Cramorant (Japanese: ウッウ Uu) is a dual-type Flying/Water Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII.

While it is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, Cramorant can change forms with its Gulp Missile Ability.

Biology

Cramorant is a blue avian Pokémon resembling a cormorant. It has bright green, large, circular eyes with small pupils and a large, thin yellow beak. It has a ruff of light gray feathers that goes around its torso and sticks out at the back, making them resemble a bib. Its tail feathers have a small dot-shaped marking of this same shade of gray. It has a ruff of feathers on its head, with the largest clump pointing backward and being surrounded by small singular feathers. Its feet are black, webbed, and have three toes. Its wings seem to be perpetually extended.

Cramorant is a gluttonous Pokémon that can swallow other Pokémon whole. Its preferred prey are Arrokuda, but sometimes it swallows other Pokémon such as Pikachu, attempting to spit them out if they realize their mistake. Cramorant are quite strong, to the point where they can knock some opponents out in one hit. They are rather unintelligent as they can't remember which Pokémon they fight in mid-battle, but never forget Trainers that they trust. However, they will try to attack their Trainers if they steal food from them.[1]

Shield This hungry Pokémon swallows Arrokuda whole. Occasionally, it makes a mistake and tries to swallow a Pokémon other than its preferred prey.
Gulping Form
Sword Cramorant's gluttony led it to try to swallow an Arrokuda whole, which in turn led to Cramorant getting an Arrokuda stuck in its throat.
Shield The slightest shock is sometimes enough to get this Pokémon to spit out the Arrokuda lodged in its throat.
Gorging Form
Sword This Cramorant has accidentally gotten a Pikachu lodged in its gullet. Cramorant is choking a little, but it isn't really bothered.
Shield The half-swallowed Pikachu is so startled that it isn't struggling yet, but it's still looking for a chance to strike back.

Trivia

  • Cramorant's Japanese name, ウッウ Uu, is a palindrome.
  • In the games, there is no chance for Cramorant to catch a female Pikachu, nor a Shiny Arrokuda or Pikachu.

Origin

Cramorant may be based on two common seabirds present in the British Isles, the cormorant and the fulmar, a bird that uses defensive vomiting to turn away predators; inspiration from the latter may also justify its primary Flying type, as like most petrels, fulmars spend most of their lives on the wing. Its Gulp Missile Ability may also draw inspiration from cormorant fishing, an ancient fishing technique that consists of using trained cormorants to fish and forcing the bird to spit the fish up. Cormorants also frequently hold their wings outstretched, as Cramorant does, to dry their feathers after a dive. The plumage on its neck may be inspired by bibs.

Cramorant's Shiny coloration may be inspired by multiple news stories from the UK, involving seagulls having turned orange due to accidentally falling into curry sauce.[2][3][4]

Name origin

Cramorant may be a combination of cram and cormorant.

Uu may be a combination of ウッ u~ (sound of choking or gasping) and 鵜 u (cormorant).
