Kricketot (Japanese: コロボーシ Koroboshi) is a Bug-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Kricketune starting at level 10.

Biology

Kricketot is a bipedal, bug-like Pokémon. The majority of its body is red with a streak down its front and black cape-like marking on its back. Its head is encircled with a flat, white structure similar to a collar. Two hard, black antennae with curled tips are connected to the head by a dark red segment. A similar dark red segment forms this Pokémon's nose, and it has small, black hands and feet. By shaking its head and rubbing its antennae together, it is able to create a xylophonic sound that it uses to communicate.
