Sutikkun (Japanese: スティックン Sutikkun) is a Thwackey that Sōdo Tsurugi owns in Pokémon Adventures and his second overall.



As a Grookey

Prior to the start of the Sword & Shield chapter, Sōdo received Grookey from Professor Magnolia.

Sutikkun first appeared in PASS01 as a Grookey, where he got his stick repaired by Sōdo. Later that day, he was used in a mock Max Raid Battle to help teach Marvin about battling. Grookey attacked a holographic Dynamaxed Pangoro with Leafage alongside Shirudomiria's Scorbunny's Ember. This showed Marvin how to look for openings in battles.

In PASS03, while traveling, the group's truck accidentally run over a group of Drednaw, resulting in a flat tire. While trying to find the cause of it, the Drednaw attacked. Scorbunny was able to distract two of them, though one chomped down on Grookey's stick. Grookey refused to let go, resulting in a tug of war. Grookey eventually won when another Drednaw charged into the one holding Grookey's stick, allowing the Chimp Pokémon to knock them both out.

In PASS04, Sōdo decided to give his team nicknames in order to distinguish them from other Pokémon of the same species. Choosing to name them after the gear they used, Grookey was called Sutikkun. Later during the day, a pair of Team Yell Grunts tried to destroy the new uniforms that Sōdo and Shirudomiria received. While Ransun and Scorbunny distracted them, Sutikkun snuck behind the fight and directly attacked the Grunts, driving them towards a Pokémon Den. This allowed his Trainer to push the Grunts into it and force them into a Max Raid Battle against a wild Gurdurr.

Sutikkun Dynamaxed

In PASS08, to prepare for his gym battle against Nessa, Sōdo used Sutikkun to battle against Marvin and Namida-kun, where they practiced Sutikkun's strategy of drumming its stick off the ground to agitate his opponent. Namida-kun responding by using its tears to become invisible, though Sutikkun countered it with a Branch Poke and won. After the battle, Sutikkun evolved into Thwackey. Sōdo later used Sutikkun as his first Pokémon against Nessa and her Toxapex. Sutikkun started the battle by drumming his branches on the ground but quickly became frustrated when Toxapex was unaffected by the noise. Sutikkun then attacked the Brutal Star Pokémon directly and was poisoned by Toxapex's Baneful Bunker. Realizing that temperature had something to do with how Toxapex protected itself, Sōdo had Sutikkun use Sunny Day, opening up Toxapex and allowing Sutikkun to defeat the Brutal Star Pokémon. Nessa then sent out her Drednaw, which she immediately Gigantamaxed.

Due to its large size, Gigantamax Drednaw easily overwhelmed Sutikkun with its Max Moves. Soudo countered by Dynamaxing Sutikkun, determined to win the fight with only him. The two exchanged a few blows, though Sutikkun's speed wasn't enough to match the Bite Pokémon's defense. He finally managed to land the finishing blow when Drednaw extended its neck out to bite Sutikkun, earning them the victory.

Personality and characteristics

Sutikkun and Sōdo

Sutikkun is an upbeat Pokémon, often seen smiling and excited at the idea of battling. He is very protective of his stick, refusing to give it up even in the face of danger. Using its sticks, Sutikkun is able to beat them off the ground to create a rhythmic drumming that can agitate opponents. After evolving into a Thwackey, Sutikkun is shown to get irritated when things don't go his way.
