Snubbull (Japanese: ブルー Bulu) is a Fairy-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II. Prior to Generation VI, it was a Normal-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Granbull starting at level 23.

Biology

Snubbull is a pink, bipedal, bulldog-like Pokémon with blue polka dots covering its body. It has loose skin that drapes to cover the lower part of its body, giving it the appearance of a dress. There is a small, blue ruff around its neck. It has a pronounced underbite, but it still has powerful jaws. Additionally, it has two earflaps that are flat, curved, and tipped with black, and a small, shiny black nose. Its feet are beige with three toes and a circular pink paw pad, while its arms are short and stubby.

Snubbull, as seen in the anime, possesses the ability to use their keen sense of smell to track things down. Despite this Pokémon's fierce-looking face, it is very playful and affectionate making it a popular companion among women. According to The Complete Pokémon Pocket Guide, it is also very devoted and loyal. It is not aggressive and tends to prefer to scare away its opponent rather than fight. However, it is saddened that others run from its frightening appearance. Snubbull wanders around urban areas.

Trivia

Origin

Snubbull seems to be based on an English bulldog due to its squat body, flat nose, droopy muzzle, and underbite. Its unusual pink fur and dress-like body may be inspired by pampered pet dogs whose owners dye their fur and dress them up in clothes. Its intimidating appearance is reminiscent of various grotesque mythical creatures such as goblins and orcs, while its category, Egg Group and type may reference the Cù-sìth, a creature in Celtic mythology whose name means dog fairy.

Name origin

Snubbull may be a combination of snub (a short nose, or to treat with disdain) and bulldog or bully (referring to how it scares away foes). It may also be a play on snuggle.

Bulu may be a shortening of bulldog or bully.
