Biology

Remoraid has a somewhat symbiotic relationship with Mantine. Remoraid will attach itself to the underbelly of Mantine with its dorsal fin, eating scraps of food that Mantine drops.

When not scavenging for food, Remoraid will strike down its own prey with precise accuracy using fast streams of airborne water, which Remoraid shoots from its mouth using abdominal muscles. This technique is used to capture moving insects from a distance of over 300 feet away.

Remoraid can move faster through the water by blasting water from its mouth in the opposite direction of where it intends to move. It can use this ability to escape from large foes which it doesn't intend to eat.


A curious trait of Remoraid is its ability to evolve in to Octillery: an octopus, not a fish. The two show no physical resemblance and to the untrained eye, appear to be two completely separate Pokémon.

Remoraid learns a range of beam attacks, as well as Lock-On (hence its superb accuracy). Some of the moves it learns include Psybeam, Aurora Beam, Bubblebeam, Ice Beam and Hyper Beam.


At level 25, it evolves into the octopus Pokémon, Octillery.


The problem with Remoraid is its low defense, which also makes it difficult to capture.


In the animé

Remoraid are featured in the episode The Light Fantastic, where every twelve years they make a giant ice sculpture that makes water flow down an otherwise dried up river.


Later, while at the Whirl Cup, Ash meets a boy who owns an Octillery. He has an aquarium with a school of Remoraid, that ignore and keep their distance from Octillery. When Team Rocket arrives to steal them, Octillery rescues the Remoraid and they all regain their friendship with Octillery, using the experience to evolve themselves. This is the first instance of racism among Pokémon.


Remoraid are also used as replacements for guns in a parody of a Western movie.
