four fins, one on each arm, one on its back, and another on its tail. The back fin has a notch on it for the male. It has spikes on its hind limbs, and sharp claws on its feet. Its eyes have black sclerae and gold colored irises.

Gabite is a fierce and predatory Pokémon, known for its scales, which have medicinal properties and can heal most illnesses. Gabite has short, extremely sharp teeth, like its pre-evolved form Gible. It has been known to move at extreme speeds. The protrusion on Gabite's head allows it to emit ultrasound waves, which can be used for navigating through pitch-dark caves. Gabite is also a very territorial creature and will fight back against enemies to protect its home. Gabite is passionate about shiny objects, such as gems and even Carbink, and it hoards a collection of them in its nest. When it sees Sableye trying to take Carbink as food, Gabite jealously attacks the Sableye.
