Kricketot (Japanese: コロボーシ Korobohshi) is a Bug-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves into Kricketune starting at level 10.

Contents

Biology

Kricketot is a bipedal, bug-like Pokémon. The majority of its body is red with a streak down its front and black cape-like marking on its back. Its head is encircled with a flat, white structure similar to a collar. A female has a bigger collar than a male. Two hard, black antennae with curled tips are connected to the head by a dark red segment. A similar dark red segment forms this Pokémon's nose, and it has small, black hands and feet. By shaking its head and rubbing its antennae together, it is able to create a xylophonic sound that it uses to communicate.

Trivia

Origin

Kricketot is based on a cricket, who are known widely for their loud chirping songs used to attract females. It also bears the semblance of a real musician; possibly a music conductor or member of an orchestra. Its body works as a living musical instrument; its abdomen resembles one of many stringed instruments, such as a violin or lyre, and the Pokédex explains that Kricketot often topples over, causing its antennae to clack together and make a sound similar to a xylophone.

Name origin

Kricketot is a combination of cricket, and possibly tot, derived from toddler, meaning a young child who has just begun learning to walk, and totter, referring to its tendency to fall over and stumble.

Korobohshi may be derived from kuroboshi tsutsuhamushi (the black-spotted leaf beetle) or a combination of 蟋蟀 koorogi (cricket) and 黒星 kuroboshi (black-spot).
