Krokorok (Japanese: ワルビル Waruvile) is a dual-type Ground/Dark Pokémon.

It evolves from Sandile starting at level 29 and evolves into Krookodile starting at level 40.

Biology

Krokorok is a reptilian Pokémon with a mostly tan body, pink stomach, black back, and long tail. It is classified as a quadruped, though it is more often seen on two legs. It has six thick, black stripes on its body: one at shoulder level, one around its midsection, one around its hips, and three on its tail. Each stripe is topped with a triangular spike on its back. The stripes around its midsection cross two spikes, one on each side of its back. Its arms are short and thin, with a black band around them at the elbow. Each hand contains three short fingers, each with a white claw. Its legs are thick with a band around each ankle, and a stripe above the knee that does not wrap around. Its flat feet each have three white claws. Krokorok's head is ovoid with a long snout, and small eyes surrounded by a thick black membrane. Two of its front and rear teeth are visible overlapping its lower jaw. A black stripe sits on the bridge of the snout just behind its large nostrils.

Krokorok prefers to live in the desert, usually in small groups. The black membrane surrounding its eyes protects them from sandstorms and acts as a thermal detector. This allows Krokorok to see the temperature of different objects, which also gives it exceptional night vision.

Trivia

  • No other Pokémon have the same type combination as Krokorok and its evolutionary relatives.
  • Krokorok is the only Pokémon with a base stat total of 351.
  • Almost all of Krokorok's stats are ten points higher than Sandile's stats; the only exception is Speed, which is just higher by 9 points.

Origin

Krokorok seems to be based on the Baryonyx, a fish-eating, slender-snouted dinosaur which heavily resembled a crocodilian. Like its pre-evolution, it is also based on a crocodile, more specifically a slender-snouted crocodile and the spectacled caiman. Its eyes, pose, and stripes make it appear to be a criminal, which is supported by its Dark type.

Name origin

Krokorok is a combination of corruptions of crocodile and rock.

Waruvile may be a combination of 悪い warui (bad/evil/sinful), evil, vile, and crocodile. It may also derive from gavial.
