Thwackey (バチンキー Bachinkii) is a Grass-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII.

Biology

Physiology

Thwackey is a yellowish-green monkey-like Pokémon. It resembles its pre-evolution in most aspects. Its humanoid hands are orange with green armbands and brown arms, while its fur takes on a lighter colour. The face pattern on its face has taken on a different shape. The pattern on it's face resembles sunglasses and above its eyes are two protrusions in the pattern that resemble two leaves. Its eyes have turned light yellow, while its tail has devolved into a brown bush similar to Chimchar's flame. Its stick has divided in 2 and acts as a hairclip for its hair, which has become rounder. It has a belly pattern similar to that of Rillaboom, its final evolution.

Behavior

Thwackey keeps a steady beat during its daily life. It walks while swaying back and forth to a rhythm and drumming with its sticks. Some of them even use the twin sticks.

Natural abilities

Thwackey uses the 2 sticks it carries to keep rhythm, spending most of their time to practice drumming skills, which are displayed as Rillaboom's fighting style, as represented by Rillaboom's signature move Drum Beating.

Evolution

Thwackey evolves from Grookey at level 16, then evolves into Rillaboom at level 35.

  • Sword

    The faster a Thwackey can beat out a rhythm with its two sticks, the more respect it wins from its peers.

  • Shield

    When it's drumming out rapid beats in battle, it gets so caught up in the rhythm that it won't even notice that it's already knocked out its opponent.

Trivia

Origin

Thwackey is likely based on a squirrel monkey (due to its distinctive muzzle) and it is an aspiring drummer.

Etymology

Thwackey is a combination of thwack, monkey, and key (as in a key of rhythm/tune).

Bachinkii is a portmanteau of bachi (the sticks used to play taiko drums) and monkey.
