Froakie (Japanese: ケロマツ Keromatsu) is a Water-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Frogadier starting at level 16, which evolves into Greninja starting at level 36.

Along with Chespin and Fennekin, Froakie is one of three starter Pokémon of Kalos available at the beginning of Pokémon X and Y.

Along with Chespin, Fennekin, Xerneas, and Yveltal, it was the first Generation VI Pokémon to be revealed to the public on January 8, 2013 as part of the Pokémon Direct broadcast.

Biology

Froakie is a quadruped, frog-like Pokémon. It has light blue skin, white hands, and a dark blue stripe from the center of its oval head to its nose. Its eyes, which have yellow sclera, black irises, and white pupils, protrude vertically from its head due to their size. Froakie produces a large mane of bubbles from its chest and back and has two small bubbles on its nose. The delicate yet flexible bubbles, called Frubbles (Japanese: ケロムース Keromousse), reduce the damage Froakie takes from attacks. It has three fingers and two toes on its hands and feet. Despite its carefree attitude, it is vigilant of its surroundings. Froakie is both light and strong, making it capable of jumping incredibly high.[1]

Trivia

  • Froakie is the smallest unevolved starter Pokémon.
  • Froakie has the highest base Speed of all unevolved starter Pokémon.

Origin

Froakie is based on a frog.[2] Its bubbling white foam is a reference to frog foam nests, created by some species such as the Tungara frog and grey foam-nest tree frog to protect eggs. Froakie's foam resembles a "backpack" of sorts, and has also been used in the anime as a makeshift hood, which is more than likely a reference to dorobō (burglars or thieves). In Japanese folklore and culture, dorobō use furoshiki cloth bags to hold stolen goods and mask their identity, referenced in Froakie's usage of its foam. In the older games, the Burglar Trainer class took on the appearance of dorobō. Considering its evolutions, its characteristics, as well as its association with thievery, Froakie may also be based on a ninja.

Name origin

Froakie may be a combination of frog, froth, croak, and rookie.

Keromatsu is a combination ケロケロ kerokero (onomatopoeia for a frog's croaking) and 沫 matsu (bubble or foam) or 飛沫 himatsu (spray or splash).
