Clobbopus (タタッコ Tatakko) is a fighting-type Pokémon that was introduced in Generation VIII.

Biology

Physiology

Clobbopus is a small Pokémon that resembles an octopus. It has sandy white skin, blue eyes, and orange markings. Two of its tentacles have orange suckers and purple tips, making them resemble boxing gloves.

Behavior

Clobbopus are very curious Pokémon. However, their means of learning about the world is to punch things. Additionally, unlike many other Pokémon which are often far smarter than they appear, Clobbopus are only about as smart as a three-year-old, which may be an explanation for some of their behavioral patterns.

Natural Abilities

The Pokémon's tentacles are fragile and can be easily torn off, but they can regenerate.

Habitat

They usually live in underwater, but they come up on land to search for food, similarly to Poliwhirl and Wooper.

Diet

Their main food are likely Poliwhirl and Wooper.

Evolution

It evolves into Grapploct when it levels up after learning the move Taunt.
