As Skuntank  ?  ?

Jupiter's Skuntank (Japanese: ジュピタースカタンク Jupiter's Skutank) is Jupiter's main Pokémon in the games, anime, and manga.

In the anime

History

Skuntank debuted alongside Jupiter in Double Team Turnover!. It proved instrumental in retrieving the Lustrous Orb for Team Galactic when it saved it from being destroyed when it was thrown through the air in the midst of a battle with Team Rocket, whom Skuntank then sent blasting off.

Skuntank's next appearance was in Unlocking the Red Chain of Events! where it battled Pikachu and Piplup. It also appeared in The Needs of the Three! and The Battle Finale of Legend! to help fulfill Team Galactic's plans, but was eventually knocked out by Cynthia's Garchomp's Giga Impact.

Personality and characteristics

Skuntank appears to be very loyal, remaining by Jupiter's side at all times, though it clearly also likes to sleep as it was resting while Jupiter used the Spear Key to track the orb down.
