Treecko (Japanese: キモリ Kimori) is a Grass-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves into Grovyle starting at level 16, which evolves into Sceptile starting at level 36.

Along with Torchic and Mudkip, Treecko is one of three starter Pokémon of Hoenn available at the beginning of Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire.

Biology

Treecko is a small, green, bipedal reptilian Pokémon. It has yellow eyes with long, narrow pupils. Treecko's hands and feet each have three digits covered with tiny spikes. These spikes allow it to scale vertical walls with ease. Its stomach and throat are red. It also has a line across its stomach resembling a pouch. Treecko has a large, dark green tail with two separate lobes that it uses to sense humidity. This ability allows it to predict the next day's weather.

Treecko is rarely found in the wild and is more common in captivity. However, when in the wild, Treecko lives inside overgrown forests. It makes its home in tall trees and will attack anyone that comes near its nest. Because of its territorial nature, it is known to be the protector of the forest's trees. Treecko is known for its calm and collected personality. It will never panic under any circumstances, even when faced with a bigger foe.

Main article: Professor Birch's Treecko

Treecko was the only starter Pokémon of Hoenn that was not recruited into a protagonist's team in Trying to Trounce Torchic, instead being passed in favor of Mudkip because he looked ugly to the beauty-obsessed Ruby. When he was finally destined to meet his partner, the huge rainstorms caused by Kyogre sent him and the final Hoenn Pokédex drifting away, and after he had finally been recovered by Wally and evolved, he was sent flying away and was lost again, even after the Pokédex was returned. Evolving again into a Sceptile, he was this time caught in the wild by Guile Hideout and stolen by his proper owner, Emerald.
