Grimer banner


Born from polluted sludge in the sea exposed to the moon’s X-rays, Grimer's favorite food is anything filthy. They feed on wastewater pumped out from factories. This Pokémon enters sewer pipes to drink filthy wastewater. It smells too putrid to touch. Even weeds won't grow in its path. As it moves, it loses bits of its body from which new Grimer emerge. This worsens the stench around it.

Wherever Grimerhas passed, so many germs are left behind that no plants will ever grow again. When two of these Pokémon's bodies are combined together, new poisons are created.

Grimer's sludgy and rubbery body can be forced through any opening, however small it may be.
