Drapion (Japanese: ドラピオン Dorapion) is a dual-type Poison/Dark Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves from Skorupi starting at level 40.

Biology

Drapion is a large, purple, scorpion-like Pokémon. Its eyes are a pointed shape, with blue-colored upper portions. Drapion has two small, pointed protrusions between its eyes, and one on the back of its head. Drapion also has protrusions on its jaws, two on the upper and three on the lower, with large, fang-like, white-colored features extending from its mouth. Its body is composed of many violet-to-lavender body segments which ends with a tail with two stingers. Drapion has four segmented legs with pointed toes. Its most distinguishing feature is its huge claws. It can turn its head 180 degrees.

Drapion is a very aggressive Pokémon, attacking anything that enters its territory. It has a sturdy build and takes pride in its strength, being able to take down foes even without the use of its deadly toxin. It has enough power to easily scrap a car. Drapion has very hard, armor-like skin. Due to its vicious nature, it's known as the Sand Demon, but is known to avoid fights with Hippowdon.

Trivia

Origin

Drapion is likely based on a scorpion, and has some characteristics that resemble a vinegarroon (a similar arachnid). Its Water 3 Egg Group designation may be a reference to the ancient group of arthropods known as sea scorpions that used to inhabit the oceans and may have been the ancestors of modern scorpions.

Name origin

Drapion and Dorapion may be a combination of dragon, drastic (referring to its violent nature), or Dracula (referring to its huge vampire-looking teeth) and scorpion.
