Scream Tail (Japanese: サケブシッポ Sakebushippo) is a dual-type Fairy/Psychic Paradox Pokémon introduced in Generation IX.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, but it appears to be an ancient relative of Jigglypuff.

Biology

Scream Tail is a pink Pokémon with a spherical body. It has pointed ears with black insides and small tufts of hair beneath them, tiny fangs, and large, yellow eyes with markings that resemble some form of makeup. On top of its head is a very long curled tuft of fur that extends down its back and is a darker shade of pink on the end, resembling a tail. It also has an actual tail on its backside.

In an article from an October issue of Occulture magazine, Scream Tail is described as a creature lurking somewhere in a Paldean forest, having the appearance of a Jigglypuff but with a ferocious aggression that leads it to attack anyone who comes near. Its primitive appearance and savage nature have prompted rumors that it could be a Jigglypuff from 1,000,000,000 years ago. It's named after a creature in the Scarlet Book that is described as having a distinctive tail and scream.

Trivia

  • Scream Tail is the only Paradox Pokémon whose apparent relative was never considered a fully evolved Pokémon.
    • It has the largest increase in base stat total from its apparent relative, with an increase of 300 points.
    • It has the largest disparity in size with its apparent relative, being 2.4 times taller.
  • Scream Tail's official artwork from Pokémon Scarlet and Violet resembles Jigglypuff's official artwork from Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen.
  • According to the magazine Occulture, its existence predates the first multicellular life on Earth by around 400 million years.[1]

Origin

Scream Tail is based on Jigglypuff. Its hostile nature, screeching voice, and sharp teeth could stem from bats or vampires. The vampire motif could be reinforced as a supernatural connection with Scream Tail’s now golden eyes as opposed to Jigglypuff’s bright blue eyes. Given the Paradox Pokémon's association with sensational paranormal tabloids, Scream Tail may also draw inspiration from Bat Boy.

Name origin

Scream Tail is literally scream tail.

Sakebushippo can be taken literally as 叫ぶ尻尾 sakebu shippo (screaming tail).
