Arctozolt (Japanese: パッチルドン Patchilldon) is a dual-type Electric/Ice Fossil Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII.

It is resurrected from combining a Fossilized Bird and Fossilized Dino, and it is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, but it appears to be related to Dracozolt and Arctovish.

Biology

Arctozolt is a hybrid fossil Pokémon. It has a light-blue body with a snow-like patch on the top. Its body has blue fins with white patches on the ends and some spots. It has a plesiosaur-like tail with a fin on top. It has two yellow hands. Arctozolt has a paravian-like head with closed eyes and a blue spot on each cheek. It produces mucus from its nose.

By shaking its freezing upper half, Arctozolt can generate electricity. It was known to live on ancient shores and preserved its food with the ice on its body. It allegedly went extinct because it moved very slowly, but this is likely not the case due to Arctozolt being combined from two separate Pokémon that each had their niches before going extinct.

Trivia

Origin

Arctozolt, like its counterparts, may be based on the concept of chimera in paleontology, which refers to fossils reconstructed from multiple different species or genus of animals, resulting in an inaccurate and mistaken understanding of the animals's biology. In the case of Arctozolt, its top half appears to be based on a dromaeosaurid, while its bottom half appears to be based on a marine reptile, like a plesiosaur, mosasaur or ichthyosaur. Arctozolt and its counterparts may also reference the Crystal Palace Dinosaurs, a series of scientifically inaccurate dinosaur sculptures displayed at the Crystal Palace Park. Arctozolt may particularly reference the Ichthyosaurus statue included in the series. The mucus it possesses is probably inspired by the fact that cold weather often results in a runny nose.

The Pokédex entries for all the Galarian fossil Pokémon mention them being the cause of their extinction, which may be a reference to the outdated hypothesis that the dinosaurs were evolutionarily inert, which made them get bigger, stupider, and more sluggish, to the point they couldn't sustain themselves.

Arctozolt being unable to breed could be a reference to cross-bred animals, which are born infertile (unable to produce offspring).

Name origin

Arctozolt may be a combination of arctic and volt or jolt.

Patchilldon may be a combination of パチパチ pachipachi (onomatopoeia for crackling), chill, and -don (common suffix in dinosaur names derived from the Ancient Greek word for tooth).
