Yamper are a species of dog-like Pokémon indigenous to the Galar Region. It is similar in appearance to a Welsh Corgi.


Domesticated Yampers are very playful creatures and will often think their trainers are playing fetch with them when they throw out PokéBalls in attempts to catch even more Pokémon. Because of this however, the Yampers can collect a ball used in a failed catch attempt and return it to its owner. It will not try and catch further balls however, presumably because it still awaits the one it brought back to be thrown again.
