Dunsparce (Japanese: ノコッチ Nokocchi) is a Normal-type Pokémon.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Dunsparce is a serpentine Pokémon with a primarily yellow body, blue underside, and blue-and-cream-striped back. Its head is round with a wide mouth extending under its jowls and curving up toward the middle of its face. Its chin is blue with two rounded prongs. Its eyes—round and rimmed with blue—are kept closed, revealing its cream-colored eyelids. On Dunsparce's upper back are two small, white, bird-like wings split into two sections each. Its body ends in a striped, drill-like tail. Though Dunsparce can float slightly with its wings, it avoids detection by burrowing into the ground with its tail. It lives immobile in caves and beneath the earth, where it makes maze-like nests.

In the anime

Major appearances

Dunsparce made its anime debut in The Dunsparce Deception, where an entire town was full of children with Dunsparce.

A Dunsparce appeared in The Path That Leads to Goodbye!. Ash tried to catch it, but Iris's Axew bumped into Ash's Pikachu, which led to the Dunsparce escaping.

A Dunsparce appeared in Under the Pledging Tree!. Ash wanted to catch it, but then realized he didn't bring any Poké Balls with him, thus letting the Land Snake Pokémon get away.

Minor appearances

A Dunsparce was seen in the wild in The Legend of Thunder!.

A Dunsparce made a cameo appearance in Following a Maiden's Voyage! in Ariados's web.

A Coordinator's Dunsparce appeared in Team Shocker! participating in the Performance Stage of the Solaceon Contest.

In the manga

Dunsparce in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Crystal and her Chikorita captured a wild Dunsparce in A Flaaffy Kerfuffle where it along with a Flaaffy had been stranded on Bill's boat.

Much later, in Volume 23, Lostelle, who has a Dunsparce, faxed Bill and informs him of Deoxys's rampage and Giovanni's subsequent appearance on Three Island.

Many volumes later, in the Diamond & Pearl chapter, Roseanne is attacked by a pack of Yanmega controlled by Mars. Diamond told her to take refuge in the hole her Dunsparce dug.

Trivia

Origin

Dunsparce is based on the mythical Tsuchinoko, a serpentine cryptid of Japan. Similar to Bigfoot or the Chupacabra, sightings and reports appear in Japanese media; however, hard evidence is always lacking. Tsuchinoko are 30 cm to 80 cm long, with a large head and poisonous fangs. Its body is thicker than its head and tail. The noises it makes resemble squeaks, chirps and snores. Unlike real snakes, which slither from side to side, a Tsuchinoko wiggles ahead in a straight line. The Tsuchinoko curls its body to leap through the air. Moreover, the fact that Dunsparce, a snake-like creature, has wings also brings to mind the motif of the Feathered Serpent, a prominent deity or supernatural being in many Mesoamerican religions. In addition, Dunsparce shares some traits with bumblebees, including their stripes, tiny wings, stinger-like tail, and the fact that they burrow into the ground. This may be a visual pun inspired by the name "bachi hebi" (literally "bee snake"), which the Tsuchinoko is also known by.

Name origin

Dunsparce may be a combination of dun (grayish yellow or gloomy), dunce, and sparse (referring to its rarity).

Nokocchi is an anagram of ツチノコ Tsuchinoko, a fabled snake-like creature.
