Carvanha (Japanese: キバニア Kibania) is a Water/Dark-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III. It is a Basic Pokémon. Its special ability is Rough Skin, an ability it shares with its evolved form, Sharpedo. They swarm any foe that invades their territory. Their sharp fangs can tear out boat hulls.


Carvanha looks somewhat like a piranha with a red and blue body with a yellow star on its lower jaw. Its lower jaw has a ragged edge with two teeth sticking out. Its fins are yellow with ragged edges.


Carvanha evolves into Sharpedo once level 30 is reached.
