Krookodile (Japanese: ワルビアル Warubiaru) is a Ground/Dark-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

Biology

Physiology

Krookodile is a large, bulky reptilian crocodile-like Pokémon. Its body is mainly brick-red in color, and covered in black stripes with pointed ends; it has a round gray belly. It has considerably large and razor-sharp teeth and claws. Around its eyes, there is a black patch resembling a bandit's mask, or a stylized pair of sunglasses. It somewhat resembles the dinosaur Baryonyx or Tyrannosaurus rex.

Behavior

Krookodile is known as the Bully of the Sands. While aggressive by nature, Krookodile is patient enough to bury itself underneath the sand and wait for prey to pass by. Its jaws boasts immense strength and can rip through a large car and heavy iron plates. Once Krookodile latches onto its prey with a jaw lock, it will not let go. Krookodile always cooperate with Flygon during hunts, using Flygon's sand storm as cover to ambush prey. Its eyes can be used as binoculars; Krookodile uses this ability to detect objects and potential prey from afar.

Evolution

Krookodile is final evolution of Sandile, and evolved from Krokorok as of level 40.

Ash's Krookodile.

Trivia

  • Krookodile has the highest base stat total of any non-legendary Ground-type Pokémon released in the Fifth Generation (509), edging out Excadrill's 508 base stat total by one point. Not counting Hydreigon among Dark-types, Krookodile is in-turn only edged out by Zoroark in terms of base stat totals by one point (510).
  • No other Pokémon has same type matchup of Ground/Dark-type except for Krookodile and it's pre-evolutions.
  • Krookodile shares some similarities with Feraligatr:
    • Both are crocodilian Pokemon, are part of a three-stage evolutionary line, and rely mostly on physical attacks rather than special-based ones.
    • The only difference is that Krookodile is a Ground type with a secondary type while Feraligatr is a pure Water type.

Origin

Despite being named Krookodile, it is actually modeled after the Gavial, a species related to the crocodile. This is also reflected in its Japanese name, which is a combination of Waru, form the word warui, meaning bad, and Vial, from Gavial. It also somewhat resembles the dinosaur Baryonyx or Tyrannosaurus rex.

Etymology

Krookodile's English name is derived from a corruption of the word "crook" (a villainous person), and "crocodile".

Its Japanese name is a combination of Waru, form the word warui, meaning "bad", and "Vial", from Gavial.
