Kricketot (Japanese: コロボーシ Korobooshi) is a Bug-type Pokémon that is found in the Sinnoh region.

Biology

Kricketot is a red bipedal insectoid Pokémon. It has a pair of black, curled antennae attached to a deep red part of its head, and its mouth is similar. Its eyes are black with white pupils. Its arms and legs are short and black. It has a pale yellow collar around its neck, which is connected to its front, which has three lines going through it. Kricketot communicate with others of their kind by shaking their heads, which causes their antennae to hit each other and produce xylophone-like noises. These noises are more common around fall.

Gender differences

Females have larger crests than the males.

Behavior

Kricketot are famous for the xylophone-like sound their hard antennae make when they clang together. By shaking their heads back and forth, they can make their antennae ring musically; this is how Kricketot communicate with others of their kind. Though their antennae are mostly stiff, Kricketot can adjust them slightly near the tips. By subtly curling and uncurling their antennae, Kricketot can alter the lengths of their exposed sections, thereby changing the pitches they make when they clang together. Altering the pitch and the rhythm of their clattering enables Kricketot to send complex messages to their peers. During the mating season, male Kricketot will compete with each other to compose beautiful melodies in order to seduce mates. As their mating season coincides with the beginning of autumn, many people associate Kricketot songs with the arrival of fall. Their short legs make them rather clumsy at walking; they often stumble about while traveling, causing their antennae to clang together inadvertently (but still pleasantly and melodiously).

Evolution

Kricketot evolves into Kricketune at level 10.
