Ogerpon (オーガポン Ogapōn) is a Grass-type Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation IX. It has a Normal and a Terastal form.

Biology[]

Physiology[]

Ogerpon is a bipedal Pokémon that is mainly black with leaf-like clothing (likely based on a haori) covering its body, Ogerpon has an orange face with yellow star-pupil shaped eyes. It wears various masks to use in battle that alter its typing:

Behavior[]

According to the people of Kitakami, the mask it dons is described as fearsome and it referred as the evil ogre that once attacked Kitakami until it was stopped by The Loyal Three, Okidogi, Munkidori and Fezandipiti.

However, as revealed by Yukito, Ogerpon originally traveled with another person before it was bullied by Okidogi, Munkidori, Fezandipiti and their leader, Pecharunt. While it defeated them, the majority of Kitakami's inhabitants believed they had sacrificed their lives to protect them from the ogre and began fearing Ogerpon. Due to their bullying, Ogerpon has poor relationships with the four, particularly Pecharunt. In reality, Ogerpon is kindhearted, yet timid.

Despite being timid around humans, Ogerpon does enjoy the Festival of Masks, being the one time where it can mingle with humans without fear.

Natural Abilities[]

Depending on the mask that Ogerpon carries, it can add an additional typing alongside its natural Grass, which in turn affects the typing of Ivy Cudgel, Ogerpon's signature move. Ogerpon is also capable of Terstallizing, which makes the masks grow in size and gain horns made out of crystal.

History[]

At an unknown point in time, Ogerpon was accompanied by a human companion and they arrived at Kitakami from a foreign land. They were shunned due to their strange appearance, and lived in the nearby Oni Mountain, isolated from the rest of the villagers of Mossui Town. Despite this, they were happy to have each other. The local mask maker took pity on them and created four special masks for the two to use, allowing them to mingle in the village festival, making them happy.

This happiness would not last, as the Pokémon Pecharunt and its retainers Okidogi, Munkidori and Fezandipiti, who had been tasked by an elderly couple to pilfer the masks, would discover them in Kitakami. Pecharunt's retainers located where they lived and attempted to pilfer the masks, only for Ogerpon's human companion to discover them. This resulted in a brawl with the companion severely beaten and only protecting the Teal Mask, while Okidogi and Fezandipiti stole the other three. When Ogerpon returned to its home, her companion was nowhere to be found and the masks stolen. Taking the remaining mask, she pursued Pecharunt and its retainers, defeating them all despite being at a disadvantage. The brazen act of violence near the village made the villagers think that Pecharunt's retainers were trying to protect the village, alienating Ogerpon even more. Ogerpon then returned to its home and has remained there ever since. Only the mask maker knew the truth, but he was also alienated and thus only kept the truth to his family, including his descendants.

During the events of The Teal Mask, Ogerpon would visit the village during the Festival of Masks. It dropped the Teal Mask and fled in fear of the player and Carmine, though they quickly learned of the truth from Yukito and helped restore the mask. When they attempted to return the mask after Kieran stole it (and unintentionally reviving the Loyal Three in the process), they found her being bullied by them. After making an example of Munkidori, the three left and took the masks from Kitakami Hall, while the two helped Ogerpon reclaim the masks. Upon returning back home, Ogerpon decided to let the player be its Trainer, as they reminded it of its former companion, entrusting all the masks to them.

Evolution[]

Ogerpon is not known to evolve into any Pokémon.

    Trivia[]

    • Due to how Terastalization is baked into their alternate forms, Ogerpon and Terapagos are incapable of having their Tera Type changed, even via gameplay modifications.
      • Ogerpon is also unable to become a Stellar type due to this limitation, inversely Terapagos' Tera Type is fixed as Stellar.
      • If a Zorua or Zoroark tries to disguise itself as Ogerpon after either it or Ogerpon Terastalizes, it will fail.
    • When equipped with the Wellspring and Cornerstone masks, Ogerpon is the only 100% female Water and Rock type.
    • Much like how its rivals in the Loyal Three have ties to number 8, Ogerpon has ties with the number 6, as every level it learns a new move is a multiple of 6.

    Origin[]

    Ogerpon, along with Okidogi, Munkidori, Fezandipiti, and Pecharunt, are based on the creatures of the Japanese folktale; Momotarō. Ogerpon specifically represents the oni of the folktale.

    The mask it carries may be based on Oni masks, which were once considered a bad omen but now act as a protective talisman.

    Ogerpon and the masks it wears is also based on Skull Kid and Majora's mask from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.

    Etymology[]

    Ogerpon's name may be a corruption of the word Ogre (the English term for Oni) and Pon (a Japanese suffix for nicknames).
