Flavor Info

Pokédex Entries

Mambar are extremely timid Pokémon and will freeze up at the first sign of trouble. They reflexively straighten out in an instant when frightened, and their special, metal-like scales make their bodies rigid and very hard to damage. As soon as the scary thing is gone Mambar will relax and slither away at high speed.


Mambar are notoriously difficult to train—they rarely use their potent venomous bite even when provoked, preferring to freeze in fear instead. Their peculiar defensive behavior is well-known, however, and has become a euphemism in Zencalian popular culture.

Additional Info

Mambar are actually fairly popular among Accolantian troublemakers—young ne'er-do-wells see it as both a cool poisonous Pokémon and, when that fails to impress because Mambar are about as menacing as a soggy tissue, a handy blunt implement useful for causing property damage and threatening other kids.
