Stunky (Japanese: スカンプー Skunpoo) is a dual-type Poison/Dark Pokémon.

It evolves into Skuntank starting at level 34.

Biology

Physiology

Stunky are small, skunk-like Pokémon that are dark purple with a white stripe running down their backs and cream underbellies. Their faces are large and rounded, with a narrow red nose, red-rimmed eyes, and two pairs of somewhat "V"-shaped cream-colored whiskers on the sides of its face. Feline-like features (including the ears) may relate to skunks being called polecats.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

It protects itself by spraying a foul smelling liquid from its hindquarters which lasts for twenty-four hours. This is a defensive tactic and not an actual attack which means it cannot be deflected.

Behavior

If threatened, they use their smell to deter would-be attackers. It is shown in A Secret Sphere of Influence! that Stunky does a handstand before and when it sprays like a spotted skunk.

Trivia

  • Despite being based on a striped species of skunk, Stunky sprays from a handstand like a spotted skunk, as seen in the episode The Secret Sphere of Influence.

Origin

It is based on a skunk, likely a hog-nosed skunk. It also bears resemblance to a cat of some sort, which is fitting as baby skunks are called kits or kittens.

Name origin

Stunky is a combination of skunk or stunk and stinky.

Skunpoo is a combination of skunk and pyoo (what someone says when something stinks).
