Wimpod (コソクムシ Kosokumushi) is a bug/water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VII.

Biology

Physiology

Behavior

Wimpod are mostly timid and they'll usually run away when they see other Pokémon and people. However, they sometimes will get close to creatures they feel interested, especially the ones that aren't moving.

As they have a habit of storing things they've eaten, not only they're being seen as cleaners of the sea, but also this causes some greedy people and Pokémon like Murkrow hoping to steal the treasures, such as pearls, they have stored.

Natural abilities

Evolution

Wimpod evolves into Golisopod at level 30.

Sun
This Pokémon is a coward. As it desperately dashes off, the flailing of its many legs leaves a sparkling clean path in its wake.
Moon
Its habitat varies from beaches to seabeds. A natural scavenger, it will gleefully chow down on anything edible, no matter how rotten.
Ultra Sun
It will pick up anything it finds on the ground. Sometimes it finds coins, so Murkrow and Meowth will go after it.
Ultra Moon
An astonishingly cowardly Pokémon, Wimpod will whir its legs at high speeds to run away if anything comes near it.
