Pokédex Entries for Garbodor

Generation 8 Pokédex Entries

Normal

Sword
This Pokémon eats trash, which turns into poison inside its body. The main component of the poison depends on what sort of trash was eaten.
Shield
The toxic liquid it launches from its right arm is so virulent that it can kill a weakened creature instantly.

Gigantamax

Sword
Due to Gigantamax energy, this Pokémon's toxic gas has become much thicker, congealing into masses shaped like discarded toys.
Shield
It sprays toxic gas from its mouth and fingers. If the gas engulfs you, the toxins will seep in all the way down to your bones.

Generation 7 Pokédex Entries

Normal

Sun
Beware the poisonous liquid it shoots from its right arm. If even a little of it gets on you, you'll experience the effects of the unidentified toxin.

For a time, their numbers increased explosively in Alola. Since the arrival of Grimer, their population has decreased dramatically.
Ultra Sun
It locks opponents in place with its left hand, immobilizing them by entirely dousing their bodies with poisonous liquid.

Some say the reason Garbodor in Alola are a little stronger than their counterparts elsewhere is the presence of Muk, their natural enemy.
