Klinklang (Japanese: ギギギアル Gigigiaru) is a Steel-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves from Klang starting at level 49. It is the final form of Klink.

Contents

Biology

Klinklang resembles four interlocking gears, with six teeth on the smaller two gears and eight teeth on the larger gear. The fourth gear is on its lower side, and is red-topped with a thin, spiked rim below it. The red core is used to store energy gained from the rotating gears. This energy can be released through the spiked gear at the bottom. The teeth of the smaller gears are a light gray, while their central regions are much darker. The teeth of the larger gear are a medium gray and its central region is darker. The left eye of the smaller gear is a white "X", while its right eye has a black pupil and a white sclera. It has a round green nose and a small mouth. The largest gear appears to have a face with a black square for its left eye, a black circle for its right eye, and a sharply angled white frown. Dialogue between the two faced gears in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series suggests that both gears are independently sentient from one another.[1] Klinklang can fire tiny gears at high speeds in the form of Gear Grind and Shift Gear, its signature moves.

Major appearances

Klinklang debuted in White—Victini and Zekrom and Black—Victini and Reshiram alongside Klink and Klang; they are all under the ownership of Mannes. He used the three for various tasks, such as powering the music machine at Eindoak Town's Harvest Festival, doing yard work on his property, and powering his helicopter in the climax of the films.

Klinklang made its main series debut in Evolution Exchange Excitement!. It appeared in Chargestone Cave, where it had a pen that was left behind by Cedric Juniper stuck in its gears. The same Klinklang later appeared in a flashback in Battling the Bully!, when it was revealed that the Sunglasses Krokorok threw the pen into its gears by accident.

Minor appearances

A Klinklang appeared in a flashback in Explorers of the Hero's Ruin!.

Two Klinklang made a brief cameo in Team Eevee and the Pokémon Rescue Squad!, where they were used by Virgil's family to power two separate helicopters. One of them reappeared in Curtain Up, Unova League! and Mewtwo — Prologue to Awakening.

A Klinklang briefly appeared on a television monitor in Genesect and the Legend Awakened.

Trophy information

NA: This Pokémon evolves in the following order: Klink, Klang, and finally Klinklang. I wonder what it would be called if it evolved again... Klinklangklung? The noise from that Pokémon would be unbearable! Anyway, Klinklang's small, red center gear will spin at high speeds when it's charging up energy.

PAL: From Kling to Klang to Klinklang, this Pokémon gets noisier with each evolution! It has a nice ring to it, though. Maybe all Pokémon should be named this way! Abra, Kadabra, Abrakadabra? Gible, Gabite...Gigabite? Err...Moving on! When it charges up energy, Klinklang spins the small cog with the red core at very high speeds.

Trivia

Origin

Klinklang is based on interlocking gears, more specifically a combination of sun and planet gears, a bevel gear, and an external gear. The Klink line's Shiny coloration may have been based on copper gears, as their noses have turned green as copper does when it oxidizes into such compounds as copper carbonate, forming a patina.

Name origin

Klinklang is a combination of Klink and Klang, making it also a combination of clink and clang (onomatopoeia for metal striking a surface). It may also involve link, possibly referring to how the four gears are connected.

Gigigiaru is derived from gear, with gi repeated twice to denote the addition of Klang's fourth gear.
