Tapu Koko (Japanese: カプ・コケコ Kapu-Kokeko) is a dual-type Electric/Fairy Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation VII.

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

It is the guardian deity of Melemele Island, with Tapu Lele, Tapu Bulu, and Tapu Fini being the deities of the other islands.

Biology

Tapu Koko's head and torso are black with white markings on its chest, just above its eyes, and on top of its head. Extending from the top of its head is a large, orange plume with bristles along the back. There is a yellow marking covering the top bristle and half of the bristle below it. The bottom of this crest goes all the way to its neck, where it divides its face in half and creates a beak-like nose. It has small, blue eyes with yellow markings behind them. The lower half of its body is orange with four pointed projections: one short spine on the front and two short spines in the back, with one longer spine between them. These spines resemble a bird's tail feathers. Its thin arms have round, yellow structures encircling its shoulders. On each arm is a shell that appears to be half of a bird mask, and its hands end in two large claws to create a beak for the mask.

The mask itself is mostly yellow with black, orange, and white markings. There are three white triangular markings with black edges on the top of each half of the mask, which create diamond-shapes when the mask is closed. The 'eyes' consist of a white diamond connected to a slightly larger orange diamond, which is inside a larger yellow diamond. Each of these shapes is edged in black. On each half of its beak is an orange triangle with a white rim. There are wing-shaped structures on each side, toward the back. Tapu Koko is able to pull the mask together and hide its upper body inside, creating the impression of a stylized rooster.

This Pokémon is called the guardian deity of Melemele Island. It's known for protecting its home, but it is fickle and will not necessarily help people in need. However, it is very curious, and may come to play or battle with people or Pokémon that interest it. It is able to store electricity by closing itself inside the shells on its arms.[1] It has an explosive temper, but it instantly forgets what enraged it in the first place.

Trivia

Origin

Tapu Koko's mask appears to be a stylized rooster. Its design is similar to a totem pole. It may also be inspired by Kūkaʻilimoku, one of the four major Hawaiian gods and god of war and conflict, who is often represented by feathered idols.

Name origin

Tapu Koko may be a combination of tapu (Hawaiian for sacred or holy) and kokō (Hawaiian onomatopoeia for a rooster's crowing).

Kapu-Kokeko may be a combination of kapu (Hawaiian for sacred or holy) and コケコッコー kokekokkō (Japanese onomatopoeia for a rooster's crowing).
