Pyukumuku (ナマコブシ Namakobushi) is a water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VII.

Biology

Physiology

Pyukumuku is a marine Pokémon with an ovoid, black body. Its face has two beady, pink eyes and a white mouth shaped roughly like a star or Daimonji. Two lines of three pink spikes run down each side of its back. The middle spike of each line is about twice as long as the others are. A fluffy white puff forms its tail.

Behavior

Pyukumuku hate when its spikes and mouth are touched touched, and they will spit out their organs when someone steps on them. If stepped on, it will expel its fist-like organs and smack the perpetrator. Pyukumuku tends to find a spot it likes and stay there, even returning to the same spot if moved. Once all the food in its favorite spot has been consumed, it will continue to stay there to the point of starvation.

Natural abilities

Pyukumuku is capable of spitting its organs out through its mouth. The white organs can take different shapes, such as a fist. Its body is coated with a viscous fluid that allows it to stay on land for a week without drying out. This fluid is also beneficial to people as a moisturizer.

These Pokémon line the beaches. The sticky mucous that covers their bodies can be used to soothe sunburned skin. How convenient!
Ultra Sun
The tradition known as Pyukumuku chucking started from the custom of throwing Pyukumuku back into the sea after they wash onshore.
