Numel (Japanese: ドンメル Donmeru) is a Fire/Ground-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

Biology

Physiology

Numel appears to be a fat yellow camel with a green marking and hole on the top of its hump. Numel also has regular camel ears, brown circles surrounding its perpetually droopy eyes, short legs, and a stout, beige potbelly.

Gender differences

Female Numel have slightly larger humps than the males. This is the same for its evolution Camerupt.

Natural abilities

Numel has the abilities Oblivious and Simple along with the hidden ability Own Tempo. Oblivious prevents Numel from being attracted from an opposite gender while Simple doubles stat changes when using a stat changing move. Own Tempo prevents Numel from being confused.

Evolution

Numel evolves into Camerupt at level 33.

Appearances

Anime

Numel first appeared in RS053: Game Winning Assist where many appear and then Team Rocket tries to steal them.

Trivia

  • The only Pokémon that shares the same type combination as Numel and Camerupt is Primal Groudon.
  • Numel is the only Pokémon with Larvitar that has all its abilities changed when it evolves.
  • In Pokémon Colosseum, Numel's shiny coloration is purple with a dark blue hump instead of yellow with a light blue hump.
  • Numel has been stated to both store magma in its hump and its stomach, seemingly contradicting each other. However, there is a possibility that both or neither, seeing as some Pokédex entries say it stores it in its body without specifying where in its body (in the latter case, the contents of Numel's hump and stomach, if not entirely unknown, would presumably be fat and stomach acid respectively).

Origin

Numel is based off of a dromedary camel. Its association with lava may be an attempt to avert the "camels store water in their humps" myth prevalent in popular culture, as camels actually store fat in their humps, both fat and lava having more solid consistencies than water and both producing heat. It being unable to bear being hungry may come from the fact that the fat stored in a camel's hump also serves as a backup food source, so camels (and presumably Numel) are only really hungry when the fat in their humps is depleted. Female Numel having bigger humps than male Numel may come from the fact that estrogen (a hormone more common in female animals) typically causes an increase in the amount of fat an animal has.

Etymology

Numel's name appears to be based on the words numb and camel. It may also derive from "hump" and "mellow." Donmeru is likely a portmanteau of "don" (Japanese for "thud") and "camel." It may also derive from "dome," referring to the shape of its body.
