Klang (Japanese: ギギアル Gigiaru) is a Steel-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves from Klink starting at level 38 and evolves into Klinklang starting at level 49.

Biology

Klang is a Pokémon resembling three interlocking gears, with six teeth on the smaller two gears and eight teeth on the larger gear. The teeth of the smaller gears are a light gray, while their central regions are much darker. The teeth of the larger gear are a medium gray and its central region is darker. The left eye of the smaller gear is a white "X", while its right eye has a black pupil and a white sclera. It has a round green nose and a small mouth that is wide open. The large gear appears to have a face with a black square for its right eye, a black circle for its left eye, and a sharply angled white frown.

Klang can fire tiny gears at high speeds in the form of Gear Grind and Shift Gear, its current and former signature moves, respectively. When it gets angry, its gears rotate faster. Klang communicate with each other by spinning their gears in different directions. Klang is often chosen as a logo for many companies in Galar. Klang is believed to be the symbol of industrial technology.

Trivia

Origin

Klang is based on interlocking gears, more specifically the sun and planet gears. The Klink line's Shiny coloration may have been based on copper gears, as their noses have turned green as copper does when it oxidizes into such compounds as copper carbonate, forming a patina.

Name origin

Klang is a corruption of clang (onomatopoeia for heavy metal striking a surface).

Gigiaru is derived from gear, with gi repeated once to denote the addition of Klang's third gear.
