Flavor Info

Pokédex Entries

Mandicore's strength and hunting prowess have earned it a strong association with death in the minds of some cultures. It is sometimes said that the Grim Reaper's scythe blade is made from the jaw of a Mandicore.


Mandicore run so quickly that their brains don't have time to process what they see while they move. They collide with targets jaws-first and have a tendency to bite before they even see what they've hit.

Additional Info

Mandicore is the signature Pokémon of New Logoran Gym Leader Hercules.

Name Origin

mandible + Manticora, a genus of tiger beetle
