Grimer is a gooey, amorphous Pokémon with a body that has been generated by moon radiation. It features a huge mouth with a grayish tongue and two big eyes with beady pupils. Its purple slimy body includes a range of noxious bacteria that are so powerful that they deplete the soil and make it unfit for plant life.

It oozes a bacteria-rich fluid from all areas of its body at all times. During transit, pieces of it frequently fall off and produce new Grimers. It develops new toxic chemicals when mixed with another Grimer.
