Omanyte (オムナイト Omunaito?, Omnite in original Japanese language versions) is one of the 493 fictional species of Pokémon creatures from the multi-billion-dollar[1] Pokémon media franchise – a collection of video games, anime, manga, books, trading cards and other media created by Satoshi Tajiri. Its main purpose in the games, as with all other Pokémon, is to battle both "wild" Pokémon, untamed creatures encountered while the player passes through various environments, and "tamed" Pokémon that are owned by Pokémon trainers.

Omanyte resembles a squishy blue ammonite with a white shell. It evolves into Omastar. Omanyte's name is a portmanteau of the English word ammonite, and omu, the Japanese word for nautilus. This is because Omanyte resembles the extinct ammonite. Or the O in Omanyte was received because its shell is circular, similar to the shape of the letter O. In the beta version of Pokémon, Omanyte was known as Ess, and its evolved form was named Kargo. When the two beta names are combined, they form the word Ess-Kargo, a homonym of the French word escargot, meaning snail.

Biological characteristics

Omanyte has been given two different origin stories, one from the video games, and one from the animé:

  • In the video games, an Omanyte fossil is brought back by "cloning" the pokémon.
  • In the animé, Omanyte are erroneously thought to be extinct, but in at least two different places they are found to be alive, albeit in hibernation: in Grandpa Canyon, and in the Ruins of Alph.

In either case, Omanyte is one of the oldest species of Pokémon. FOSSIL is a standard for allowing serial communication for telecommunications programs under DOS. FOSSIL is an acronym for Fido Opus Seadog Standard Interface Layer. ... For other uses, see clone. ...

Omanyte is a subterranean Pokémon. It has been described as both an insectivore and a plankton-eating filter feeder by canon sources; it is not certain if one of these sources is incorrect, or if it is capable of both. It has 10 arms, and can use air bladders in its shell to rise and fall in the water. Any organism with a diet that consists chiefly of insects and similar small creatures is an insectivore. ... Photomontage of plankton organisms Plankton are any drifting organism that inhabits the water column of oceans, seas, and bodies of fresh water. ... Filter feeders (also known as suspension feeders) are animals that feed by straining suspended matter and food particles from water, typically by passing the water over a specialized structure, such as the baleen of baleen whales. ...

In the video games

Omanyte cannot be captured at all; the only way to pick it up is to find the Helix Fossil (in Pokémon Red and Blue, Pokémon Yellow, or Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen), and 'bring it back to life.' The Helix Fossil can also be found in the Underground in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl after obtaining the National Dex. Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue are the first two installments of the Pokémon series of role-playing video games, released for the Game Boy in Japan in 1996. ...

Omanyte's cry is the exact same as Machop's.

In Pokémon Red, Blue, Yellow, FireRed, and LeafGreen, if the player chooses the Helix Fossil in Mount Moon instead of the Dome Fossil. The fossil will be revived into Kabuto if delivered at the Cinnabar Island laboratory. The Helix Fossil can also be found in the Underground in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl after obtaining the National dex. Likewise if the player choose the Dome Fossil instead of the Helix Fossil, a Kabuto will be revived instead of Omanyte. Kabuto (ドードリオ/Kabuto in Japanese, also called Kabuto in German and French) is a fictional character of the Pokémon franchise. ...


In the animé

Omanyte's first small cameo was the subject of a story Gym Leader Erika was telling the small children during a story circle portion of a supposed tour of her gym.


Omanyte's most notable role is in episode 165, Fossil Fools, in which a small remaining colony of Omanyte and Omastar are threatened by the destruction of the subterranean reservoir. The Ashokan Reservoir, located in Ulster County, New York, USA. It is one of 19 that supplies New York City with drinking water. ...


They also played a role in episode 26 (Pokémon Scent-Sation); however, this role is notable mostly because it was exactly twenty episodes before the Pokémon came back to life (in episode 46, Attack Of The Prehistoric Pokémon).


Additionally, Omanyte played a role in episodes 278 (Ruin With A View) and 293 (Stairway to Devon).
