Greedent (Japanese: ヨクバリス Yokubarisu) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII.

It evolves from Skwovet starting at level 24.

Biology

Greedent is a bipedal, squirrel-like Pokémon with a tan and brown plump body, a buck tooth, yellow nose, stumpy limbs, and a huge tail larger than its body. It has a darker brown area on its cheeks that can also be found on its chest, the underside of its tail, and the tips of its ears. Its fur is fluffy and messy. It also has yellow freckles on its big cheeks and yellow inside of its ears. Its eyes are a black oval-shape with white pupils, with a ring of light brown fur surrounding them.

True to their name, Greedent are extremely greedy and gluttonous. Greedent stuff their tails with so many Berries, that these Berries fall out constantly, especially when it is hit or faints. Dimwitted, Greedent will not often notice the loss of their food they store. Its sharp teeth are strong enough to gnaw through the strongest of Berry shells.

Greedent and its pre-evolved form Skwovet are the only known Pokémon capable of using the move Stuff Cheeks.

Trivia

  • When Greedent is damaged in the games, a Leppa Berry falls out of its tail.

Origin

Greedent may be based on the Eurasian red squirrel, a species of squirrel that is endangered in Great Britain. Their dimwitted nature compared to Skwovet mirrors the fact that grey squirrels are more intelligent than red squirrels in real life.

Name origin

Greedent may be a combination of greed and rodent.

Yokubarisu may be a combination of 欲張り yokubari (greed) and 栗鼠 risu (squirrel).
