Goomy naturally spawns in the swamp and lake biomes of the overworld, and can be found in 3-star Tera Raid battles. It is usually found in the East Province (Area Three), in the South Province (Areas One, Three Four and Five), in the West Province (Area Three) and Glaseado Mountain, at all hours of the day.
As a Dragon type Pokémon, Goomy is weak to Ice, Fairy and Dragon-type moves, and takes less damage from Fire, Water, Electric and Grass-type moves. If it has the Sap Sipper ability, it becomes immune to Grass-type moves, and even gets a boost to its Attack stat when hit by one. It has a relatively high base Sp. Defense, and low base Defense stats, so use items to get them into the orange or red HP zone. Since it takes damage from Normal-type moves, having a strong Pokémon that uses False Swipe is also a surefire way to weaken it without accidentally knocking it over.
