Sliggoo (ヌメイル Numeiru) is a Dragon-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

Biology

Physiology

Sliggoo is a gooey purple snail-like Pokémon. The top part of its body is a lighter shade of purple than its underside. Sliggoo has four long feeler-like horns atop its head and pale green spots lining its neck. When evolving from Goomy, Sliggoo's eyes devolved (resembling the green spots that Goomy had on its cheeks), so it is blind and must use its four feeler-like horns as a radar system to sense sounds and smells, as it lacks ears, a nose, and the ability to see. It has tiny stub-like arms on its deep purple underbelly, and a gooey snail-like shell on its back that seems to be part of its gelatinous body.

Behavior

Sliggoo protects itself from predators by coating its body with a slimy mucus that can melt through any material, even human skin; gloves are often used to prevent people from getting their skins melted while holding Sliggoo. It uses its slime to liquify prey before consuming it. Because it lost its eyesight after evolving, Sliggoo relies on its horns as a radar to navigate.

Natural abilities

Despite being blind, Sliggoo can use its horns as a high-performance radar system, allowing it to sense the sounds and smells in its environment.

Evolution

Sliggoo evolves from Goomy at level 40, and evolves into Goodra at level 50 (using moves or abilities to cause rain in a battle cannot make it evolve).
