Togedemaru (Japanese: トゲデマル Togedemaru) is a dual-type Electric/Steel Pokémon introduced in Generation VII.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Togedemaru is a spherical, rodent-like Pokémon. Most of its front is white, while its back is primarily gray. It has black eyes, a short pointed snout with a black nose, rounded ears, and a circular, yellow marking on each cheek. Scattered across its back are 14 fur spikes that appear as yellow and brown triangular markings. When attacking, surprised, or agitated these spikes will stand straight up. There is a tail-like needle on the back of its head. The needle is gray with a yellow tip and is shaped like a lightning bolt. Additionally, it has stubby arms and legs.

Togedemaru uses the needle on top of its head to attract and gather electricity. Groups can be seen gathered with their needles standing upright, waiting to be struck by lightning on stormy days to make up for its somewhat limited electric capacity. Some Trainers use its ability to absorb electricity as a strategy in battle. The opponent is coaxed into unleashing an Electric-type attack, and then has that power turned against it.[1] When it is pleased, this Pokémon will curl into a ball and roll around uncontrollably. Togedemaru clashes with Elekid whenever it tries to steal the latter's electricity, usually ending with even matches. In the past, Zing Zap was its signature move.

Sun The spiny fur on its back is normally at rest. When this Pokémon becomes agitated, its fur stands on end and stabs into its attackers.
Moon The long hairs on its back act as lightning rods. The bolts of lightning it attracts are stored as energy in its electric sac.
Ultra Sun When it's surprised or agitated, the 14 fur spikes on its back will stand up involuntarily.
Ultra Moon Its capacity to produce electricity is somewhat limited, so it gets charged up by letting lightning strike it!

Sword With the long hairs on its back, this Pokémon takes in electricity from other electric Pokémon. It stores what it absorbs in an electric sac.

Trivia

Origin

Togedemaru may be based on a New World porcupine, given how it can stiffen its triangular body spines. It could also be based on a hedgehog, a chinchilla, or a Ryukyu spiny rat (トゲネズミ togenezumi in Japanese).

Name origin

Togedemaru may be a combination of 棘 toge (thorn or spine), 電気 denki (electricity), and 丸 maru (round). It literally means "thorned and round" (棘で丸 toge de maru).
