It evolves from Snubbull starting from level 23.
Granbull is a purple, bipedal, bulldog-like Pokémon. It has a prominent lower jaw with two long, fang-like growths. Its upper jaw has two small fangs. The jaws are so heavy that the Pokémon has trouble keeping its head up. On the sides of its head are flat, curved ears, and its small nose is black. There is a black collar around its neck with two small white markings on it. Around its wrists are two black band markings, and it has a short tail.
Despite its fierce appearance, it is actually very timid. Unless Granbull is startled, it will not bite indiscriminately. If attacked, it will flail about to fend off its attacker. Granbull wanders around urban areas.
- Granbull and its pre-evolution share their category with Clefairy and Clefable. They are all known as the Fairy Pokémon.
- As the Ability Quick Feet did not exist until Generation IV, a Snubbull with either Intimidate or Run Away will always evolve into a Granbull with Intimidate in Generation III games. This means that in Generation III, Granbull is the only Pokémon with an Ability that evolves from a Pokémon with one of two possible Abilities that shares to Granbull's Ability.
- Granbull is the first Pokémon to evolve on-screen in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series.
- Granbull has the highest base Attack of all non-legendary Fairy-type Pokémon, at 120.
Granbull is based on a bulldog. Its category and type may reference the Cù Sìth, a mythological creature in Celtic mythology whose name literally translates to "dog fairy".
Granbull may be a combination of grand and bulldog or bully (referencing its tendency to scare foes with its fangs or even bite them). It may also reference grumble (referring to its grumbling, growling tendency).
