  • Sword

    With the hair wrapped around its body helping to enhance its muscles, this Pokémon can overwhelm even Machamp.
    Gigantamax: By transforming its leg hair, this Pokémon delivers power-packed drill kicks that can bore huge holes in Galar's terrain.

  • Shield

    Its hairs work like muscle fibers. When its hairs unfurl, they latch on to opponents, ensnaring them as tentacles would.

Trivia

  • Its line are the only Dark and Fairy-type Pokémon to be exclusively male.
  • Its line are the first male-only Pokémon introduced since Generation V.
  • It could be considered a relative of the Hatterene line because they are both a small Pokémon who uses their hair to make them seem bigger or stronger.

Origin

Grimmsnarl is based on trolls and ogres. It may also take inspiration from the Oni, a Japanese youkai that is often depicted as a demon, sometimes sporting large amounts of hair. It may take inspiration from the Grendel, a monster in Beowulf who was known for its pure darkness and extreme strength.

Etymology

Grimmsnarl comes from the words grim, grimm (from the Brothers Grimm), grimoire (a type of spell book, hence the Fairy-type), Grímnismál (a mythical poem), and snarl.
