Cofagrigus (Japanese: デスカーン Desukarn) is a Ghost-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Yamask starting at level 34.

Biology

Cofagrigus is a blue and yellow sarcophagus with red, menacing eyes and four ebony hands that appear to be shadows. A simply designed face is prominent on the "forehead" of the Pokémon. Its real face is covered up by parts that slide out of the way when it is active. White, sharp fangs create a taunting smile and flamboyant patterns veil the coffin. The coffin is said to be made of gold. Ancient legends once told Cofagrigus could eat nearby humans and turn their lifeless bodies into mummies. It lives in tombs and ruins.

Trivia

  • Cofagrigus has the highest base Defense stat of all Generation V Pokémon.
  • No other Pokémon has the same Egg Group combination as Cofagrigus and its pre-evolution.
  • Previously, due to the censor that prevents Pokémon with offensive nicknames being traded on the GTS, an English language Cofagrigus could not be traded without a nickname. However, the filter has since been altered to allow Cofagrigus to be traded without a nickname.

Origin

Cofagrigus's design is based off a sarcophagus. It was also most likely based on supposedly cursed Egyptian tombs. Any trespassers in the tombs are said to fall under a "curse" from its owner, which is said to cause illness, serious injury, or death. The hype of cursed tombs was made popular when many people in a team of explorers in 1922, who had opened and entered King Tutankhamun's tomb, began dying after the exploration. Cofagrigus's ability to passively turn other Pokémon into mummies that in turn transform other Pokémon into mummies is very similar to the popular culture depiction of the spread of a "zombie virus" in horror films.

Name origin

Cofagrigus may be a combination of sarcophagus and egregious, while also involving coffin. It may also come from grim.

Desukarn may be a combination of death and 棺 kan (coffin).
