The Pomple is a Maxis-made creature, present in the final game. It appears similar to the Groob, but it is a dull brown color instead of the bright orange that the Groob has, it has a carnivorous reptile mouth instead of an omnivorous leech mouth and the leaves on its back have all withered, instead it has long tube-like appendages. It is a poor fighter, with only a weak bite, and when it comes to singing, all it can do is a wretched guttering noise. Pomples are also very slow due to their slug-like shape, and cannot sprint or sneak in any way. A Pomple will probably only attack early creatures, and it is easy prey for other, stronger creatures.
