Stunfisk (Japanese: マッギョ Maggyo) is a Ground/Electric-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V and a Ground/steel-type Pokémon in Generation VIII.

Biology

Physiology

Stunfisk is a flat fish-like Pokémon. Its body is mostly a muddy brown color, which allows it to camouflage as it hides beneath the water. It has two short brown fins on either side of its flat body, and a bright yellow tail fin. Two yellow markings run down its back. It has round eyes with black pupils, and pale brown lips. A yellow exclamation marking runs from its tail to the center of its body.

Its Galarian form is grey with green markings resembling grass. Its tail and the front section of its body resembles a bear trap's sharp teeth. Its jaw now has teeth and resembles a Poké Ball.

Behaviour

Stunfisk have very thick skin that even sumo wrestlers can't harm. They hunt by burying themselves in sand, then zapping anyone who steps on it, while smiling. If it can't paralyze the target, it will flee by contorting its body to flop away.

In Galar, Stunfisk hunt instead by camouflaging into the dirt and luring the unwary with its Poké Ball-shaped mouth, similar to Foongus. It is the only Pokémon able to use Snap Trap.

Evolution

Stunfisk does not evolve.

  • Sword

    Normal Form: Thanks to bacteria that lived in the mud flats with it, this Pokémon developed the organs it uses to generate electricity.
    Galarian Form: Living in mud with a high iron content has given it a strong steel body.

  • Shield

    Normal Form: For some reason, this Pokémon smiles slightly when it emits a strong electric current from the yellow markings on its body.
    Galarian Form: Its conspicuous lips lure prey in as it lies in wait in the mud. When prey gets close, Stunfisk clamps its jagged steel fins down on them.

Trivia

  • Stunfisk is the first Pokémon that has a Ground/Electric-type combination.
  • Despite living in water and being based on a fish, Stunfisk is not a Water-type.
    • However, it was planned to be Water-type, but was changed to the Ground/Electric-type due to type balancing.
  • Stunfisk is the one of the two Electric-type Pokémon to be weak to Water-type moves, Heat Rotom being the other.
  • Both of Stunfisk's abilities, Static and Limber, are related to the paralysis status condition. The latter ability is rather useless due to Stunfisk being immune to electric moves due to its original typing, unless it was changed.
  • Stunfisk is the only known Pokémon to both be weak against its own type and immune to its own type, as well as being the only aquatic Pokémon to be weak to Water-type moves.
  • A doctor in Humilau City tells that sleeping on a Stunfisk relaxes the body with its electricity.
  • Stunfisk is the flattest among the recent Pokémon. This was because its designer originally wanted it to be the flattest Pokémon in existence.
  • Stunfisk's Galarian form's offensive and defensive stats are reversed from its regular form.
  • Stunfisk is the only regional variant to lack an evolutionary line.
  • If Stunfisk holds an Air Balloon, it becomes immune to both of its own types.
  • Shiny Galarian Stunfisk resembles its Unovan fom.

Origin

Stunfisk is based on a flounder and a stargazer. It might also be based on a goosefish.

Its Galarian Form resembles a bear trap, which serves a similar purpose to its original origin of hiding in deep places and snatching up whoever steps on it. It may be based on the original concept of old beat traps, originally meaning to stun whoever stepped inside instead of clamping down. Its mouth resembles a Poké Ball, acting as the design of an overworld item.

Etymology

Stunfisk's name comes from the word "stun", and the word fisk, an old word for fish.
