Girafarig (Japanese: キリンリキ Kirinriki) is a dual-type Normal/Psychic Pokémon.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Girafarig is a hoofed quadruped Pokémon with a long neck. There is a white blaze on its muzzle, which ends with its round, pink nose. It has two horns with bulbous tips on top of its head. Its front half is yellow with black spots, while its back half is black with yellow spots. The female Girafarig has a smaller dark section than the male. There are many triangular, pink spikes along its back.

Girafarig's tail possesses a head of its own. The tail's head has yellow eyes, a mouth full of sharp teeth, and a small brain. However, this head is incapable of independent thinking and relies on outside stimuli such as smell to guide its actions. If the tail smells something alluring, it will bite. The tail often mimics the head during feeding, and is able to warn the Pokémon of danger if it is sleeping. Girafarig lives in wide-open plains, where it feeds on the plant life.

Trivia

Girafarig's early design
  • An early design of Girafarig had a full-sized second head, reflecting its palindromic name, and rather resembling a Pushmi-pullyu.
  • Girafarig's name is a palindrome. It shares this distinction with Eevee, Ho-Oh and Alomomola.
    • Kirinriki, Girafarig's Japanese name, is also a palindrome when written in katakana.

Origin

Girafarig is based on a Giraffokeryx, which resembles the okapi and the giraffe.

Girafarig's small second brain may have been based on the Stegosaurus, an herbivorous dinosaur which is believed by some paleontologists to have possessed a second brain in its tail, improving its reflexes against predators.

Name origin

Girafarig is a palindrome based on giraffe, based on its two-headed and reverse appearance.
