History

 
Croagunk and Looker

Diamond & Pearl chapter

Croagunk first appeared in Double Trouble with Dialga and Palkia V alongside its Trainer, Looker. The two interrogated two scientists who were hired by Team Galactic to guard Lake Valor, trying to find information about the location of Team Galactic members who had disappeared from Veilstone City. Gaining no information from the two scientists, Looker decided to leave, placing Croagunk in charge of guarding the police station.

Platinum chapter

Croagunk appeared again at the end of the Platinum chapter, helping Looker arrest Charon. Croagunk helped its Trainer chase after the other Team Galactic commanders until Looker's superior contacted him and told him to call the mission off. Looker was ordered to head to Unova and investigate the activities of the Seven Sages. Looker and Croagunk then quickly head to Unova.

Black & White chapter

In Into the Quarterfinals!, Looker appeared as a participant in the Pokémon League, disguised as a man named Lou Karr. Looker used Croagunk as his first Pokémon in a 3-on-3 battle against Black's Tula in the quarterfinals. Due to Croagunk not being native to the Unova region, many of the spectators were unaware of what type of Pokémon Croagunk was. Croagunk started the match by striking Tula in the face, which caused Black to realize that Croagunk must be a Fighting-type. Noticing that Croagunk would prefer a hand-to-hand battle, Black had Tula cover himself in an Electroweb to keep the Toxic Mouth Pokémon at bay. Tula then fired a Signal Beam, having little effect. Croagunk followed up by throwing needles from its mouth at Tula, trapping and poisoning the EleSpider Pokémon. Looker then had Croagunk attack with a powerful Vacuum Wave, blowing away Tula's Electroweb. With Tula's defense gone, Croagunk went on the assault, pummeling Tula with a variety of punches. Running out of time, Black noticed the Electroweb still in the air and had Tula fire a web at it and pull it down on top of Croagunk. The Electroweb did massive damage to Croagunk, knocking it out and eliminating Looker from the tournament.

With their defeat the two immediately disappeared into the stands and began to look for one of the Seven Sages. The two reviewed their data of those participating in the League and find Zinzolin to be the most suspicious. During the final match in the League, Looker discovered Gray is a member of Team Plasma and had Croagunk quickly arrest him using the International Police Arm #10, Super Hard Tight Tape. After Team Plasma's arrival, Croagunk helped support Black by attacking N's Zekrom alongside Cedric's Samurott and Leo's Deino. Despite their combined efforts Zekrom easily pushed them aside.

Black 2 & White 2 chapter

After the battle against Team Plasma Looker and Croagunk spent the next two years looking around the world for the Seven Sages. Having no success, the two return to Unova to continue their search and meet with Blake.

In Mr. Perfect, Blake had Croagunk test its skill in simulated training. Blake started Croagunk with just targets, where the Toxic Mouth Pokémon was able to hit all of the targets weak points. Blake then had Croagunk try while sand and fire flew around it, where it missed every shot. Immediately following the training, Team Plasma's Genesect began attacking Aspertia City. While Blake and his Dewott attacked the Paleozoic Pokémon, Looker and Croagunk went to secure the area.

In New Sword Player, after Blake defeated Team Plasma's Tornadus, Looker and Croagunk arrested Giallo.

In Angry Boy, Looker used Croagunk to contact Hugh and attempted to have him explain his connection to Team Plasma, but Hugh refused and ran away.

In PS548, Croagunk assisted in defeating Ghetsis's Pokémon on the Plasma Frigate. Soon after the ship began to crash and Looker, getting a call from headquarters, failed to get onto Reshiram to escape. Right as they were about to crash, Croagunk pushed Looker into Brav, who carried the two to safety.
