Murkrow (Japanese: ヤミカラス Yamikarasu) is a dual-type Dark/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves into Honchkrow via Dusk Stone.

Biology

Physiology

Murkrow is a small bird Pokémon with black feathers. Murkrow's feathery tail bears the resemblance of the end of a broom. Murkrow has a crooked, yellow beak that resembles a witch's nose, a feather-crest that resembles a witch's hat and semi-circular eyes with red pupils.

Gender differences

Females have a smaller feather crest.

Special abilities

Being a Dark-type, it has most of the abilities and attributes that are standard to them. It also has an effect of unluckiness about it, but it mostly applies to its opponents. It's also possible to train one to repeat words like a real world parrot, although Chatot is more famous for this ability.

Behavior

Murkrow have a fondness for anything that's sparkly and has been known to steal things such as jewelry from people and hide them in all sorts of secret locations. It is these kleptomaniac tendencies that make Murkrow rivals with Meowth. Whenever a Murkrow finds itself being chased, it will lead the attacker to a dark mountain trail where the foe is bound to get itself lost.

Habitat

Murkrow usually live in forests or swamps, but they have been known to move into cities.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Murkrow, like Honchkrow, are scavengers, and will eat most anything.

In the anime

Murkrow have been seen causing trouble in Big Town. The first instance was in Pikachu & Pichu in which Pikachu landed on their pole.

A flock of Murkrow stole Ash's badges in All That Glitters.

A Murkrow was owned by a witch named Lily in Hocus Pokémon.

A group of Murkrow appeared in Destiny Deoxys.

While Ash and friends were searching for a restaurant in Like a Meowth to a Flame, they were attacked by a flock of Murkrow. Ash's Pikachu tried to scare the Murkow away with Thunderbolt, but they kept on coming back. Tyson's Meowth got rid of the Murkrow by using Fury Swipes on them.

Paul has a Honchkrow who evolved from his Murkrow. It debuted in Top-Down Training!.

Several Murkrow appeared in The Rise of Darkrai. However, the Murkrow that appeared had higher pitched voices than in the anime.
