Sharpedo (the Brutal Pokemon) is a relatively uncommon Water/Dark-type Pokemon found within sea routes and oceans all across the world. Terribly destructive and almost impossible to stop in the water, Sharpedo are vicious monsters that have the ability to tear apart and devour everything and everyone that gets in their path without a second thought, which they do so gladly. Make sure to keep your eye out for these brutal creatures whenever you journey across the sea; friend or foe matters not to these creatures
only to eat or die trying!
For reasons still not completely understood, Sharpedo are almost completely absent from fresh water environments; evolution seems to have given them the ability to withstand the salinity of the oceans, which in turn has allowed them to spread across the globe and develop a taste for oceanic prey that are otherwise completely absent from the mainland. This may be directly related to their attitude towards hunting, as Sharpedo are well-known for using reckless and violent attacks against larger prey in an attempt to surprise and kill them before they can lash out (a tactic that they utilize quite efficiently). Although Sharpedo do not possess enough stamina to swim for very long distances or resist damage against attacks, their incredible speed and brute strength is more than enough to win most battles. By forcing water through their bodies, Sharpedo can utilize their Aqua Jet attack to slam into opponents at speeds of up to 75 miles per hour (which is usually enough to break bones and most weak armors). This incredible movement speed is mainly due to their skin, which is designed to minimize drag while in the water; relatively few others are glad that Sharpedo are like this, however, as it also grants them the Rough Skin Ability. It is also interesting to note that evolution from Carvanha enables Sharpedo to utilize a host of nasty moves that are otherwise inaccessible to their pre-evolved form due to mental and anatomical differences, namely the Feint, Slash, Taunt, Skull Bash and Night Slash moves (though they also become unable to learn the Take Down attack as well).
Sharpedo possess incredibly strong jaws and teeth sharp enough to slice through iron sheets like they were paper; worse yet, their teeth grow back instantly if they snap off, so nothing is truly capable of outlasting their attacks forever. Unlike Carvanha, Sharpedo are large and strong enough to survive relatively easily on their own, so they are almost never seen among members of their own species; furthermore, Sharpedo have no need to be territorial because they mainly roam the seas as they wish, hunting whatever prey happens to be within their reach. This sort of tactic rarely proves to be an issue for Sharpedo, as their reputation precedes them everywhere; no matter where you go in the world, wild Pokemon fear Sharpedo because of their ruthless nature and barbaric hunting styles. These monsters will gladly devour anything from the old and dying to the newly born; to them, food is food. Unfortunately, this ruthless nature often puts Sharpedo into direct contact with humans aboard large sailing vessels and even oil tankers, which rarely goes well for the people; if Sharpedo become agitated enough, they will attack anything in sight, even if it isn't edible. A single determined Sharpedo can easily reduce a supertanker to scrap metal if even slightly agitated, so people and Pokemon alike tend to scatter when their volatile tempers flare up. Perhaps not surprisingly, their violent nature and cruel actions have led many people to nickname Sharpedo "The Bully of the Sea", a truly fitting title in practice.
Though they might be hard to control and even harder to satisfy, Sharpedo are powerful creatures that can easily devastate trainers if they are not prepared to deal with their brutal tactics. For Water-type specialists, these brutish beasts represent the ultimate challenge of patience and endurance; any trainer that can battle masterfully with one of these brutes is truly qualified to be considered a master of their type. If you dare to take on such a challenge, be careful about how you train them because with these brutes, the line between defeating an opponent and turning them into lunch is incredibly thin!
