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 blue. It has a big mouth filled with sharp teeth, no neck, and arms that start at the outer edges of its jaws. 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. 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. Gible appears to be a good digger, making deep holes for homes in caverns. It enjoys play-fighting with other members of its species. It has tremendously strong jaws that it uses to bite enemies. However, even while biting, it often hurts itself because of clumsiness. Gible attacks anything that moves by chomping on them. This sometimes causes its teeth to chip and getting injured in the process, but Gible is never bothered by this. Gible drags whatever prey it catches back to its lair. It resides in narrow holes of caves with geothermal heat. This allow Gible to survive even during the winter.

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.
Generation VIII Galar

Sword Gible prefers to stay in narrow holes in the sides of caves heated by geothermal energy. This way, Gible can stay warm even during a blizzard.
Shield Gible attacks anything that moves, and it drags whatever it catches into the crevice that is its lair. Despite the big mouth, Gible's stomach is small.

Trivia

Origin

Appearance-wise, Gible seems to be based on a shark, especially a Hammerhead shark. Gible and its evolved forms may also be a reference to the book After Man. One species mentioned is a type of land shark that lives in desert regions.

Name origin

Gible may be a combination of gobble or ground and nibble.

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