Arrokuda (Japanese: サシカマス Sasikamasu) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII.

It evolves into Barraskewda starting at level 26.

Biology

In the mouth of Cramorant

Arrokuda is a brown and tan fish Pokémon resembling a barracuda. It has two big black eyes and two small jaws pointing upward, the latter of which it is very proud of. It also has five fins scattered on its body; two pelvic fins, two anal fins, and one dorsal fin. This Pokémon has two red spots, one behind each jaw, as well as three white scales on each side of its body for a total of six. Arrokuda lastly has three back fins on its tail resembling a ship propeller, starting off tan in color, but having a brown coloring on the end.

Cramorant is the natural predator of Arrokuda, and they grab Arrokuda in their mouth in battle if using Surf or Dive. Cramorant tend to spit out Arrokuda when attacked, however, causing the Rush Pokémon to fly out and smack nearby opponents. In Paldea, Wattrel is Arrokuda's predator.

Arrokuda can only swim in a straight line. Should Arrokuda see any movement near it, it will charge ahead using its sharp pointed jaws; however, its poor eyesight causes it to miss frequently. Its movements also tend to become sluggish when it eats too much, which is typically when Cramorant and Wattrel appear to swallow it up.

Arrokuda and its evolution, Barraskewda, are the only known Pokémon that can have Propeller Tail as an Ability.

Evolution

Arrokuda evolves into Barraskewda.

This Pokémon has no Pokédex entries in Brilliant Diamond, Shining Pearl, and Legends: Arceus.
Sword If it sees any movement around it, this Pokémon charges for it straightaway, leading with its sharply pointed jaw. It's very proud of that jaw.
Shield After it's eaten its fill, its movements become extremely sluggish. That's when Cramorant swallows it up.

Scarlet Arrokuda can swim quickly only in a straight line. The ones that become sluggish from overeating are the first to be targeted by flocks of Wattrel.
Violet It takes down prey by charging into them with its hard, pointed jaw. But Arrokuda's eyesight is poor, so this tactic has a low success rate.

Trivia

Origin

Arrokuda appears to be based on a barracuda. It also resembles other large predatory fish, such as the houndfish, arowana, and northern pike. In addition, it appears to draw inspiration from darts and arrows, with its caudal fin being shaped similarly to fletchings. Both Arrokuda and Barraskewda's colors and overall design also resemble Anglo-Saxon brooches which were fashioned and shaped like fish.

Name origin

Arrokuda may be a combination of arrow, arowana, and barracuda.

Sasikamasu may be a combination of 刺し sashi (pricking) and 梭子魚 kamasu (barracuda).
