Fuecoco (Japanese: ホゲータ Hogator) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IX.

It evolves into Crocalor starting at level 16, which evolves into Skeledirge starting at level 36.

Along with Sprigatito and Quaxly, Fuecoco is one of the three first partner Pokémon of Paldea available at the beginning of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. They were also the first Generation IX Pokémon to be revealed to the public on February 27, 2022, through a Pokémon Presents video presentation.

Biology

 
Fuecoco emitting light from the tufts on its head

Fuecoco is a bipedal crocodilian Pokémon with a mostly red body and a white stomach and face. Its body contains a small flame sac, which constantly leaks fire energy due to its size. The energy releases in the form of two bright yellow tufts of flame on top of its head; should Fuecoco get excited, more of these tufts of flame may emerge.[1] As shown in the anime, Fuecoco's tufts can emit light. Fuecoco has black eyes and triangular nostrils, and its mouth has three teeth, with one in the upper jaw and two in the lower jaw. It has stubby arms and large feet with two black toes on each foot. Fuecoco has yellow square scales on its stomach, back, tail, and the soles of its feet. These scales are warm to the touch, although they can become heated. The scales absorb external heat, such as from warm rocks where it lies on, to be turned into fire energy.[1]

Fuecoco is laid-back and does things at its own pace. It enjoys eating, and it will rush towards any food it sees.[1]

Evolution

Fuecoco evolves into Crocalor, which evolves into Skeledirge.

Scarlet It lies on warm rocks and uses the heat absorbed by its square-shaped scales to create fire energy.
Violet Its flame sac is small, so energy is always leaking out. This energy is released from the dent atop Fuecoco's head and flickers to and fro.

Trivia

Origin

Fuecoco appears to be based on a baby crocodile, although it has some similarities to theropod dinosaurs and crocodile toys. The fiery tufts on its head, its coloration, and its overall body shape together make it resemble a chili pepper, like the ghost pepper. Given its final evolution, the light color of its face and snout might be inspired by a calavera design, commonly found in the celebration of the Day of the Dead. Its Fire typing may be inspired by the fact that crocodiles release excess heat through their mouths.

Name origin

Fuecoco may be a combination of fuego (Spanish for fire) and cocodrilo (Spanish for crocodile). It may also come from fuocoso (Italian for fiery, especially relating to music).

Hogator may be a combination of 火 ho (fire), ほげー hogē (onomatopoeia for being dumbfounded), fogata (Spanish for campfire) or hoguera (Spanish for bonfire), and gator. It may also involve malagueta (type of chili pepper) or melegueta (grains of paradise; a spice).
