(Japanese: チョロネコ Choroneko) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves into Lepardas starting at level 20.

Biology

Physiology

Choroneko is a primarily purple-colored, feline Pokémon. Its head is large proportional to its body, and tufted at its ears and cheeks. Long, tapered violet markings above its green, feline eyes extend towards its ears. Tapered whitish markings above its eyes resemble eyebrows, and its muzzle, sporting a diminutive nose, is of similar coloration. Its neck, shoulders, back and hind paws are also whitish-colored. The lower portion of its forelimbs are purple, and the tip of its tail sports a curved, vaguely scythe-like extension.

Gender differences

None

Special abilities

Behavior

It likes to play with people's belongings and making off with them. In order to do so, it often puts up a cute act to put people's guard down before stealing their belongings. Even when caught red-handed, it usually gets off the hook due to its charming behavior. When angered, it fights back with its claws.

Trivia

  • Choroneko was seen first in the Pokémon Sunday special episode preview in September 6. It was later removed from the same preview, much like the revelation of Zekrom's secondary type earlier.
  • Choroneko, along with Poochyena, are the only Pokémon that is found on the starting Route earlier (without uses of things such as the Poké Radar) that is not part Normal, Flying, or Bug.
    • Coincedentally, both are of the Dark type.

Origin

Choroneko is based on a stray cat and loosely based on black cats.

Name origin

Choroneko's name comes from 猫 neko, cat, and possibly ちょろまかす choromakasu, to pilfer.
