#705 Sliggoo

1920×1200 | 1920×1080 | 1600×1200


It drives away opponents by excreting a sticky liquid that can dissolve anything. Its eyes devolved, so it can’t see anything.

Sliggoo is the middle evolution of the Goomy family. People usually like Goomy or Goodra, but Sliggoo is actually my favourite member of this family. I think it’s because while I was training one to evolve, I found its attack animation really cute.

It’s apparently blind, so those green things that look like eyes either aren’t its actual eyes, or they don’t function as eyes.

Pokemon Sun/Moon’s pokedex entries for Sliggoo are really disturbing (which seems to be the case for a lot of other Pokemon too). Here’s the Sun entry: “It has trouble drawing a line between friends and food. It will calmly try to melt and eat even those it gets along well with.” And Moon: “This Pokémon’s mucous can dissolve anything. Toothless, it sprays mucous on its prey. Once they’re nicely dissolved, it slurps them up.”
Yeesh, it looks cute but is a deadly killer that will even murder its friends….. O_o

Stat-wise, it’s slow (it is based on a snail after all), but has good Sp Def and Sp Atk.
