Kricketune (Japanese: コロトック Korotock) is a Bug-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves from Kricketot starting at level 10.

Biology

Kricketune is a bipedal Pokémon with an insectoid appearance. Primarily red, there are three black, oval markings on its abdomen, a tan streak running down its neck to its belly, and a tan underside with a small, dark red marking above it. It has oval, gray eyes and a dark red, round nose. Black feelers with curled tips extend from either side of its nose, similar in appearance to a mustache. The male's mustache is longer than a female's. On top of its head are two antennae with conical bases, spherical centers, and long, thin tips. Kricketune has two small feet and a pair of black wings. This Pokémon’s arms are shaped similar to its antennae and are crossed over its chest when it cries. It can also allow its cry to resonate in its belly. Kricketune's melodic cry varies greatly and can be used to signal its emotions.

Nando has a Kricketune which first appeared in Dawn's Early Night. It has been used in both Gym battles and Pokémon Contests, having helped Nando enter the Sinnoh Grand Festival and the Lily of the Valley Conference.

Minor appearances

A Coordinator's Kricketune appeared briefly in Settling a Not-So-Old Score! participating in the Floaroma Contest, marking Kricketune's debut appearance in the anime.

Kricketune is seen living in Crown City as few of its many inhabitants in Zoroark: Master of Illusions. Two of them worked with the other Pokémon in surrounding Zorua to attack him, angry at Zorua for what Zoroark did to the city. Before a fight broke out, the Kricketune, along with the other Pokémon, were calmed by Celebi.

Trivia

  • Unlike most evolved Pokémon (except in the case of baby Pokémon), Kricketune is easier to obtain in the wild than its pre-evolution. In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, this is due to it being available at all times of day, while Kricketot is only found in the morning and at night, whereas in future generations, Kricketot is not found in the wild at all and can only be obtained by breeding Kricketune.

Origin

Kricketune appears to be based on a violin beetle, as well as crickets because they make sounds by rubbing their arms on their abdomen. Its body resembles string instruments. It also resembles music conductors, due to its mustache and wings that look like a cape.

Name origin

Kricketune is a combination of cricket and tune.

Korotock may be a combination of 蟋蟀 koorogi (cricket) and tock (onomatopoeia of a ticking clock) or a corruption of 曲 kyoku (tune).
