Gulpin (ゴクリン) is the 95th Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Poison Type, and is known as the Stomach Pokémon.

Gulpin can have one of two Abilities: Liquid Ooze, an Ability that affects HP-draining attacks used against it, causing the user of such moves as Leech Seed or Dream Eater to lose HP instead of recovering HP because the opponent absorbs the Liquid Ooze instead; or Sticky Hold, which prevents its Held Item from being stolen.

A third Ability is available to Gulpin from the Dream World, the Gluttony Ability. This Ability allows it to consume a held Berry earlier than normal due to HP loss.

Gulpin can evolve into Swalot starting at Level 26.

Gulpin is in the Amorphous Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Gulpin 1,600,000 Experience Points at the most to reach Level 100.
