Gorebyss has the Swift Swim Ability. This Ability doubles its Speed Statistic while it is raining, but the Speed boost won't double on the same turn in which it starts to rain. A second Ability is available to Gorebyss from the Dream World, the Hydration Ability. An Ability that also involves the rain, Hydration heals all Status problems while it is raining.
Gorebyss is in the Water 1 Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Gorebyss about 600,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
Gorebyss takes on the appearance of a very slender pink eel with a tail shaped like a small ping-pong paddle.
 Gender Differences
Gorebyss doesn't have any visible differences to differentiate between male and female.
 Game Information
 Original Games
The only instance in which Gorebyss have been found in the wild is at Route 4 in Pokémon White and Pokémon White 2 by fishing at a Shaking Spot with the Super Rod, which is obtained after obtaining the National Pokédex.
In all other games in which a Gorebyss can be obtained, the only way to do so is by evolving a Clamperl.
 Spin-off Games
Gorebyss appears at Endless Level 59, Forever Level 9 and Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!.
Gorebyss can only be obtained by evolving a Clamperl in the first round of Mystery Dungeon games. In Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness & Explorers of Sky, Gorebyss can appear at Miracle Sea B1-B18 & DPB1-B4.
Gorebyss is exclusive to Dungeon Light Adventure Squad, appearing at Wave Seas 23F-29F.
Gorebyss appears at the Sea of Wailord in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia. In Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, Gorebyss appears in the Underwater Ruins portion of Canal Ruins on Sophian Island. Like its pre-evolved form Clamperl, Gorebyss does not appear in the Past Missions.
Gorebyss can be found at Echo Valley Beach 1-3 in Pokémon Rumble Blast after completing the game.
 Trading Card Game
Gorebyss appears in only three sets. It is listed as an Uncommon Card in the Great Encounters set, and as a Rare Card in the EX Hidden Legends and EX Legend Maker sets, the same sets that also feature Huntail.
 Anime/Manga Information
Wild Gorebyss make an appearance during Chapter 235, the only appearance for Gorebyss in the Manga as of writing.
 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Gorebyss is a Five-Tier Pokémon, capable of appearing any Tier from Never-Utilized to Uber. Like Huntail, it also has access to Shell Smash to set up for a sweep, but Gorebyss has a better Special Attack than Huntail, making it a better option for a Special Sweep, especially with rain support.
In the Uber Tier, if it is raining when Gorebyss enters battle, it is very capable of revenge-KO'ing Mewtwo, along with other Pokémon that have taken damage prior to its entry.
Like Huntail, Gorebyss relies on setting up with Shell Smash, and using Taunt shuts down its attempts at setting up. Status Conditions also hamstring Gorebyss, but Gorebyss has a better Defense Statistic than Huntail. Hitting it quickly with a Grass or Electric-Type move will work wonders in bringing a quick end to Gorebyss.
The one restriction on Gorebyss' movepool: all tiers below the Under-Utilized Tier have a ban in place on the combination of Shell Smash and Baton Pass.
