Classification: The Hyper-Intelligent Pokémon
Description: Delphin is one of the most intelligent species of Pokémon known. While it actually breathes air, it must live in the water so that it can use it as a constant coolant for its hyperactive brain, which would otherwise overheat. It expels the heated water through the blowhole on its back.
Does not Evolve
Trivia: Since the cooling requirements of their massive brains has forced Delphin to permanently live underwater, this has hindered their ability to interact with the world around them, such as losing the ability to grasp and move objects. To move past this hindrance, the already large brain of Delphin grew even larger and developed telekinetic powers to compensate. It’s name is derived from Delphinus, the scientific term for a dolphin, but shortened to sound more like Dolphin. Also, it calls to mind Delphi, as in the Oracle of Delphi, in reference to its psychic powers.
