Lickitung (Japanese: ベロリンガ Beroringa) is a Normal-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Lickilicky when leveled up while knowing Rollout.

Biology

Physiology

Lickitung is a bipedal Pokémon with a thick, powerful tail. It has soft, pink skin with semicircular yellow markings on its belly, and fully circular markings on its knees. It has small, beady eyes, and its hands have thumb-claws and circular yellow markings on the undersides. The most famous feature Lickitung possesses is a long prehensile tongue, which it uses to manipulate objects and possibly, to consume them. Aside from being very receptive to all sorts of tastes, its tongue is very dexterous. The tongue is very likely connected to its huge tail, as when it is extended, the tail quivers.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

The licks from their 6'6"-long tongue can paralyze foes and leave a tingling sensation. Their saliva is gooey and sticks to everything. Their tongues are shown to be quite strong, as they can lift Trainers with it, which was shown in Deceit and Assist.

Behavior

These Pokémon appear to be like Slowpoke, rather easy-going and almost dopey, hence having Own Tempo and Oblivious as abilities. They also like to lick things they come across, but get put-off by some sour substances. They do not mean harm when they lick people for food traces. Lickitung also uses its tongue to lick its body clean.

Lickitung, being heavy Pokémon, use their weight to their advantage with a large portion of their attacking strategies. For instance, they are capable of using Stomp, Slam or Rollout.

Habitat

Lickitung are a rare sight, usually staying in dense forests near large bodies of water. They are very rare in Kanto, but seem to be far more common in Johto and Sinnoh.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Lickitung uses its tongue to catch prey, and thusly seems to be a carnivore.

Trivia

Origin

It may have been based on any number of lizards with extending tongues, particularly the blue-tongued skink or maybe even chameleons. It also shares traits with anteaters. Lickitung could also be an iguanodon, as it shares its characteristic "thumbs" with it.

Name origin

Lickitung is a combination of lick and a corruption of tongue.

Beroringa may be derived from べろ bero (tongue), ベロベロ berobero (onomatopoeia for licking), and possibly ring (referring to the patterns on its body) or a corruption of the English word lingua (which refers to a tongue or an organ resembling a tongue).
