Klink (Japanese: ギアル Giaru) is a Steel-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Klang starting at level 38, which evolves into Klinklang starting at level 49.

Biology

Physiology

Klink resembles two interlocking gears with six teeth each. The teeth of the gears are a light gray, while the central regions are much darker. They have round turquoise noses and small mouths that are held wide open.

Gender differences

Klink are a genderless species.

Special abilities

Behavior

Once two bodies have decided to join together to form a Klink, they cannot combine with any others or they will become separated. They generate their life energy by spinning.

Habitat

Klink live in caves and fields in the Unova region.

According to the Unova region's Professor, Professor Juniper, the first recorded evidence of this Pokémon dates to around 100 years ago, in the Chargestone Cave; she believes that they suddenly appeared in the cave at that time.

Diet

As Klink can generate the energy they need in order to live by spinning their gears, it is unknown if they need to eat actual food.

Trivia

Origin

Klink is based on a pair of interlocking gears, more specifically either spur, helical, or herringbone gears. The Klink line's Shiny coloration may have been based on copper gears, since their noses have turned green as copper does when it oxidizes into such compounds as copper carbonate, forming a patina. Klink also resembles the simplest concept of the perpetual motion machine, as it is just two gears which repeatedly spin each other.

Name origin

Klink is a corruption of clink (onomatopoeia for light metal striking a surface). It may also involve link, possibly referring to how the two gears are connected.

Giaru is derived from gear.
