Skuntank (Japanese: スカタンク Skutank) is a dual-type Poison/Dark Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves from Stunky starting at level 34.

Biology

Skuntank is a medium-sized mammalian Pokémon that resembles a skunk. It has purple, spiky fur with several tan stripes. The whiskers present on its pre-evolution have since vanished or have been replaced by furry purple tufts on the sides of Skuntank’s face. Its legs are tan, and the tan coloration of its underside now forms a spiky pattern. Skuntank is known for its noxious fluid which smells dreadful. It can spray this fluid over 160 feet, and the longer it allows the liquid to ferment within its body, the more powerful the smell. Unlike its pre-evolution and real-life skunks, Skuntank spray this from its tail tip instead of the base. Skuntank prefers to nest in large, prickly bushes in heavily wooded areas.

Major appearances

Jupiter has a Skuntank which she first used in Double Team Turnover!. It later reappeared in Unlocking the Red Chain of Events! where it was seen guarding Looker and Team Rocket, The Needs of the Three! where Jupiter prepared to attack Ash, Dawn, and Brock before Cyrus stopped then and again in The Battle Finale of Legend! where it was defeated by Cynthia's Garchomp.

A Skuntank also appeared in Classroom Training! under the ownership of Jeremiah, a student at Snowpoint's Pokémon academy. It appeared again in Sliding Into Seventh! where it used its Stench Ability to force Team Rocket out of a shed where they had hidden themselves.

Minor appearances

A Coordinator's Skuntank appeared in the Sinnoh Grand Festival in Last Call — First Round!, performing along with a Toxicroak.
