Lechonk (Japanese: グルトン Gourton) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IX.

It evolves into Oinkologne starting at level 18.

Biology

Lechonk is a stout Pokémon resembling a hog. Its body is almost entirely grayish black, except for the brown colorations on its face and ears, and the yellow growths under its eyes that resemble teardrops. Its ears are droopy with yellow insides, and they partially cover its eyes. It has a triangular pink snout with two huge oval nostrils as well as stubby feet ending in pink hooves. Its tail is short and curled.

Lechonk has an excellent sense of smell, which it uses to find fragrant wild grasses and rich Berries to eat. This diet causes it to emanate a herbal body odor that repels bug Pokémon.[1] Lechonk is also known to feed on the sweet nectar on Appletun's back. Lechonk has a timid and faint-hearted temperament, and will panic and charge forward if attacked or startled by an opponent. Despite its apparent bulk, Lechonk's body mainly consists not of fat but of muscle, built up by its habit of walking around to find food.[1] Some Trainers use Lechonk to look for cooking ingredients, such as detached Crabominable pincers scattered on mountains. As seen in the anime, Lechonk will become hostile towards trainers carrying groceries or meals and attack them for their food.

Evolution

Lechonk evolves into Oinkologne.

Trivia

  • Lechonk is the only Pokémon with a base stat total of 254.
  • Lechonk was the subject of The Pokémon Company's April Fools' Day 2023 campaign, titled "Discover Pokémon Together: Lechonk". Various Lechonk-themed distributions, promotions, and merchandises were released.[2]

Origin

Lechonk appears to be based on a pig, specifically a juvenile black Iberian pig, with which it shares its large appetite and diet of fruit and nuts that owes it its rotund shape. Its description as a "gourmand" that sniffs out only the most fragrant foods[1] may pull from truffle hogs, domestic pigs used to locate truffles, a valuable foodstuff used in gourmet dishes. The brown color of its face gives the impression that it is covered in mud, a characteristic often associated with pigs.

Name origin

Lechonk may be a combination of lechón (Spanish for suckling piglet), oink (onomatopoeia for a sound pigs make), and possibly chonk (slang term for a fat or large animal).

Gourton may be a combination of gourmet, glutton, and 豚 ton (pig).
