Exploud (Japanese: バクオング Bakuong) is a Normal-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Loudred starting at level 40. It is the final form of Whismur.

Biology

Physiology

Exploud is a large blue creature whose most obvious feature is its huge mouth, where its large tongue can be seen. It sports two hippopotamus-like teeth on each jaw. It also has extruding tubes with holes along its body: seven along the crest on its head, four on its elbows and knees, two along its back and two on the end of its two tails. These holes serve a dual purpose: They can suck in air to increase Exploud's noise based attacks and they can make noise themselves. The holes along its head-crest and tails are tipped with yellow, and the holes along it back have yellow semicircular patterns at the sides. Exploud's red eyes also add to its look of intimidation. There is also a semicircle on its belly, which is rarely seen because of its giant mouth. Its arms have three thin stripes below its elbow and three fingers. Exploud’s feet have four claws, three in front and one in back, and a yellow paw pad on its underside.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Exploud can be an extremely loud Pokémon, capable of triggering earthquakes with the tremors made by raising its voice. Its loud cries can even be heard from six miles (ten kilometers) away. However, it only raises its voice when in battle. Otherwise, it produces a variety of flute-like noises to communicate with others.

Behavior

It uses sound from the sound-generating organs over its body to communicate its feelings, adjusting the tone and volume to produce the variety of whistle-like cries it emits. It only uses its voice for battle since it is too loud to use in normal situations. In the cases that it does, an Exploud violently inhales from the points on its body before it looses a bellow.

Habitat

Exploud like tall grass, but they usually prefer caves.

In the anime

Major appearances

Exploud in the anime

Guy's Loudred evolved into Exploud in Exploud and Clear. After it evolved, it disobeyed and then left its Trainer. Later in the episode, Team Rocket tried to kidnap the Exploud and Guy tried to stop them from capturing it. When the Exploud saw what Guy was doing for it, the Exploud began to listen to him once again.

An Exploud made an appearance in Pikachu's Island Adventure along with a Hariyama. Both were members of a gang led by Meowth.

Minor appearances

In Lights, Camerupt, Action! an Exploud played the role of a villain in a movie that Elijah and his Camerupt were delivering to a small village.

In Team Shocker! an Exploud was briefly seen in the performance stage of the Solaceon Contest.

In Barry's Busting Out All Over!, Dawn remembered that Barry sang a duet and with an Exploud at Twinleaf Town's town festival.
