Its hands have three fingers that end in a claw on each digit. Around its eyes, there is a black area resembling a bandit's mask, or a stylized pair of sunglasses. Krookodile has a periwinkle belly.

Trivia

Origin

Krookodile seems to be based on the Baryonyx, a fish-eating, slender-snouted dinosaur which heavily resembled a crocodilian, and possibly a Gavial, due to its long snout. Like Sandile, it is also based on crocodilians, more specifically a slender-snouted crocodile and the spectacled caiman. In line with its Dark type and names, it may also be based on a gang leader or simply a criminal, as the markings around its eyes bear great resemblance to triangular sunglasses, which are associated with manga and anime criminals, such as Ash's Squirtle.

Name origin

Krookodile is a combination of corruptions of crook and crocodile.

Waruvial is a combination of 悪い warui (bad/evil/sinful) and gavial.
