Eiscue (Japanese: コオリッポ Korippo) is an Ice-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII.

While it is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, Eiscue can change forms with its Ice Face Ability.

Biology

Eiscue is a medium-sized, penguin-like Pokémon with a large ice cube on its head. This ice cube is a light blue, with specks of white seen dotting the surface of it. Two oval-shaped eyes and a beak are seen on the front of the cube. It also has a long, antennae-like hair sticking out of the cube. Eiscue's body is black and white with light blue accents around its belly. It has two flippers and yellow feet, with three toes on each. Its true face within the ice is colored light blue with two white eyes, black eyebrows and a white beak.

Eiscue comes from extremely cold areas. It can produce cold air from inside its head to create ice to protect its head from heat. The ice, however, is not very durable, as a strong blow can shatter it, after which it goes on to create new ice. Eiscue are easygoing and are often seen aimlessly floating in the ocean with just its ice-covered head floating on the surface, occasionally washing up on distant shores. It never panics or gets upset whenever it ends up in a new land, instead continuing due to its ability to adapt.[1] People love the silly, worried expression Eiscue shows when the ice on its head shatters. Eiscue's hair is connected to the surface of its brain, which then chills the air around it when it has something on its mind. Eiscue also uses its hair to catch prey in the sea, by dipping it into the water like a fishing line.

Trivia

  • Eiscue shares its category with Piplup and Prinplup. They are all known as the Penguin Pokémon.
  • Eiscue can be seen as a parallel to Stonjourner, the former being exclusive to Shield while the latter is exclusive to Sword. Melony and Gordie, the version exclusive Gym Leaders of the Circhester Gym use the two in their teams. (Eiscue with Melony and Stonjourner with Gordie.)
  • Due to a glitch, if Eiscue is hit by Rollout, the damage multiplier for it can also be applied to other moves. Eiscue shares this trait with Mimikyu.

Origin

Eiscue seems to be based on a penguin with an ice cube for a head. It may also draw inspiration from the great auk, a flightless bird that used to inhabit the British Islands before their extinction. Many of Eiscue's behaviors are similar to the biology and history of the great auk: they float with their heads exposed above water, their heads would get whiter during the winter season, and they were hunted to be used as fish bait.

Name origin

Eiscue may be derived from Eis (German for ice or ice cream) and a corruption of ice cube.

Korippo may be a combination of 氷 kōri (ice) and 立方 rippō (cube).
