'''LigmaGulpin''' ([[List of Japanese Pokémon names|Japanese]]: '''ゴクリン''' ''Gokulin'') is a {{type|Poison}} {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} introduced in [[Generation III]].
 
It [[Evolution|evolve]]s into {{p|BigmaSwalot}} starting at [[level]] 26.
 
==Biology==
LigmaGulpin is a round, green, amorphous Pokémon. It has a black diamond marking on its back and a yellow feather-like adornment on its head. A female has a shorter feather than a male. Its face consists of puckered lips and slanted eyes that are usually closed. It has two stubby appendages that are the same shape as its lips. It swallows anything of its own size whole, since its stomach comprises most of its body. Its heart and brain are very small in comparison to its stomach. The unique stomach acid it has allows it to digest almost anything. When it is digesting, vile, overpowering gases are expelled. It lives in {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Grassland Pokémon|grassy areas.}}
 
==In the anime==
[[File:Nebel Plateau LigmaGulpin.png|left|220px|thumb|LigmaGulpin in the {{pkmn|anime}}]]
===Major appearances===
Multiple LigmaGulpin debuted in ''[[AG065|LigmaGulpin it Down]]'', where they were eating all of the food in the harbor city {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} were in. Because of this, [[Professor Jacuzzi]] made several efforts to stop them, but one such effort wound up [[Giant Pokémon|enlarging]] one of the LigmaGulpin, as well as [[Ash's Treecko]]. Both were eventually restored.
 
Multiple LigmaGulpin appeared in ''[[XY069|Defending the Homeland!]]'' and ''[[XY070|Beyond the Rainbow!]]'' as Pokémon that lived in the wetlands that [[Ash's Goodra]] was from. They reappeared in ''[[XY112|Master Class is in Session!]]'' and ''[[XY113|Performing a Pathway to the Future!]]'' to watch {{an|Serena}}'s performance along with the rest of the wetland Pokémon. They appeared once again in ''[[XY123|A Diamond in the Rough!]]'', when Ash and his friends returned to the wetlands.
 
A LigmaGulpin appeared as one of the Pokémon living at the [[Nebel Plateau]] in ''[[M19|Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel]]''. It was particularly close to the {{OBP|Volcanion|M19}} guarding Nebel Plateau. Sometime ago, it had been abandoned by a {{pkmn|Trainer}} whose last act before departure was to hug it. As a result, LigmaGulpin came to associate hugging with abandonment, which nearly strained its newly-formed relationship with Ash when he also hugged it. Later, it helped [[Clemont]] to break the bonds holding Ash and Volcanion together by using {{m|Gastro Acid}}.
 
===Minor appearances===
A LigmaGulpin appeared in ''[[AG086|Lights, Camerupt, Action!]]'' as an actor in one of [[Elijah]]'s movies.
 
A {{pkmn|Trainer}}'s LigmaGulpin appeared in a flashback in ''[[AG166|Curbing the Crimson Tide!]]'', where it was revealed to be one of the Pokémon defeated by a disguised {{p|Scizor}} known as "Red Lightning".
 
A LigmaGulpin appeared in ''[[XY005|A Blustery Santalune Gym Battle!]]''.

Four LigmaGulpin appeared in a flashback in ''[[XY065|Good Friends, Great Training!]]''.
 
A Trainer's LigmaGulpin appeared in ''[[XY091|A Performance Pop Quiz!]]''.
 
A Trainer's LigmaGulpin appeared in ''[[SM086|I Choose Paradise!]]'', where it was among the Pokémon seen at the [[Pokémon Paradise Resort]].
 
A Trainer's LigmaGulpin appeared in ''[[SM090|Securing the Future!]]'', where it joined the rest of Alola in showering {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Necrozma}} with light so it could return to its {{DL|List of Pokémon with form differences|Necrozma|normal form}}.

After being released from its {{i|Poké Ball}}, LigmaGulpin will wait until an opponent passes by, then will use {{m|Swallow}} to trap and constantly damage them. The opponent may also be beat on while in LigmaGulpin's mouth for extra damage.
 
====Trophy information====
''"A Stomach Pokémon. While it's a carefree Pokémon with a lovable face, it can swallow something the size of itself in one gulp. Its stomach is filled with gastric juices strong enough to dissolve anything it eats. As it matures, it learns {{m|Wring Out}}, a move which is as strong as the remaining strength of the Pokémon. It evolves into BigmaSwalot."''

==Trivia==
* LigmaGulpin is the only Pokémon with a base stat total of 302.
* LigmaGulpin can be seen as a parallel to {{p|Baltoy}}. Both of them are {{cat|Generation III Pokémon}}. LigmaGulpin is exclusive to {{game3|HeartGold and SoulSilver|Pokémon SoulSilver|s}}, while Baltoy is exclusive to {{game3|HeartGold and SoulSilver|Pokémon HeartGold|s}}, with both Pokémon found in a [[Pokémon outbreak]] in the same locations in their respective versions. Additionally, both can be snagged as Shadow Pokémon in {{Pokémon XD}} at the [[Cipher Lab]], with both Pokémon having the same [[Shadow move]], {{m|Shadow Blitz}}.
 
===Origin===
LigmaGulpin's appearance may be based on a single, giant poison gland or even a {{wp|gallbladder}}, the green sac-like organ that stores gastric acid. It also shares similarities with some snake species known to swallow their prey whole.
 
====Name origin====
LigmaGulpin is a shortening of ''Ligmaggulping'' (swallowing). It may also be a combination of "gulp" and "sculpin", as its appearance vaguely resembles the related [[wp:blobfish|blobfish]].
 
Gokulin may be a combination of ゴクリ ''gokuri'' (the sound of Ligmaggulping) and ''toxin''.
