Gumshoos (Japanese: デカグース Dekagūsu) is a Normal-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Yungoos.

Biology

Gumshoos is a long-bodied Pokémon similar to a mongoose. Most of its coat is brown with a yellow underside that extends over the top of its tail. It has an additional yellow stripe that starts on its forehead and ends between its shoulders. There are tufts of fur near its shoulders, hips, and around the base of its tail. These tufts in combination with its yellow underside create the impression of an open trenchcoat. Its ears are rounded with a small notch, and are located on the sides of its head. It has a short snout with a pink nose, a large mouth full of pointed teeth, eyes nearly hidden under its yellow stripe, and tufts of yellow fur on its chin. There are three black claws on each of its four short legs. Despite its length, Gumshoos is thick bodied and has a wide, flat tail with longer fur on the tip.

Gumshoos hunts by waiting along its prey's known travel routes. Due to its tenacious personality and ability to withstand intense hunger, it is able to wait for its prey for long periods without eating. Once the sun sets, this Pokémon's stamina is depleted and it will fall asleep where it stands.
