Goodra (ヌメルゴン Numerugon) is a Dragon-type Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

Biology

Physiology

Goodra is a bipedal dragon Pokémon with snail-like traits. It has a pudgy light purple body with a round dark purple underbelly. It has vivid green eyes and two green spots on either cheek. Its thick green-spotted tail curls inward, resembling a snail's shell. Goodra has a pair of large retractable horns atop its head. Greenish slime drips from its arms and chin.

Gender differences

Female Goodra have smaller chin drips.

Behavior

Goodra is a cheerful and affectionate Pokémon, because of this, Goodra is often teased. However, it will strike at its tormentors with its retractable horns and powerful tail. It will often enthusiastically hug its beloved trainer, leaving them covered in goo. But this also implies that it doesn't like being left alone and will cry easily if its Trainer does so.

Natural abilities

Goodra is able to throw very powerful punches equivalent of the force of a hundred pro boxers, and attack with its retractable horns. Its slimy coating, in combination with a layer of fat, causes attacks to slide off.

Evolution

Goodra evolves from Sliggoo at level 50 when it is raining outside of the battle (using moves or abilities to cause rain in a battle cannot make it evolve) and is the final evolution form of Goomy.

  • At 150, Goodra has the highest Special Defense, and single base stat of all Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon.
    • Conversely, it's base 70 Defense is also the lowest of all Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon.
  • Goodra's pre-evolved form, Sliggoo,  is the only Pokémon that requires a level up under a certain weather condition in the overworld in order to evolve.
