Gible (Japanese: フカマル Fukamaru) is a dual-type Dragon/Ground Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves into Gabite starting at level 24, which evolves into Garchomp starting at level 48.

Biology

Gible is a small, bipedal dragon-like Pokémon that is primarily grayish-blue. It has a big mouth filled with sharp teeth, no neck, and arms that start at the outer edges of its jaws. Its stomach is relatively small compared to its mouth. A red underbelly stretches from its abdomen to the bottom of its jaw. Gible has two horns that resemble jet or plane engines, each with a light blue stripe in the middle. It has a single light blue stripe wrapping around its back, and a short tail. On top of its head is a dorsal fin, which has a notch on it for the male. Its dorsal fin is strong enough to carry a person.

In the past, Gible lived in the tropics. Gible appears to be a good digger, making deep holes for homes in caverns warmed by geothermal heat. This heated environment allows Gible to survive even during the winter. It has also been seen huddling with other members of its species to stave off the cold, although it enjoys play-fighting with them as well. Gible is typically sighted in rocky areas, such as mountains.

Gible has tremendously strong jaws that it uses to bite enemies and prey alike, dragging the latter back into its nest. However, even while biting, it often hurts itself because of clumsiness. This sometimes causes its teeth to chip and fall off in the process, but Gible is never bothered by this because the teeth will grow back after a few days. As shown in the anime, Gible is capable of eating through most types of metal.

Evolution

Gible evolves into Gabite, which evolves into Garchomp.

Sun It lives in caves warmed by geothermal heat. Even so, when the weather gets cold, it will huddle close with others of its kind.
Moon It skulks in caves, and when prey or an enemy passes by, it leaps out and chomps them. The force of its attack sometimes chips its teeth.
Ultra Sun It reacts to anything that moves—flies right at it and bites it. Sometimes it injures itself, but it doesn't care too much.
Ultra Moon Its original home is an area much hotter than Alola. If you're planning to live with one, your heating bill will soar.

Brilliant Diamond It nests in small, horizontal holes in cave walls. It pounces to catch prey that stray too close.
Shining Pearl It once lived in the tropics. To avoid the cold, it lives in caves warmed by geothermal heat.

Fukamaru may be a combination of 鱶 fuka (shark) and 丸 maru (round; suffix in young boy's names), as well as a pun on 深まる fukamaru (to deepen, to become deep).
