Gumshoos is a Normal type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the Stakeout Pokémon.

Gumshoos' method of targeting prey is the exact opposite of Yungoos's strategy. While Yungoos prowls around, Gumshoos stakes out its prey's usual routes and waits patiently for it to come by.

Gumshoos has a tenacious personality, which is why it targets one prey for so long without wavering. But when the sun goes down, it runs low on stamina, falling asleep right on the spot. Gumshoos can withstand a great deal of hunger. It's able to stay perfectly still while waiting for its prey, keeping watch without eating a thing.

Gumshoos evolves from Yungoos.

Pokédex entries

Sun When it finds a trace of its prey, it patiently stakes out the location...but it’s always snoozing by nightfall.
Moon It adores having Rattata and Raticate for dinner, but as it’s diurnal, it never encounters them. This Pokémon boasts incredible patience.
Ultra Sun Although it wasn’t originally found in Alola, this Pokémon was brought over a long time ago when there was a huge Rattata outbreak.
Ultra Moon Patient by nature, this Pokémon loses control of itself and pounces when it spots its favorite meal—Rattata!
