Toxicroak (Japanese: ドクロッグ Dokurog) is a dual-type Poison/Fighting Pokémon.

It evolves from Croagunk starting at level 37.

Biology

Physiology

Toxicroak is based on the poison dart frog. Its appearance is much more humanoid than Croagunk, though it still maintains the appearance of an oversized bipedal frog. Its main body color is a dark blue or teal. Its head bears a gently-upward curling spike which seems to be a part of the skull, as it is covered in the same color skin as the rest of its body. Toxicroak's eyes are bright yellow, sinister and intimidating, with a small snake-like pupil. Its mouth is not much different from Croagunk's; it still looks as though it is wearing a mouth-guard, with its red upper lip curling upward at the ends in a very intimidating manner. Underneath its chin is a bulbous red vocal sack. Its arms are shaped much like those of Elekid, though not as thick and instead of three claws, Toxicroak has three fingers and one large red claw on the back of each hand. Its forearms have two black rings encircling them. Its legs are muscular and seem to be adapted for speedy attacks. It has three toes on its feet, with the middle toe red on each foot, and a sharp spike jutting out of its heels. Underneath the pelvic area Toxicroak has two white horizontal lines, which have moved down from Croagunk's chest. Toxicroak has thick black lines running down the sides of its body and surrounding its limbs, making them seem as if the limbs are detachable. The black lines go up into its face and surround the eyes before meeting in the middle of its snout, just above the upper lip.

Gender differences

A female has a smaller throat-sack.

Special abilities

Toxicroak can channel poison through the spikes on the back of their hands. They can also have the ability Dry Skin which hurts them when Sunny Day is in effect but heals them if it's raining. It also causes them to be weak to fire moves but water moves used against Toxicroak will act as if Toxicroak had Water Absorb, restoring its health. Toxicroak can also have the ability Anticipation which lets the player know if the foe has a move that is super effective against Toxicroak.

Behavior

Some Toxicroak can be cruel and fearsome, but a fair few and are quite laid-back and simply enjoy relaxing on rocks and in marshes, studying the views around them.

Habitat

Like its pre-evolution, Toxicroak live in moist areas around bodies of water.

In the anime

Toxicroak in the anime

Toxicroak made its debut appearance in Enter Galactic! as a Pokémon belonging to Saturn.

In Arriving in Style!, a Toxicroak was used in the Hearthome Collection by a rocker. It was the same color as Saturn's which implies that the color for the Toxicroak is its regular color in the anime.

Toxicroak made a brief cameo in the opening of Giratina and the Sky Warrior.

Saturn's Toxicroak reappeared in Losing Its Lustrous! and Double Team Turnover!. It helped its trainer and his comrades steal the Adamant Orb and Lustrous Orb.
