Corsola (サニーゴ Saniigo) is a Water/Rock-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II and a ghost-type introduced in Generation VIII.

Biology

Physiology

Corsola is composed of a pink and white, coral-like substance. It has a small face with a smile and a white underbelly. In addition to the coral outgrowths (also described as branches) situated all over the upper half of its body, Corsola also has a growth like a horn on its head, and that is considered its natural armament when facing underwater predators.

Galarian Corsola has an overall bleached white substance and has a grey underbelly, similar to bleached coral (dying coral). It also has half-closed pink eyes, and it now has a perpetual frown rather than a smile. Its arms and branches have a distinctly semitransparent appearance to them. The semitransparent branches that grow from its body are not actually corporeal, and they're incapable of causing injury or pain.

Behavior

Found in the warm shallow waters of southern seas, Corsola requires clean water to live. If its habitat is dirty, the growths on its back become discolored and degenerate. However, when it is healthy, its growths regularly shed and grow back. It is able to regrow them over the course of a single night. It forms large social groups. Occasionally, these groups get so large that people may live atop them, as is the case in Pacifidlog Town. Corsola's horn is a prized material, commonly used for jewelry and carving as seen in the anime. Smaller Pokémon like Seadra and Luvdisc are sometimes sheltered by Corsola's branches, and even offer it protection from foes.

Galarian Corsola were wiped out by sudden changes in ocean temperature caused by a meteor impact, turning them into Ghost-types. Their branches can be used to take root inside and drain the life force of others, leaving any opponent petrified as a result. While they can be mistaken for ordinary rocks, they will curse anybody who kicks them by accident, and it's said that they sometimes attack humans and Pokémon that they come in contact with.

Natural Abilities

Due to its appearance, it seems that Corsola could easily disguise itself as a rock or coral to avoid being eaten/attacked.

The branches serve to supply Corsola with nutrients by absorbing them from wherever there is clean water. The branches are amazingly expendable; if any branch breaks off, Corsola can grow it back over the period of one night (compare with Staryu). However, this fragility is undermined by Corsola's inability to live in polluted water. If the sea is polluted, Corsola's branches become discolored and soon crumble away, where soon after the Pokémon will die.

Galarian Corsola, a Ghost-type, are able to absorb life forces to supply itself. They can also curse people who accidentally kick them. The branches cannot cause injures or pain, but they immobilize the victim until Galarian Corsola lets them go.

Habitat

Galarian Corsola lived in the sea surrounding the Galar region in the ancient past until they lost their lives due to a meteorite impact in the area. They are now often found living in places that were once seabeds and in the remains of prehistoric seas.

Evolution

This Pokémon does not evolve, but its Galarian form evolves into Cursola at level 38.

Anime

Misty's Corsola.

In the Pokémon anime, Misty caught a Corsola in the episode A Corsola Caper, and has owned it ever since. It almost immediately became Misty's primary battling Pokémon, displaying surprisingly strong offensive abilities (in one case, knocking out a Gyarados with a single attack) in addition to the defensive power for which the species is best known.

Trivia

  • Despite Corsola's many Pokédex entries suggesting that Corsola can't live in polluted waters, it can still learn Toxic by TM. This is likely due to the fact that coral is related to jellyfish and sea anemones and thus has stinging cells like them.
    • Although rather implicit, the existence of Galarian Corsola seems to support this claim that Corsola is weak to poison and pollutants.
  • Pacifidlog Town is built on a Corsola reef.

Origin

Corsola is based on coral, more specifically red or precious coral.

Galarian Corsola is based on bleached coral, coral that has lost the symbiotic algae that live inside it due to warmer or more acidic oceans than it's used to and thus lost its color. Its ability to retract and sprout its transparent branches while closing and opening its eyes give it an appearance vaguely similar to an incense burner lighting up and releasing smoke.

Etymology

Corsola comes from coral, sole (a piece of coral), and solar.

Its Japanese name Sunnygo comes from sunny and sango (coral).
