Dragapult (ドラパルト Doraparuto) is a Dragon/Ghost-type Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII.

Biology

Physiology

Dragapult resembles a draconic Pokémon with a large triangular head. It has a long light blue tail that becomes transparent at the end of the tail. Dragapult also has four hollow horns on its triangular head where it launches Dreepy from the horns. It also has two small arms and feet each with sharp claws, with the hand claws colored in bright pink. Its body is black and has a yellow underbelly with red arrow-shaped markings.

Behavior

Dragapult cares for groups of Dreepy. The Dreepy live with Dragapult but they are used as missiles in battle.

Evolution

It evolves from Drakloak starting at level 60 and is Dreepy's final form.

Pokédex entries

  • Sword

    When it isn't battling, it keeps Dreepy in the holes on its horns. Once a fight starts, it launches the Dreepy like supersonic missiles.

  • Shield

    Apparently the Dreepy inside Dragapult's horns eagerly look forward to being launched out at Mach speeds.

Trivia

  • Dragapult has the highest base Speed stat of any Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon, while also being the fastest non-legendary Ghost-type (142).
    • However, it also has the lowest Special Defence of any Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon (75).
  • Dragapult is the lighest Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon at just 110.2lbs, but at 9'10" , it is also the tallest.
  • Dragapult shares many similarities with another Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon, Hydreigon:
    • Both Pokémon are part Dragon-types with a second type that are advantageous against the Psychic-type. They also maintain their typings across all 3 stages of evolution.
    • Both Pokémon have 3 heads in one way or another; Dragapult houses 2 Dreepy in the horns on its head, while Hydreigon actually has 3 heads.
    • Neither of them can learn any Fairy type moves.
    • They have similar stat distributions to each other; average HP and defenses, and high attacks (though Dragapult gears toward Physical Attack, and Hydreigon is geared towards Special Attack). The only difference is that Dragapult has a much higher Speed stat.
    • Their basic forms don't evolve until level 50, while their middle stage evolutions don't evolve until at least level 60 (64 in Zweilous' case).
    • Both Pokémon have more than one type immunity.
      • Unlike Hydreigon however, both of Dragapult's immunities are natural thanks to its part Ghost-typing; Hydreigon's Ground immunity only exists because of Levitate.
  • Dragapult is the only Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon with multiple type immunities without the aid of an Ability.
  • Dragapult is not the only Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon to incorporate features of an aircraft into its design, the other is Garchomp;
    • Garchomp's horns resemble a jet fighter's missile pods, while Dragapult's head is shaped like a stealth bomber, specifically a B-2 Spirit.
  • Dragapult is the only Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon that cannot learn Earthquake.

Origin

It may be based on a diplocaulus (an extinct genus of amphibians) which is referenced in its ghostly tail design which not only plays off of its Ghost-type, but also references how a full tail fossil has never been found of the diplocaulus. It may also be based on different types of military airplanes or crossbows. Its head shape design and the way it launches Dreepy is probably based on a stealth bomber, most likely the B-2 Spirit, possibly referencing its Ghost-type again. Its habit of carrying Dreepy on its head may reference the parental behavior of amphibians, who often let their offspring live on their back.

Etymology

Dragapult and Doraparuto come from the words dragon and catapult.
