It evolves into Drapion starting at level 40.

Biology

Physiology

Skorupi resembles an over-sized, pale purple scorpion. Its claws and tail have been swapped, giving it two stingers and a claw tail. The miniature jaws, claws, and tail claws are white. Its arms are attached directly to its head, close to its teal eyes. A pointed marking joins the eyes. The head, arms, two tail segments, and all four legs are light blue, while the body, tail end, and other two tail segments are a darker shade of blue.

Gender differences

Skorupi have a deadly poison in their claws allowing them to use Poison-type moves. Its mouth also contains a powerful jaw enabling it to use Bite and Crunch. It can also survive a year without food.

Habitat

Skorupi lives in deserts and dry areas, though it can be found in marshy areas such as the Great Marsh.

Trivia

Origin

Skorupi is based on a scorpion. It has some characteristics that resemble a vinegarroon, a similar arachnid. Its Water 3 Egg Group designation may be a reference to the ancient group of arthropods known as sea scorpions that used to inhabit the oceans and may have been the ancestors of modern scorpions.

Name origin

Skorupi and Scorpi are a shortening of scorpion.
