Description: A dark blue, Dragon Pokémon, Garchomp is the final evolution of Gible. It has a red chest, and yellow markings on its abdomen and forehead. Its horns, along with the odd shape of its head look very similar to a jet plane. Spikes jut out on its thighs and upper arms, while sharp claws protrude from the end of its wing-like arms, and its six toes. It has a large mouthful of razor sharp teeth, similar to a shark, as well as a dorsal fin and tail fins. Male Garchomp can be distinguised from female Garchomp by the notch in their dorsal fin.

Capable of Mega Evolution, Mega Garchomp's wing-like arms now resemble scythes and have bright red markings along the edges. It has gained several spikes framing the markings on its chest, as well as red spikes jutting from its knees. Its shoulders and face have more angular and broad shapes, giving it a more imposing look. Garchomp takes great pride in its wings so seeing them mishapen in its Mega Evolution will send it into a blind rage.

Garchomp fly exceptionally fast, earning it the nickname of Mach Pokémon. They hunt bird Pokémon and swallow their prey whole. A single Garchomp can wipe out entire flocks in one meal. They have exceptionally fine scales that reduce wind resistance and cut any would be attackers. Rarely seen in the wild, what few wild Garchomp exist live deep in caves.
