Today’s post was written by mewistheancestor, who you might know from their fantastic series on Pokémon in our Biomes!

As apparently the weakest of all dragon types, one can’t help but wonder what evolutionary advancements Goomy has made to survive. Terrestrial, dependent on water, and sub-par stats, Goomy must utilize some innovative defense tactics to compensate for such a lack of offensive potential.

Because it is a newer Pokémon, there isn’t a whole lot of information provided through Pokédex entries on Goomy. As it retains several anatomical characteristics of gastropods in the real world, we can learn a lot about Goomy by relating it to various mechanisms gastropods have evolved that have helped them become one of the most abundant invertebrates in the world. One of said mechanisms is quite primal, and that is the lack of any sort of bone structure. In the anime, we see Goomy slip through extremely tight bars, which with a skeletal structure may prove to be quite difficult. 

As the slimy membrane that allows punches and kicks to slide off it harmlessly, I would imagine it to be almost balloon-like, and have quite a “squishy” complexion. Goomy, to me, is almost like a balloon that is half-filled with air, and if you’ve ever tried to pop a balloon with only half of its maximum potential air capacity, it can be quite difficult thanks to the surface tension and elasticity complex of the latex it is made of.

The reason balloons pop more easily when they’re filled with air is because latex balloons actually have small holes that allow minute amounts of air to gradually escape over time, and when punctured by something sharp, it creates a tear in these holes and too much air escapes at once, causing the latex to rip and the balloon to pop. When balloons don’t have as much air, these holes are smaller, and less likely to rip.

The same theory can be applied to Goomy; it has a thick membrane like a half-inflated balloon, which is stronger, more elastic, and harder to break. It could even be argued that Goomy secretes an extremely slippery fluid from these pores to help it slip out of any other Pokémon’s grasp or attack. This makes a lot of sense as if Goomy were to inflate itself, its skin would be more vulnerable to tears, and in return would need to excrete more of the slimy fluid for protection, but when it is at a normal volume the pores are smaller and don’t excrete as much because its surface membrane is more elastic and less likely to tear.

Even more so to support the idea that Goomy is a lot like a mucous-filled balloon, is that fact that balloons filled with water are extremely difficult to break if they’re not stretching the elastic enough. The water inside of a water balloon acts as counter pressure when it hits something. When squeezing an air-filled balloon there is more inward pressure because air is so much less dense and lighter than water, so it will be easier to break. However, squeezing a water balloon with a thick surface membrane will be more difficult to break because the heavy water will push back, and counteract the force acting upon it.

Goomy is like a water balloon with a thick membrane, and secretes an extremely slimy fluid through microscopic pores all over its body.
