Cufant (Japanese: ゾウドウ Zoudou) is a Steel-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII.

It evolves into Copperajah starting at level 34.

Biology

Cufant is a roughly spherical elephantine Pokémon with a body made of copper. The tip of its trunk is shaped like a spoon or shovel, and Cufant uses it to dig in the ground for rocks and ore to eat. It has four stout legs, and each leg has a single anterior nail. Cufant has a bulbous dome atop its head and a short bobtail.

Most of its body is a tangerine color, but its ventral side is lighter. It's also covered in patches of green where rain has tarnished the copper in its skin. It has two such patches at the base of its trunk, and a dappled tarnish pattern on its domed skull and dorsal side. The tip of its trunk and the rims of its nails are also tarnished green, and it has a green patch behind each of its eyes.

Cufant is said to be tremendously strong, carrying loads of over five tons with minimal effort. Cufant and Copperajah are docile in nature, and were introduced to the Galar region to assist with heavy labor. It travels in herds, searching for food in caves in the morning.

Trivia

Icon for Galar Minerals
  • Cufant and its evolution are the only Pokémon that are in the Field and Mineral Egg Groups.
  • The company logo for Galar Minerals depicts a Cufant head.
  • Cufant's English category, "Copperderm", may be a combination of copper and -derm (suffix derived from an Ancient Greek word meaning "skin") or Pachyderm. The name can be taken to mean "copper skin".

Origin

Cufant resembles an Indian elephant calf with a spade for a trunk. It may also be based on elephant statues common in Indian art and Thai art. The way its copper body tarnishes in the rain may be inspired by how metallic copper oxides into cupric oxide when exposed to the environment.

Name origin

Cufant may be a combination of Cu (element symbol for copper), cuprum (the Latin name for copper from which the symbol is derived), or cute, and elephant or infant.

Zoudou may be a combination of 象 (elephant) and 銅 (copper) or 童 (child). It may also reference 銅像 dōzō (bronze statue).
