Galvantula (Japanese: デンチュラ Denchura) is a Bug/Electric-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

Biology

Physiology

Galvantula is a large quadrupedal arachnid-like Pokémon that resembles a tarantula. Unlike normal arachnids, Galvantula only has four legs rather than eight. Its rounded furry body is mainly a vivid yellow color, with a grayish purple underbelly and stripes running along the back of its abdomen. It has deep blue tufts of fur sprouting from its sides. Its four hairy legs are blue and covered with yellow fur. Its has two large round blue eyes with black pupils, and four simple eyes on its forehead.

In its shiny variant, Galvantula retains its yellow coloration. However, this time, Galvantula's hair tufts stripe patterns, and eyes are now dark blue in color.

Special abilities

Galvantula is able to generate electrically-charged threads in order to electrocute and immobilize prey. These threads are released from Galvantula's fangs and can convert into a larger net.

Evolution

Galvantula is the evolved form of Joltik, as of level 36.

Trivia

  • Galvantula was among eight Pokémon revealed on the show Oha Suta on June 27, 2010. It was officially revealed on the October issue of Coro Coro on September 11, 2010.
  • Galvuantula is the fourth Pokémon with the appearance of a spider, the others being Spinarak, Ariados and Joltik.
  • No other Pokémon shares the same type combination as Galvantula, with the exception of Joltik (its pre-evolution), Charjabug and Vikavolt.
  • Galvantula and its pre-evolution, Joltik, are the only Pokémon that can learn Electroweb by leveling up.
  • When put to sleep in the main Generation V games, Galvantula's eyes do not close, unlike most other Pokemon.

Origin

As seen in its general shape as well as its name, Galvantula is based on a tarantula.

Etymology

Galvantula is a portmanteau of "galvanize" and "tarantula". Its Japanese name is likely a combination of 電気 denki, electricity, or 電柱 denchū, lightpole, and タランチュラ taranchura, tarantula.
