Pecharunt (Japanese: モモワロウ, HepburnMomowarō) is a Poison/Ghost-type Mythical Pokémon introduced in Generation IX.

It is the trio master of the Loyal Three - Munkidori, Okidogi and Fezandipiti.

Biology[]

Physiology[]

Pecharunt is a small Pokémon with a purple body and pink face (and hands), with white eyes and mouth. It also appears to be wearing a white headband with 2 purple strands of purple "hair" covering it partially and has a ponytail that is pink tipped.

Much like the Guardian Deities, it has a shell that closes around it, in its case its shell resembles a peach with 2 protrusions jutting out of it and is pink on the inside. When enclosed, only its eyes are visible.

Behavior[]

Pecharunt enjoys controlling others, doing so in the form of mochi and chains. Depending on the situation on hand, they can either be loyal followers (such as the Loyal Three), or simply be enthralled servants.

While dormant, it will awaken to the presence of a Mythical Pecha Berry, a berry of extremely high quality made every few years.

Despite its harmless appearance, Pecharunt is very sly and will feign weakness by crying to gain the trust of sympathetic humans.

Natural Abilities[]

Pecharunt can control those who consume its sweet, toxic, poison, which it launches in the form of mochi and malignant chains. Those under its control have purple eyes and a strange aura enveloping them while having an uncontrollable urge to yell "Mochi" and chicken-dancing on the spot. The control, while absolute, can be seemingly lessened depending on the target's will and desire, which can result in them saying non-mochi words.

If its control is severed, the formerly afflicted will have no recollection of their actions while under control, though this may be on a case-to-case basis depending on the target's will and desire.

Pecharunt is the only Pokémon to naturally learn Malignant Chain. It is also the only Pokémon with the ability Poison Puppeteer, which confuses Pokémon poisoned by its attacks.

History[]

According to an unknown legend, Pecharunt was discovered by an old couple in a faraway land. The couple, who had no children of their own, adored Pecharunt. Pecharunt, wanting more of their affection, fed them its mochi, enthralling them in the process, though in a manner not like the present day. The couple would frequently ask Pecharunt to perform various tasks for them, some of which involved obtaining items. Pecharunt decided to get some assistance in the task, eventually discovering a small and weak Pokémon that desired to be stronger. After meeting it, Pecharunt granted its wish, and it became the Pokémon now known as Okidogi.

Eventually, the couple asked for a special mask in a faraway land known as Kitakami. During the journey, Pecharunt felt that it needed more companions, and discovered two more Pokémon; one that was clumsy and dim-witted but wanted to be smarter, and another with short, dull feathers that wanted to be beautiful. Pecharunt granted them their wishes, causing them to become known as Munkidori and Fezandipiti. When they arrived at Kitakami, they soon discovered the masks in possession of Ogerpon and her human companion. They stole three of the masks, with the man protecting the last one before mysteriously disappearing. As the four were about to leave, Ogerpon discovered and attacked them, killing Pecharunt's retainers despite their efforts to stop her. She then attacked Pecharunt, who retreated into its shell and simply rolled away into the forest. Pecharunt would eventually be discovered by an unknown person, and it would end up serving as a decorative item in Peachy's store in Mossui Town.

When the player obtains a Mythical Pecha Berry, its smell causes Pecharunt to awaken, causing havoc in the town by enthralling the villagers with its mochi. The player would return to Mossui Town along with Arven, Penny, and Nemona after being invited by Kieran, where they discovered Pecharunt. The player and Kieran eventually confront Pecharunt at Loyalty Plaza, where it has Nemona fight the player while Kieran holds the others at bay. Once they defeat Nemona, Pecharunt fights the player, but is ultimately defeated and caught, putting an end to its mischief.

    Trivia[]

    • Pecharunt is the first Poison-type Mythical Pokémon, excluding Arceus with a Toxic Plate.
    • Pecharunt has several similarities to The Loyal Three: namely all its stats excluding defense are at 88 (much like The Loyal Three's HP), and all 4 learn moves at multiples of 8. In addition, Pecharunt's closed up form resembles the tips of the trio's chain.
    • Pecharunt is the first Mythical Pokémon to not have the same name in both English and Japanese.
    • Pecharunt is the lightest Mythical Pokémon.
    • Internally, Pecharunt is referred to as Dokutaro. For some reason, attempting to use that name as a nickname will fail.
      • It is possible that Pecharunt was originally going to be named Dokutaro, but the in-game code was never changed.
    • Pecharunt is the first mythical to be unlocked via an item since Victini in Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version.
      • Pecharunt is the first introduced non-returned mythical to be obtained through DLC content.
      • Pecharunt is the first Mythical Pokémon to be encountered as a Boss Antagonist in a Story Event Content.
    • During the initial fight with Pecharunt, it will react to the following:
      • Should the player use one of the Loyal Three, Pecharunt will yell "Pechaaa! Chraaahhh!"; based on the relationship between the two, it is likely a sign of surprise and shock at their "betrayal".
      • If Ogerpon is brought in, it will yell "Grah! Pon PON!!!", signifying anger; Pecharunt and the Loyal Three used to traumatized it in the past.
    • Pecharunt is the first Pokémon since the Gastly evolutionary family to have the Poison and Ghost type combination.

    Origin[]

    Pecharunt, along with Ogerpon, Okidogi, Munkidori, and Fezandipiti, are based creatures of the Japanese folktale; Momotarō (Peach Boy). Pecharunt specifically represents Momotarō himself. Its ability to take manipulate a human's strongest desire via poisonous mochi might be inspired by the concept of mind control, as well as being based on how Momotarō recruited his companions by feeding them millet dango (which is a type of mochi).

    Its poison typing is reference to how Peach Pits contains a chemical called "Amygdalin" which poisonous if the pit is digested.

    Etymology[]

    Pecharunt is derived from "Pecha Berry", the Pokémon World's equivalent of peaches, and "runt". The “char” in its name could also be derived from “charm,” which references the way it charms its victims to do its bidding with its toxic mochi. Pecharunt might also be derived from "petulant".
