Land Snake Pokémon

#206 / Normal / 1.5 m / 14.0 kg

Dunsparce has a drill for its tail. It uses this tail to burrow into the ground backward. This Pokémon is known to make its nest in complex shapes deep under the ground. It hides deep inside caves where no light ever reaches it and remains virtually motionless there. It can float just slightly using its wings.

History

Designed by Hironobu Yoshida, Dunsparce made its debut in Pokémon Gold and Silver for Gameboy Color in 1999. Based upon the Tsuchinoko cryptid of Japan, it takes its appearance from the flat, alcohol-loving serpent. Dunsparce's design relates to the cryptid's other name- bachi hebi, or “bee snake."

Below are the Spaceworld Demo prototypes, to the Dunsparce we know and love today.

Shopping

Here's a list of websites I frequently check for Dunsparce merchandise! It's always best to search with ノコッチ for more results. I also search for terms like ポケモン 金 and 銀, since sometimes there are older item lots that won't list every Pokémon.
