Trivia

  • Unlike most evolved Pokémon, except in the case of baby Pokémon, it is far more common in the wild than its pre-evolution. This is a product of Kricketune being available at all times of day, unlike Kricketot.
  • Kricketune is the only fully evolved pure bug-type to date *. Every other fully evolved bug-type Pokemon have a secondry type.

Origin

Kricketune appears to be based on a violin beetle.

Name origin

Its name comes from cricket and tune. Its Japanese name may come from 蟋蟀 koorogi, cricket, and a corruption of 曲 kyoku, tune.

In other languages

  • German: Zirpeise - A combination of zirpen (to chirp) and Weise (tune).
  • French: Melokrik
  • Korean: 귀뚤톡크 Gwittultokkeu
