Absol (Japanese: アブソル Abusoru) is a Dark-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

Biology

Physiology

Absol has a dark blue face with a short, cat-like muzzle, a small, black, triangular nose, a scythe-like tail, and sickle-shaped growth on the right side of its head. Like owls, it seems to have one ear point upward and one point downward, supposedly to hear the exact location a sound is coming from. It also has an oval marking on the top of its head. Some believe this to be an abnormal development of its right ear, but it is actually a horn, as said in its PokéDex entry. Despite its appearance, this horn is actually very soft to the touch, particularly whenever Absol is not tense or angry. It has a snowy-white coat that is very soft to the touch.

Upon Mega Evolution, Absol's appearance doesn't change much except for larger horns. It's white fur has gotten fluffier and longer around its ankles. When Absol Mega Evolves, the fur on its back stiffens up giving it the appearance of wings. It can glide on the winds, but can't fly.

Shiny Absol's face, tail, claws and oval marking are red instead of dark blue.

Behavior

Absol is a very good-natured Pokémon that warns people of up-coming disasters by appearing before them. When it is not warning people in nearby cities, it spends its time up in the mountains. Sometimes it may even help people to guard their fields.

Despite having the ability to Mega Evolve, Absol itself strongly detests this form due to its overall tender nature. But it can still uses the power of Mega Evolution to faze and intimidate its enemies, even if it means scaring timid people to death.

Natural Abilities

Absol is capable of sensing an incoming disaster with its horn and goes to stop it.

Evolution

Absol can not evolve, however it can be Mega Evolved during battle as of Pokémon X and Y by use of the Absolite held item.

Appearances

Anime

An Absol made its anime appearance in RS108: Absol-ute Disaster.

Trivia

Origin

Absol may be based on the Kutabe, a creature that predicted a plague would come to Japan. It was stated to have an eye on its head, similarly to the dot Absol has on its head. It may also be based on the Bai Ze, a creature in Chinese mythology that is usually described as white with one or two horns on its head. It is known for its intelligence and ability to speak to humans. Absol's feline appearance and dark color may be based on the superstition that black cats give bad luck if they cross your path or common depictions of the Sphinx. Absol's face distantly resembles a yin-yang. This possibly signifies the contrast between its dark reputation and its noble personality. The shape of its horn may be inspired by a scythe, a common weapon associated with depictions of Death.

Its Mega Evolved form resembles most of the origins listed above, though it does grow wings, resembling a Sphinx or an angel.

Etymology

The name "Absol" could mean absence of sol, or sunlight, which may refer to the fact that there is no sunlight (literally) or happiness (figuratively) in a natural disaster, explains why it is a Dark-type, and also why it is a nocturnal Pokémon. Another possible etymology comes from the word absolve, i.e. Absol is absolved of any responsibility once the people have been warned. The name could also come from absolution. Its name could also mean absolute because white is an absolute color, and in the game the dark blue areas appear black, also an absolute.
