Baltoy (Japanese: ヤジロン Yajilon) is a dual-type Ground/Psychic Pokémon.

It evolves into Claydol starting at level 36.

Biology

Baltoy is a small Pokémon that resembles a tan figurine made out of clay or mud. There are arching, red markings over its eyes, which usually appear closed. A red stripe encircles its body, and forms a ring on its belly. It has flat appendages that resemble arms. A spike protrudes from the top of its head and another, smaller spike under its body. It moves by spinning on this single, pointed foot, and balance upright on it to sleep. Baltoy is usually found in ruins, where it congregates with its own kind and cries noisily. Old wall paintings depict it living with people in ancient times.

Major appearances

Baltoy first appeared in Me, Myself and Time, under the ownership of a girl named Calista.

In It's Still Rocket Roll to Me!, Tate and Liza were using Baltoy's Confusion to recreate weightlessness during a Pokémon Battle, even though their main Pokémon already possess the ability to float in mid-air. Later in that same episode, these Clay Doll Pokémon stopped Team Rocket from stealing the rocket ship.

Another Baltoy appeared in Bucking the Treasure Trend!, under the ownership of Buck.

Minor appearances

A Baltoy is owned by one of the students of Snowpoint Trainers' School in Classroom Training!

Trivia

Origin

Baltoy is based on a top with the design of a 遮光器土偶 Shakōki-dogū—a "spaceman" clay figurine from the Jōmon period of Japanese history. It also seems to resemble Hopi Kachina figures.

Name origin

Baltoy may be a combination of balance and toy.

Yajilon is an abbreviation of 弥次郎兵衛 yajirobe'e (balancing toy).
