Grumpig (ブーピッグ) is the 111th Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Psychic-Type, and it is known as the Manipulate Pokémon.

Grumpig can have one of two Abilities: Thick Fat, which reduces the amount of damage taken from Fire and Ice-Type moves by 50%; or Own Tempo, an Ability that makes it immune to becoming Confused. Grumpig's Hidden Ability is the Gluttony Ability. This Ability causes it to consume its held Berry earlier than usual as a result of HP reduction.

Spoink can evolve into Grumpig starting at Level 32.

Grumpig is in the Field Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Grumpig 800,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Game Information

[edit] Spin-off Games

Grumpig appears at Endless Level 77, Forever Level 27 and Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!.

In the first round of Mystery Dungeon games, the only way to obtain a Grumpig is to evolve a Spoink. In Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness & Explorers of Sky, Grumpig appears at The Nightmare B1-B17 and Marine Resort B1-B19, but Grumpig-like other Pokémon-cannot be recruited at The Nightmare. Grumpig appears in all three versions of Mystery Dungeon 3. It appears at each version's respective Weird, Legendary, and Final-themed areas on floors 15-20, 19-23 and 27-29, respectively.

Grumpig has yet to appear in a game in the Pokémon Ranger series as of writing.

Grumpig can be found at Firebreathing Mountain Tower 3-3 in Pokémon Rumble Blast.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Grumpig finds itself in the Never-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling. It is capable of taking Special Attacks thanks to a high Special Defense, and its Special Attack isn't a slouch either. But what sets Grumpig apart from other Psychic-Type Pokémon is a variety of Status Attacks, along with Thick Fat, which helps it to resist Fire-Type and Ice-Type attacks.

Repeated attacks are a serious problem for Grumpig because it doesn't have any method of consistent, reliable recovery other than Rest. Additionally, like many other Psychic-Types it is vulnerable to Physical attacks due to a low Defense.
