Dracozolt (パッチラゴン Patchiragon) is an Electric/Dragon-type introduced in Generation VIII.

Biology

Physiology

Dracozolt is (or at least appears to be) a combination of two different dinosaurian Pokémon. The top half derives from a small, bipedal Pokémon, with yellow skin, dandelion face, "crowned" head, long snout, skinny dandelion neck and slender arms. The bottom half derives from a large, quadrupedal Pokémon, with green skin and magenta stripes, claws and back spikes.

Behavior

Dracozolt are believed to use their lower body to fight off enemies, which made it unbeatable, but it went extinct after it was depleted of its food source, plants. Apparently, after the two halves of the fossils were fused to create it, the rear end's muscles are used to produce its electricity.

Pokédex entries

  • Sword

    In ancient times, it was unbeatable thanks to its powerful lower body, but it went extinct anyway after it depleted all its plant-based food sources.

  • Shield

    The powerful muscles in its tail generate its electricity. Compared to its lower body, its upper half is entirely too small.

Trivia

  • Dracozolt, alongside the other Galar Fossil Pokémon are the first Fossil Pokémon that:
    • Cannot Breed.
    • Lack Rock as a Primary or Secondary typing.
    • Are revived from more than one fossil.
    • Are Genderless.
  • Dracozolt is the shortest of the Galar Fossil Pokémon.

Origin

Dracozolt and the other 4 Galar fossils, concept wise, are inspired by the Crystal Palace Dinosaurs, which are now known to be based on inaccurate reconstructions.

Dracozolt and Arctozolt's top half may be inspired by the paraves, a group of ancient dinosaurs that may have evolved into birds. It may also be based on the Archaeopteryx that Archen is inspired by. These 2 ideas are supported by the fact that their Signature Move, Bolt Beak, hints that its jaw is beak like.

Dracozolt and Dracovish's bottom half may be based on the Stegosaurus, a genus of quadruped dinosaur with a spiked tail and plates on its back.

Alternatively, it may simply be based on a small theropod reassembled incorrectly (in this case, missing a midsection and part of its arms), its herbivorous behavior deriving from that of theropods like Therizinosaurus.

Etymology

Draco- may come from draconic(something that resmbles a Dragon) or directly from dragon.

-zolt may be a corruption of jolt, which may hint to its electric type as one of jolt's synonyms is shock, which can be linked to electric shock. It may also come from volt.

Patchiragon comes from パチパチ (pachipachi, the sound of sparks in Japanese) and "dragon."
