Sawk (Japanese: ダゲキ Dageki) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, though seems to be related to Throh.

Biology

Physiology

Sawk is a Fighting-type Pokémon with a lean body, blue, rocky skin, and seemingly wearing a white and black martial arts outfit. Its head is almond-shaped, with a skewed "Z" shape over its nose and left eye. The collar of its outfit is rimmed in black, and the sleeves sport a crisscrossed pattern. Sawk’s hands are blue with three fingers. It has a black, martial-arts style belt, and its cool “pants” have black patches on the knees. Its feet have three digits.

Gender differences

Sawk are a male-only species.

Special abilities

Once a Sawk's belt is tied, it becomes even stronger.

Behavior

A Sawk will become angry if its training is interrupted.

Habitat

Sawk usually train on mountains.
