Pokémon GO Clamperl can evolve into a Huntail (Max CP 2140) or a Gorebyss (Max CP 2281) in Pokémon GO. The evolution process in the core games included trading a Clamperl holding a Deep Sea Tooth (for Huntail), or a Deep Sea Scale (for Gorebyss), but the exact mechanism in GO is unknown as of the time of this writing.
Both Huntail and Gorebyss are good additions to the Pokémon GO meta, falling right in the middle of the middle tier of water Pokémon with it’s strong Attack and glass-cannon like Stamina. Huntail and Gorebyss have the Swift Swim ability which doubles speed during rain.
Pokémon GO Clamperl is known as the “Bivalve Pokémon”, Pokémon GO Huntail as the “Deep Sea Pokémon” and Pokémon GO Gorebyss as the “South Sea Pokémon”. All of them are pure Water type Pokémon.
Huntail and Gorebyss in Pokémon GO
We must admit, we are very excited for both Huntail and Gorebyss! With their strong Attack stat, they are an interesting twist on the traditionally bulky water Pokémon. Gorebyss benefits slightly more from the current Combat Power formula, as it has 14 more ATK, which in turn translates to 141 more in terms of Max CP. Aside from the interesting stat distribution, we expect to see unusual moves for both of these sea serpents.
In addition, there’s the potential of seeing two new evolution items, given that Niantic decides to implement their evolution as it was in the core games:
|Deep Sea Scale||Deep Sea Tooth|
We love evolution items and would love to see both of these implemented.
