Granbull is a purple, bipedal, bulldog-like Pokémon. It has a prominent lower jaw with two long, fang-like growths. Its upper jaw has two small fangs. The jaws are so heavy that the Pokémon has trouble keeping its head up. On the sides of its head are flat, curved ears, and its small nose is black. There is a black collar around its neck with two small white markings on it. Around its wrists are two black band markings, and it has a short tail.
Despite its fierce appearance, it is actually very timid. Unless Granbull is startled, it will not bite indiscriminately. If attacked, it will flail about to fend off its attacker. Granbull wanders around urban areas.
Granbull, the Fairy Pokémon. The evolved form of Snubbull. Granbull has extreme biting power due to its heavily muscled jaw and its strong teeth and tusks.
This concludes the entries from the original series.
In Pokémon Generations
A soldier's Granbull appeared in The Redemption, during a fantasy of a story from the past. It was one of the many Pokémon fighting in the great war of Kalos 3,000 years previously. Two additional Granbull were later seen petrified after the ultimate weapon was used by AZ to end the war.
A Granbull appeared in Teddiursa's Picnic, where it was stealing Pokémon to get attention as its jaw was dislocated. When Gold accidentally knocks its jaw into relocation, it happily returns all the Pokémon it took.
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Granbull hangs around Pokémon Square. Granbull evolved from Snubbull without realizing what was happening, though it enjoyed its new appearance after getting over the initial shock. This event alerted the rest of the characters that evolution was now possible.
This Pokémon was unavailable prior to Generation II.
Granbull has a particularly well- developed lower jaw. The enormous fangs are heavy, causing the Pokémon to tip its head back for balance. Unless it is startled, it will not try to bite indiscriminately.

Granbull and its pre-evolved form share their category with Clefairy and Clefable. They are all known as the Fairy Pokémon.
As the AbilityQuick Feet did not exist until Generation IV, a Snubbull with either Intimidate or Run Away will always evolve into a Granbull with Intimidate in Generation III games. This means that in Generation III, Granbull is the only Pokémon with an Ability that evolves from a Pokémon with one of two possible Abilities that shares to Granbull's Ability.
Granbull is the first Pokémon to evolve on-screen in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series.
Granbull and Granbulu may be a combination of grand and bulldog or bully (referencing its tendency to scare foes with its fangs or even bite them). It may also reference grumble (referring to its grumbling, growling tendency).
