Biology

Physiology

Perrserker resembles its pre-evolution, but its face has been changed dramatically. Its ears have become horns tipped with silver, similar to a Viking's helmet. The gold coin on its head has faded to Gray, while its face's fur has turned black, but its body has turned brown. It has 2 small horns on its head and 2 evil looking red eyes, with a menacing looking smile. It retains the beard from its pre evolution, while its claws are now permanently out, its arms slightly covered in black armbands. The claws can extend into daggers.

Behavior

Perrserker are rowdy characters who always desire to battle. The claws have become hardened after it has battled multiple times.

Trivia

  • Perrserker and Runerigus are the first Regional Pokémon evolutions that are separate from their pre evolutions' regular evolutions.
  • Despite common depictions, Viking helmets didn't have horns.

Origin

It is based on a cat and the stereotypical image of a Viking. While not evident in their typing, their Nordic inspiration may also draw upon the Norwegian forest cat, or fairy cats, whom were adopted as pets by the Vikings and were said to have pulled the sleigh of the Norse goddess Freya. Their behavior is similar to a berserker, which were Norse warriors who dressed in warrior skins and tried to drive themselves crazy before a battle, fighting like wild animals.

Etymology

Perrserker comes from the words purr (the sound a cat makes) and berserker.
