Cacturne (Japanese: ノクタス Noctus) is a dual-type Grass/Dark Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves from Cacnea starting at level 32.

Biology

Cacturne is a humanoid, bipedal Pokémon that resembles a green scarecrow made of cacti. Its face has two eye holes through which yellow eyes can be seen, and six smaller holes representing a grinning mouth. It has numerous spikes along the length of its arms, legs, and around its neck. A pattern of green rhombi extends down the front of its body. A female has a large dark green rhombus above a smaller one, while a male has three small dark green rhombi. There is a triangular, dark green feature on its head that resembles a hat with spiky tips.

Cacturne is a nocturnal Pokémon that rarely moves during the day, which allows it to hold moisture. At night, it searches for prey or follows travelers until they become exhausted. Prior to Generation V, Needle Arm was its signature move. It has lived in deserts for so long that its blood has transformed into sand.

Trivia

Origin

Cacturne appears to based on a cactus, possibly the saguaro, and a scarecrow. It could be associated with the nighttime because cacti are known as night (CAM) plants, since their carbon dioxide fixation process occurs during the night. Its face is similar to a classic Halloween jack-o'-lantern, referencing the tendency for scarecrows to have pumpkins for heads.

Name origin

Cacturne and Noctus may be a combination of cactus and nocturne (French for nocturnal).
