Gothitelle (ゴチルゼル) is the 82nd Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex. It is a Psychic Type, and it is known as the Celestial Body Pokémon.

Gothitelle has the ability Frisk. At the start of a battle, or when Gothitelle is brough 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, Gothitelle's opponent cannot run or be switched out. The opponent can still switch with other methods such as Baton Pass.

In a change 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, and can evolve into Gothitelle at Level 41.

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




Gothitelle takes the appearance of a full-sized adult human. As the name suggests, the majority of Gothitelle's appearance is black, with the acception of the white bows, facial features, and hands.

Gender Differences

Gothitelle doesn't have any distinguished features that make it appear male or female.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Gothitelle resides in the PU tier of competitive battling. With Shadow Tag banned from the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling, Gothitelle finds itself in the lowest tier, where it is severely outclassed by many of the other Psychic-types in the tier. It can trap a weak attacking Pokémon with Mean Look and set up with Calm Mind, but the strategy fails most of the time due to its inability to hit a Dark-type. It is often too heavily pressured by offensive teams to succeed against them due to its poor Speed and lack of offensive prowess.

Gothitelle is also usable in the Uber tier of competitive battling. With the coveted ability Shadow Tag in its disposal, Gothitelle is capable of getting rid of Pokémon such as Klefki, support Arceus forms, and Defog Latios and Latias. Due to the immense role compression that Uber teams are forced to have due to the omnipresence of such huge threats like Primal Groudon, Mega Salamence, Ho-oh, and Xerneas, Gothitelle can thrive to remove numerous defensive Pokémon and opening the door for a Pokémon to take advantage of the lack of a defensive check on the other team. It has some utility moves as well like Thunder Wave and Tickle which make it easier for it to take out a defensive Pokémon like Klefki or support Arceus. However, Gothitelle does suffer from the fact that the tier is centralized primarily on physically offensive threats, which means that it can be easily taken out by a massive number of threats. It also cannot break through Dark-types and has little utility against offensive teams that can just blast by it. Other Shadow Tag users have their own merits that can make Gothitelle somewhat hard to justify on a team, as Wobbuffet has better natural bulk and Encore for better overall utility while Mega Gengar has much better offensive prowess and can match up better against the common team archetypes in Ubers. However, Gothitelle's ability to remove certain defensive Pokémon that the other two cannot without some trouble allows for it to still be quite usable as a trapper.
