Garchomp (Japanese: ガブリアス Gaburiasu) is a Dragon/Ground-type Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.
Garchomp is a bipedal hammerhead shark-like Pokémon colored mostly red and dark blue. On its head it possesses two horn-like appendages and a star-like yellow mark on its snout. Its arms have one claw each, and triangular fins emerge from its elbows and back. Upon Mega Evolution, its claws extend into scythes and its body is covered in more spikes with two red spikes.
Garchomp can fly in high velocity of sound in the air when folding their bodies and stretching their wings. Their wings can crash trees when they are running at a high speed. The appendages on their heads can serve the purpose of a sensor, which are helpful for detecting faraway preys.
Garchomp are relentless pursuit predators that chase down their prey while never allowing them to escape. They are seldom seen in the wild as they live in caves. They are loyal and friendly towards their trainers though, as demonstrated by Prof. Sycamore's Garchomp in the anime.
Upon Mega Evolving, Garchomp will become uncontrollably savage and aggressive due to their prided wings have become scythes. They won't cease throwing into a fit of ferocious rage and will even slice their enemies into scraps.
Garchomp is the final evolution of Gible. Gabite evolves into this Pokémon at level 48. Garchomp can further evolve into Mega Garchomp by using its Garchompite.
