Croagunk (Japanese: グレッグル Gureggru) is a dual-type Poison/Fighting Pokémon.

It evolves into Toxicroak starting at level 37.

Biology

Physiology

Croagunk resembles a dark blue bipedal frog, with white bands around its waist area that resemble bandages and red and black markings on its hands and feet. Its coloring and poisonous nature suggest that it is based on poison dart frogs. The markings on its body make it look like a Muay Thai fighter, and its jutting teeth make it appear to be wearing a mouthguard. The black around its eyes and the white bands make it look like an injured fighter with black eyes and broken ribs. Its orange cheeks are filled with a poison that runs to its fingers, allowing it to poison opponents by stabbing them.

Gender differences

The two white stripes that run across the female Croagunk's abdomen will be higher up than the male.

Special abilities

Whenever its middle finger glows purple, it appears to be channeling its poison via its skin and onto its hand to use its Poison moves. Fluid squeezed from its finger, although poisonous, is a significant ingredient in remedies for lower-back pain.

Croagunk sitting alone

Behavior

Croagunk are generally mischievous and mean. A few Croagunk, however are more comfortable being alone, simply staring at the views around them. Croagunk may also make noise by expanding its poison sacs.

Habitat

Croagunk live in moist areas close to bodies of water, such as swamps and marshes, or forests where there is very little light. However, as the mascot of Pastoria City, Croagunk can also be found in abundance there as well.

Trivia

  • Croagunk's English name, along with numerous others, was released on February 13, 2007. Due to the poor quality of the image, it was believed its name was "Croalurk."
  • Croagunk and its evolution are the only Pokémon to have the Poison/Fighting type combination.
  • Croagunk is one of few Pokémon to have its handheld game sprite differ from its 3-D image. While in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum it is shown to have pink cheeks, its 3-D models, official artwork, and anime appearance show it with yellow-orange cheeks.
  • Croagunk is the mascot of Pastoria City.
  • In Platinum, in front of the Pastoria Great Marsh, if the player stands behind the Croagunk Wall with his/her head sticking out of it a wild Croagunk may come by, cry out, and then walk to the Great Marsh.
