Cetoddle (Japanese: アルクジラ, HepburnArukujira) is an Ice-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IX.

Biology[]

Physiology[]

Cetoddle is a large, round pokemon with a single tooth or tusk on the lower half of its mouth, and a horn sticking out of its forehead. It has large, round eyes, a stubby pair of legs, arms shaped like fins, and a tail fin, all attached to the round body that seems mostly to be its head. It also has pink spots on its body.

Behavior[]

Cetoddle is believed to be a close relative of Wailmer. This is disputed however as Wailmer used to be a land dwelling species before becoming a sea-fairing one, which is the direct opposite of Cetoddle which came from the sea and began living on the land. After becoming a land dwelling species, Cetoddle began living in cold regions where it enjoys eating snow for the minerals inside. They live in packs, generally about five per pack.

    Trivia[]

    • Yusuke Kozaki revealed himself to be the designer of both Cetoddle and Cetitan, as well as Varoom and Revavroom.[1]

    Origin[]

    Cetoddle appears to be inspired by different cetaceans, most notably right whales based on their highly arched mouth, round body without dorsal fin, belly without ventral grooves, and horns near their jaw (which may be based on the callosities found on the head and mouth of right whales). Right whales were heavily hunted for thick blubber and oils and were named because they were "right whales to hunt" due to their inquisitiveness and calm natures. These correspond with that of Cetoddle and Cetitan to be friendly by nature and possess thick fats and drop Cetoddle Grease on occasions, and North Atlantic Right Whales were heavily hunted in Iberian Peninsula, the inspiration source of Paldea, and were called "Balea Vasca" ("whales of Basque"), and is now virtually extinct in European and African waters. North Atlantic right whale's scientific name (Eubalaena glacialis) means "true whales of ice", somewhat corresponding to the type of Cetitan.

    Additionally, Cetoddle's Ice type may allude to the bowhead whale, which are close relatives to right whales and are also known as "Arctic whales" or "Ice whales" or "Polar whales" or "Greenland right whales". Its white coloration brings to mind a beluga whale or Moby Dick, an albino sperm whale that appears in a novel of the same name. Its horns may also make it inspired by a narwhal. Furthermore, Cetoddle's anatomy to possess hind-legs may be based on prehistoric, four-limbed cetaceans.

    Cetoddle may also be based on the ningen (ニンゲン), a creature from modern Japanese folklore that is said to live in subantarctic oceans (which may be another explanation for its Ice typing). The creature is often described as being both human- and whale-like in appearance and is often depicted as bipedal (which may explain Cetoddle's legs). The ningen is also described to be completely pale white in color.

    Etymology[]

    Cetoddle comes from "cetus" (Latin for "whale") or "Cetacea" (the order of animals including whales and dolphins) and "toddle".
