Trading Card Game
Gabite is listed as an Uncommon Card in Pokémon Organized Play Series 9, along with the Mysterious Treasures, Supreme Victors and Dragons Exalted (2) sets.
Ursala would use a Gabite in a number of her contest appearances against Dawn, starting with the episode Another One Gabites the Dust and, most recently, Coming Full Festival Circle!, which was the Semi-Finals of the Sinnoh Grand Festival.
Gabite has yet to appear in any of the films as of writing.
Gabite's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.
Gabite is a viable option in the PU Tier of Competitive Battling. Its typing, stats and type coverage with moves of its dual-typing make it an offensive threat physically. With the right support it can be a major offensive threat, but it doesn't have any moves that would boost its Speed, and without Eviolite it's easier to beat. With or without Eviolite, Gabite is still prone to being revenge-KO'd.
