Porportise (Japanese: Dorufiin, ドルフィン) is a pure Water-type Pokémon. It evolves into Aquaphin while holding the item "Sea Fairy's Tear" when leveling up. It is exclusive to Pokémon Metal.


Porportise is a dolphin-looking Pokémon and has a rather plump pink body with a purple belly and markings along the body. These markings are placed along the side of the body, around the eyes, and under the fit.


It is a very swift swimmer despite its appearance and can obtain fast speeds by beating its tail quickly up and down. It is capable of jumping high into the air and performing tricks. It uses its nose to bash into nearby enemies and ejecting water from it's spout.


It is a kind Pokémon that enjoys being with others. It can often be seen swimming with other Porportise's alongside boats and ships. It is said to have a wide variety of communication that humans are unable to hear.


Porportise feeds mostly on fish and other aquatic animals.


It can be found in oceans and bays.
