Barball is a dual-type Steel/Poison Pokémon.

It evolves into Barbviral when leveled up while knowing the move Toxic Spikes.

Biology

Physiology

Barball is a Pokémon that is a small poisonous metal ball. The main body is indigo, with dark gray metal around it that goes in a cross shape, four diagonal dark gray spikes, two small white eyes with pinprick black pupils, and many small pinkish-purple spikes on the top of the cross-shaped metal.

Gender Differences

None, because it's Gender-less.

Special Abilities

Barball shed their worn-out spikes for new, sharper ones every once in a while. The shed spikes are still incredibly venomous, and have been used as arrowheads in the past.

Behavior

Every once in a while, Barball will shed its worn-out spikes for new, sharper ones. These shed spikes have been used as arrowheads in the past. They must be avoided, because they're still incredibly venomous and very dangerous.

Habitat

Wild Barball are found in the grass on Routes 6 and 7.

Shiny Coloration Differences

For Shiny Barball, the indigo turns a fairly dark shade of pink, while the pinkish-purple spikes turn yellow.
