Garbodor in the Anime

Garbodor is a massive, monstrous Pokémon that appears have mutated from the toxins within a garbage bag. It has what seems to be a broken trash bag on its head, and covering the top part of its body. It has two ear-like clusters of garbage protruding from the top of its head. It has large round eyes and a gaping fang-filled mouth. The bottom part of its body is made entirely of filthy grayish brown garbage-like slime. It has patches of green and pink within the slime, and two arm-like appendages with metallic tubes sticking out. It has short stubby feet.

Behavior

Garbodor and its pre-evolution, Trubbish, are known to be prey of Alolan Grimer and Alolan Muk.

Special abilities

Garbodor can learn Sludge Bomb and Gunk Shot, among others. It belches poison gasses from its mouth. By eating garbage, it creates new kinds of toxic gasses inside its body.

Evolution

Garbodor is the evolved form of Trubbish as of level 36.

    For a time, their numbers increased explosively in Alola. Since the arrival of Grimer, their population has decreased dramatically.

    Some say the reason Garbodor in Alola are a little stronger than their counterparts elsewhere is the presence of Muk, their natural enemy.

Trivia

  • It shares similarities with Muk, Weezing and Swalot because they are pure Poison Pokémon in a 2 stage evolution line that represent a form of pollution and they all can learn Sludge.
  • You can find wild under-leveled Garbodor with a level lower than 36, the level when Trubbish evolves into Garbodor.

Origin

Garbodor seems to be based on a monster that has been mutated from the toxins within a garbage bag. The little ruffles of trash on its head may reference dust bunnies, seeing how they slightly resemble bunny ears or clumps of lint.

Etymology

Garbodor's name is a portmanteau of garbage and odor.

Garbodor's Japanese name, Dustdas, comes from dust and dasu (to exert).

Garbodor's French name, Miasmax, comes from miasma (unpleasant) and maximum.
