Sinnoh's regional bird. The Starly family is a three-staged family, much like the Pidgey family, but it proves itself to be far stronger. Gaining access to a number of powerful attacks such as Brave Bird and even more unusually, Close Combat, a Fighting-type move which effectively covers its weakness to Rock, Ice and Steel types, which most of its feathered brethren have problems with.

* JackOfAllStats: Along with Hydreigon, Garchomp is this compared to other pseudo-legendaries. None of its stats are very high, but they (Except for its Special Attack) aren't low either.

* MagikarpPower: Combined with CrutchCharacter. Gible and Gabite are rather weak (Though an Eviolite can alleviate this somewhat) but one of the first moves they learn is [[FixedDamageAttack Dragon Rage]], which is powerful at first, but then their lack of power becomes notorious. Then, at level 48, Gabite evolves into a LightningBruiser.

Dragon Pokémon that superficially resemble sharks with limbs, they are found in caves with geothermal heating. Gible looks somewhat silly due to its pudgy appearance, but as it evolves, it gets "sharper" and dangerous-looking. It is the fastest of the Pseudo-legendaries and its stats are in just the right places to make it an extremely powerful threat. As of ''X and Y'', Garchomp has a Mega Evolution with greatly boosted Attack and the Sand Force Ability, in exchange for a slight Speed drop.

* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: Gabite and Garchomp are based not only in sharks and dragons, also in theropods, mainly dromaeosaurids.
* FinalBoss: It's played as such in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Diamond, Pearl and Platinum]]''. Before Cynthia's Garchomp, no other trainer in the game uses one. Said Garchomp is also her highest-leveled Pokémon, has surprisingly high stats for a Pokémon used by an NPC trainer and is the most powerful in Cynthia's team. Cynthia would often send Garchomp out last, further exemplifying this trope.

* RatedMForManly: Garchomp sports an impressive build, most noticeable in the 3D games (The 2D games make it look like it has a lean frame). Mega Garchomp takes it further, and has what appear to be ''scythes'' for hands. With its spikes, the design on Mega Garchomp's body resembles a ripped biker's jacket.

* SuperMode: Garchomp gains a Mega Evolution in ''X and Y''. It gets a slight Speed reduction, but gets great boosts to Attack and Special Attack to make it a MagicKnight, the Sand Force ability to increase its Ground-, Rock-, and Steel-type moves during a Sandstorm, and minor boosts to its Defense and Special Defense.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Male specimens have a notch on their back fins, implying that they fight more often and leave scars. [[note]]The ones in the picture up there are female, if you haven't figured it out.[[/note]] The fact that the male Garchomp in ''VideoGame/PokeParkWii'' and its sequel has no notch in his fin (like most Garchomp in art and merchandise) supports this statement. Both male and female Garchomp gain 2 notches in their fin in Mega Evolution form.

* BreakoutCharacter: Piplup has become one of the most beloved Pokémon in Japan for its [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter cute design]], and as a result, it became one of the starring Pokémon in the anime during the ''Diamond and Pearl'' seasons.



* MightyGlacier: Empoleon actually has the third highest Special Attack out of all the starters[[note]]Only Delphox (114) and Primarina (126) are higher[[/note]], with nice bulk and plenty of type resistances to boot. It is only slightly faster compare to Torterra, though.

* KillItWithIce: Torterra's Grass/Ground-typing leaves it horribly vulnerable to Ice-type attacks.

Each of these three Pokémon reside in the three lakes that is at each corner of the Sinnoh region. The player character appears to develop the strongest bond with Mesprit, and unlike the other two, it plays a "game" with the player and roams the map.
