Behavior

Amped Form Toxtricity are known to be short-tempered and extremely confident. This form aggressively attacks anything that makes eye contact with it. It slowly absorbs stagnant water for the toxin it contains. It then breaks down the poison in order for Amped Form Toxtricity to generate electricity.

Low Key Form Toxtricity are known to be selfish and have a high regard towards its strength. Unlike its Amped form counterpart, Toxtricity prefers to taunt opponents into fighting it when making eye contract with them. It can generate 15,000 volts of electricity. Low Key Toxtricity looks down at anything that would challenge it.

Gigantamax Toxtricity usually attacks with the guitar-shaped electric mass it harnesses.

Natural Abilities

By clawing at its protrusion located on its chest, both forms of Toxtricity can generate electricity. The sound it makes resembles that of an electric string instrument; a standard guitar for Amped Form, and a bass guitar for Low Key Form.

Gigantamax Toxtricity's main weapon is the excessive energy it generates while Gigantamaxing. It can create more electricity than a thundercloud and can also store up to one million liters of poison. Due to the poison that penetrated its brain, Toxtricity has lost control of itself. It rampages across the land by contaminating it with toxic sweat which gushes and pours down like acid rain. Gigantamax Toxtricity can create a gigantic mass of electricity shaped like a guitar from the electricity it stores. This mass is powerful enough to create a giant huge crater.

Toxtricity is the only known Pokémon capable of using the moves Overdrive and G-Max Stun Shock.

Trivia

  • No other Pokémon has same type matchup of Electric/Poison-type except for Toxtricity and its pre-evolution Toxel.
  • It is likely that it suffers from Hearing Loss as its ability halves damage from sound based moves.
  • It has a unique Base Stat Total of 502.

Origin

Toxtricity appears to be based on Agama lizards (which are brightly coloured and share the same spiky hairdo as Toxtricity), and/or tree frogs. Its overall appearance seems to be a Newt larva metamorphosing into a adult (since its spiky hair resembles gills) which may imply why it has the poison type.

It is also based on the theme of punk rock or rock music guitarists, having a mohawk. They themselves also appear to be based on electric guitars and basses, with the Amped Form having six strings just like a guitar while the Low Key Form has four strings just like a bass. Appropriately, the colorful aposematic nature of poison dart frogs, and its nature to deliberately seek out tainted and stagnant water to ingest may hearken to psychedelic rock, which was prominent in late 20th Century UK. Gigantamax Toxtricity's tail resembles a utility pole. Its G Max Move is reminiscent of the action of an artist slamming the guitar on the floor, an action often done at the end of concerts.

Etymology

Toxtricity is a portmanteau of the words toxicity and electricity.

Sutorindā is a portmanteau of "string," "salamander," and possibly "guitar."
