Watchog is an upright, meerkat-like Pokémon with large cheeks and a single, pointed incisor sticking out of its mouth. It is mainly reddish brown with beige cheeks and neck. There is yellow striping on its chest and tail. Its hands, feet, and tail tip are white. Its red eyes have small black pupils and a yellow stripe. Black markings accentuate the eyes at their outer ends. Its tail is almost exclusively depicted standing up straight, although it can also be kept in a relaxed position.[1]

Its cheeks can hold a large amount of seeds, which it collects and spits at its opponents. Watchog possess night vision and can view its surroundings in the darkness.

Trivia

  • In Black and White, Watchog was the only Pokémon to have the same EV yield as its pre-evolution, and the only evolved Pokémon to only give a single EV, giving one EV in Attack.
    • Because its EV yield was 2 Attack in Black 2 and White 2, Watchog is the only Pokémon to have its EV yield changed within a generation.
  • Watchog is the only evolved Pokémon with a catch rate of 255.

Origin

Watchog is based on a groundhog and possibly a meerkat or prarie dog. Its design is based on a road worker, with the body resembling a protective suit and the yellow stripes forming a safety vest.

Name origin

Watchog is a combination of watch and groundhog. It may also be a play on watchdog, a dog used to guard.

Miruhog may be a combination of 見る miru (to observe) or meerkat and groundhog.
