Gothorita (ゴチミル) is the 81st Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex. It is a Psychic Type, and is known as the Manipulate Pokémon.

Gothorita has the ability Frisk. At the start of a battle, or when Gothorita is brought into the battle, this ability reveals what the foe has for a held item. If no information comes up, then the foe has no held item. A second ability obtainable via the Dream World is an ability called Shadow Tag. With this ability, Gothorita's opponent cannot run or be switched out. The opponent can still switch with other methods such as Baton Pass.

In a new wrinkle to the Shadow Tag ability starting in Generation V, if Pokémon that have Shadow Tag switches out, the opponent remains trapped.

At level 32 Gothita can evolve into Gothorita. When Gothorita reaches Level 41, it can evolve into Gothitelle, its final form.

Gothorita is in the Human-Like Egg Group, and its Egg will hatch after approximately 5,120 Steps. It takes Gothorita 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
