Trivia

  • In Generation V, Kricketune is able to learn Struggle Bug via level-up. However, it cannot learn it as a TM.
  • When slowed down, Kricketune's cry sounds like a cello, an instrument it slightly resembles.
  • The Pokédex entry mentions that they have variable cries, however in the games they only have one cry.

Origin

Kricketune is based off of a cricket or a violin beetle. Its body structure may reference the structure of a violin or cello and its arms and antennae resemble a bow, a tool that is used to play said instruments.

Etymology

Kricketune comes from the words cricket and tune.

It's Japanese name, Korotock, comes from koorogi (cricket), tick-tock (the onomatopoeia of a metronome ticking) and kyoku (tune).
