Biology

Physiology

Desukaan is a blue and yellow sarcophagus with red, menacing eyes, with four ebony hands that appear to be shadows. A simply designed face is prominent on the "forehead" of the Pokémon. White, sharp fangs create a taunting smile and flamboyant patterns veil the coffin.

Gender differences

Special abilities

According to its Pokédex entry in Black, ancient legends once told Desukaan could eat nearby humans and turn their lifeless bodies into mummies.

Behavior

Desukaan imitates an elegant coffin to lure in unsuspecting grave robbers and punishes them.

Trivia

Origin

Desukaan's design is based off a sarcophagus. It was also most likely based on supposedly cursed Egyptian tombs. Any trespassers in the tombs are said to fall under a "curse" from its owner, which is said to cause illness, serious injury, or death. The hype of cursed tombs was made popular when many people in a team of explorers in 1922, who had recently opened and entered King Tutankhamun's tomb, began dying after the exploration. Desukaan's ability to passively turn other Pokémon into mummies that in turn transform other Pokémon into mummies is very similar to the popular culture depiction of the spread of a "zombie virus" in horror films.

Name origin

Its name seems to be a combination of デス desu, death, and 棺 kan, coffin.
