Granbull (Japanese: グランブル Granbulu) is a Fairy-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II. Prior to Generation VI, it was a Normal-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Snubbull starting at level 23.

Biology

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.

A Granbull's main weapons are its well-developed lower jaw and heavy fangs. The bite from its jaws is said to be very powerful. However, due to how heavy its jaws are, Granbull keeps its head tilted down constantly for balance. Despite its fierce appearance, it is actually very timid and sensitive, even more so than Snubbull. Granbull rarely bites as it prefers not to get involved in disputes. Unless Granbull is startled, it will not bite indiscriminately. If attacked, it will flail about to fend off its attacker. Granbull is popular with young people due to how it acts and looks. It is considered too incompetent to be a guard dog due to its nature. Granbull wanders around urban areas.

Game data

NPC appearances

  • Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Granbull hangs around Pokémon Square, first seen as a Snubbull. After the game is completed, it goes into a newly discovered cave and evolves 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.

Trivia

  • Granbull and its pre-evolved form share their category with Clefairy and Clefable. They are all known as the Fairy Pokémon.
    • The "Fairy Pokémon" category predates the introduction of the Fairy-type in Generation VI. From this generation onwards, the type and category of these four Pokémon share the same English name. However, this is not true in Japanese, where the type is フェアリータイプ Fairy-type and the category is ようせいポケモン Yōsei Pokémon.
  • As the Ability Quick 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.

Origin

Granbull may be based on an bulldog, breeds 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.

Due to its large size, it is possible that Granbull may be based on large bulldog breeds, like for example: Serrano Bulldog, Ca de Bou and the Alano Español.

Name origin

Granbull and Granbulu may be a combination of grand, grumble, and bulldog or bully.
