Snorunt (Japanese: ユキワラシ Yukiwarashi) is an Ice-type Pokémon.

It evolves into either Glalie starting at level 42 or, if female, Froslass when exposed to a Dawn Stone.

Biology

Physiology

Snorunt is a small, black Pokémon with an egg-shaped body, round fingerless hands and toeless feet. It has blue eyes and a upside down grin. This grin, along with how it is usually posed, gives Snorunt the expression of shivering. Snorunt's body is covered with a yellow cone-shaped cloak with an orange rim. The back of the cloak has three orange rhombus-shaped spots on it.

Gender differences

There are no physical differences; however, female Snorunt are able to evolve into Froslass when exposed to radiation from a Dawn Stone.

Special abilities

Snorunt is capable of several Ice-type moves, such as Ice Beam and Avalanche. Snorunt apparently has powerful jaws, since it can learn Crunch and Ice Fang.

Behavior

They usually move about in small groups of about five or so. Snorunt are also social creatures, known to visit houses and greet humans.

Habitat

Snorunt live in icy caverns, but they're quite hard to find. They can withstand cold of -150 degrees Fahrenheit (-100 degrees of Celsius).

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Snorunt's diet mainly consists of snow and ice.

Trivia

  • As of Generation V, Snorunt and its evolutions' Egg Group (Fairy and Mineral) are unique.
  • Snorunt's Platinum Pokédex entry seems to reference the Koro-pok-guru, a race of small people in Ainu folklore. They are said to live under the leaves of plants in harmony. The Ainu live in Hokkaido, the very place in Japan on which Sinnoh is based.

Origin

Snorunt is based on a "Yukinko", a Japanese sprite said to emerge when it snows, according to folk tales, as well as the zashiki warashi, a spiritual creature found in the folklore of Iwate Prefecture. It also seems to be a stylized version of a person wearing a yuki mino, a traditional Japanese winter costume worn long ago by many people in the snowy parts of Japan consisting of a conical snow-cloak made of straw. Generally, Yukinko are depicted as small elf-like creatures wearing yuki mino.

Name origin

Snorunt is a combination of snow and runt (a smaller-than-average animal).

Yukiwarashi may be a combination of 雪 yuki (snow) and 座敷童子 zashiki warashi (a spiritual creature found in the folklore of Iwate Prefecture).
