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. Granbull has a powerful bite owing to its large mouth.
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.

This Pokémon was unavailable prior to Generation II.

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 may be based on an English bulldog, a breed that can appear fierce but is actually gentle. Bulldogs are often depicted as being used as guard dogs, which may explain Granbull's thick collar and wristband/shackle-like markings. Its category, Egg Group, type, and appearance may reference the Cù-sìth, a creature in Celtic mythology whose name means dog fairy and various grotesque mythical creatures such as goblins and orcs.
Granbull and Granbulu may be a combination of grand, grumble, and bulldog or bully.
