Malamar is a Pokémon that seems to be an upside-down squid. From the top of its skull, many purple tentacles with vivid blue undersides grow. It features yellow eyes with black sclerae, a dark pink beak-like lips, and eyelids that are lighter purple. It features a dark purple main body with six round yellow lights on the front and rear. A yellow band almost completely surrounds its upper body. A translucent mantle covers its main body, with two white fins on the bottom that serve as legs. A lengthy tentacle with dark pink at the top and white, scythe-like fins at the ends may be seen on either side of the mantle. Malamar’s fins are known to have razor-sharp edges.
Malamar has great hypnotic abilities, which are claimed to be the most powerful of any Pokémon. Malamar utilizes its hypnotic abilities to compel people to perform its will. People often use this skill for bad purposes. Malamar’s hypnotic abilities are supposed to have had an influence in a number of historical events. It attracts victims with its flashing pattern and seductive movements, then entraps them in its tentacles. After that, digestive secretions are used to finish off the prey. Prior to Generation VIII, its hallmark move was Topsy-Turvy.
