Remoraid is a small, light-blue fish-like Pokémon. It has saucer-like eyes, two darker-blue markings on its back and a purple mouth with four pointed teeth. Remoraid has a single pelvic fin positioned like a revolver's trigger, two caudal fins (the bottom one resembling the butt of a gun and the top one being the hammer), two small pectoral fins and a dorsal fin near its mouth, as if a gun's front sight. Remoraid may be a distant cousin of Magikarp and Feebas due to the fact all three are fish-like Pokémon that evolve into completely different sea-creatures (even though Remoraid's evolved form is an octopus while Magikarp and Feebas evolve into sea-serpents).
Remoraid has the typical abilities of a Water type, but also learns various beam-based moves (Remoraid is one of the few Pokémon that aren't fully evolved to learn Hyper Beam), as well as Bullet Seed, Lock-On, Octazooka and Rock Blast to coincide with its gun-like appearance. Unlike most Water-type Pokémon, Remoraid is capable of using Fire-type attacks. The presence of a Remoraid has been known to make Mantyke evolve.
Remoraid are well-known for their ability to shoot jets of water from the surface with incredible accuracy - often this is used to shoot bugs out of the air. They tend to travel with Mantine by attaching to its fins. When evolution draws near, Remoraid travels downstream from rivers.
Remoraid are sea-dwelling Pokémon.
Remoraid are known to shoot down flying insect prey with precision blasts of water. In addition, they often cling to the fins of Mantine and devour leftover bits of food the larger Pokémon leave behind.
This Pokémon was unavailable prior to Generation I.
