Hoothoot (Japanese: ホーホー Hoho) is a dual-type Normal/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves into Noctowl starting at level 20.

Biology

Physiology

Hoothoot are round, owl-like brown birds with very large, red eyes. Around these eyes are black rings, with extensions on the lower parts of the pattern resenbling stylized eyelashes. It has a black-colored crest on top which resembles the hands of a clock. Another notable feature is that it seems to only have one pink-colored foot with four toes; however, it actually has two feet, but one is usually hidden in its feathers underneath. Hoothoot’s owlish beak is pink in coloration, its wings are stubby, and its tail is short and mostly square-shaped with three tail feathers. Hoothoot’s underbelly is a shade of beige with tufts of feathers above its feet.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Being nocturnal, it has exceptional eyesight and hearing. It is capable of learning Template:Type2 attacks. It also has the innate ability to tell exactly what time it is, and can even function as an alarm clock. Hoothoot has the ability to learn the move Foresight, which reveals Template:Type2s through their tricks and nullfies their immunity to Fighting- and Template:Type2 moves.

Behavior

It is nocturnal, meaning that they are only active at night. It has an organ which works like a timepiece, which allows Hoothoot to hoot at the same time each night. Hoothoot keeps rhythm by precisely tilting its head in time. Hoothoot is also notable for its tendency to stand on only one foot at all times, switching feet so quickly the movement can rarely be seen. Its tendency to stand on only one foot is so strong, that even when attacked it does not brace itself using both feet. However, it has been depicted to fly with both feet visible.

Habitat

Hoothoot only come out at night, but are a very common sight anywhere in Johto or Sinnoh. Their nests are likely to be found in the trees of forests.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Hoothoot mainly feed off of Bug Pokémon.

Wings Alexander used to have a Hoothoot before it evolved.

Minor appearances

A Hoothoot was used by one of the students of the Pokémon Trainer's School in Gonna Rule The School!.

A Hoothoot chased Team Rocket while they were searching for Ho-Oh in some underground ruins in Battling the Enemy Within!.

A Hoothoot appeared in A Bite to Remember.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
EP121 Hoothoot Ash's Pokédex Hoothoot, the Owl Pokémon. Hoothoot stands on one leg, but uses both its powerful eyes to see clearly even through the darkest night.
This concludes the entries from the original series.

In the manga

Pokémon Adventures

Hoothoot was seen used by a trickster in Volume 8. He claimed to use Hoothoot as an accurate timekeeper to regulate a prize-winning game he was hosting, when in fact he was prompting Hoothoot to declare the time limit whenever a participant was on the verge of winning, thus preventing anyone from winning his game. He was busted, however, by Gold and his Aipom.

The same man and his Hoothoot are seen in Volume 11 and Volume 14.

Trivia

  • Hoothoot is the mascot of Pokéteca, the Spanish member of Encyclopaediae Pokémonis.
  • In Generation II Hoothoot could be found by using Headbutt on certain trees, and depending on the time of day it could be asleep. In the next Generation it gained the Insomnia ability, which prevents the Pokémon from sleeping.

Origin

It seems to be based on a combination of an owl and a clock, as its eyebrows are shaped like the hour and minute hands on a clock; in addition, it has the ability to keep track of time.

Hoothoot's appearance is based on that of the Japanese Eagle Owl, who were seen as wise, divine messengers of the gods.

Name origin

Hoothoot's name is simply onomatopoeia for the sound owls make.
