[[Category:{{{type1}}}-type Pokémon|{{{ndex}}}]] Miltank (Japanese: ミルタンク Miltank) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

Miltank is a mostly pink colored bipedal cow with small horns and a long tail with a black ball in the end. She has a cream colored belly with four udders. She also has black spots on its back and a black "hood."

Gender differences

Miltank is a female-only species. Many fans consider its male counterpart to be Tauros, despite the facts that Tauros was introduced a generation earlier and that Miltank cannot produce Tauros eggs.

Special abilities

Miltank is the only known Pokémon that learns Milk Drink.

Behavior

Unlike Tauros, Miltank are much more placid Pokémon and spend most of their time eating and digesting grass and other plants. However, they also possess a stubborn streak that may be unwilling to comply if they don't receive the proper training required. When properly trained, they can be a very useful asset, both in milking and battling.

Habitat

Miltank are happiest in fresh pasture.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

They mostly consume grass, which they convert into milk.
