Skuntank (Japanese: スカタンク Skutank) is a dual-type Poison/Dark Pokémon.

It evolves from Stunky starting at level 34.

Biology

Physiology

Skuntank are medium sized mammalian Pokémon that are dark purple with a white stripe running down their backs. Its appearance is slightly cat-like with fangs and smaller cheeks than that of Stunky's. Its cheeks now have a tan coloration. The whiskers present on its pre-evolution have since vanished or have been replaced by a furry purple tufts on the sides of Skuntank’s face. Skuntank’s legs are tan, and the tan coloration of their underside now form a spiky pattern. Skuntank’s most notable and obvious feature, however, is that their tails are much longer and are often laid out on their backs and over their faces.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Skuntank are known for their noxious fluid which not only smells dreadfully disgusting, but is possibly flammable and explosive, allowing it to learn Fire-type attacks like Flamethrower and Fire Blast as well as explosive attacks like Explosion. It can spray this fluid over 160 feet, and the longer it allows the liquid to ferment within its body, the more powerful the smell. Unlike its pre-evolution and real-life Skunks, Skuntank spray this from their tail tip instead of the base.

Behavior

It is likely that like Stunky, it uses its foul smelling spray to defend itself.

Habitat

Skuntank prefer to nest in large, prickly bushes in heavily wooded areas.
