Walking Wake (Japanese: ウネルミナモ Uneruminamo) is a dual-type Water/Dragon Paradox Pokémon introduced in Generation IX.

It was revealed alongside Iron Leaves during the Pokémon Presents that aired on February 27, 2023 and debuted that same day in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet's Version 1.2.0 update.

While not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, it is said to be an ancestor of the Legendary Pokémon Suicune from the ancient past[1] or a version of it from a different timeline[2].

Biology

Walking Wake is a large, bipedal, theropod dinosaur Pokémon with white, diamond-shaped markings. It has a long, white snout with one horn underneath the chin. The horizontal eyes are red, with yellow sclerae with red skin surrounding them. Its face and underside are also white as well. It has a thick, large purple mane covering its arms and back. The mane resembles the aurora borealis with six tips of spiky hair being red and orange. It has two small light blue forelimbs, with three white-clawed digits each, and one diamond marking. Walking Wake has two powerful light blue hind legs with six feathers, and three white claws each. It has a large, hexagonal, cerulean blue crest on its forehead with two bent prongs on either side of the base. It has a blue horn between the snout and crest. It has two long, white tails with seven small spikes each. The tails also have eight blue spikes marking on the tops of two tails each.

Walking Wake resembles a sketch made by a member of the Area Zero Expedition in the Scarlet Book. Its name originated from an aquatic monster mentioned in the Scarlet Book. It bears a uniquely shaped set of horns on its forehead. It also supports its weight with just its hind legs and walks bipedally.[3] Walking Wake is capable of walking on water. According to an illustration in the Occulture, Walking Wake is believed to be a super-ancient Suicune from the past.

According to AI Sada, Walking Wake is an ancient Pokémon related to Suicune. However, according to a Sada brought to the Crystal Pool by Terapagos, Walking Wake is a counterpart of Suicune from another timeline. Its true origin is unknown. Walking Wake were brought to the depths of Area Zero by a time machine built by Professor Sada ten years ago.

Walking Wake is the only known Pokémon capable of learning the move Hydro Steam.

Trivia

 
Sketch resembling Walking Wake in the Scarlet Book

Origin

Walking Wake is based on Suicune. Its bipedal reptilian appearance may be based on theropod dinosaurs or the basilisk lizard — the latter also has the ability to run on water. It may also be based on the Qilin, which appears to be one of Suicune's original inspirations.

Being more specific on Walking Wake's theropod features and resemblance to Suicune, it could be based on the Coelophysis genus, one of the earliest known theropods, and also called to a lesser degree Rioarribasaurus, from Río arriba (upriver in Spanish). Coelophysis lived in the Triassic period, characterized by a dry and hot climate, although with frequent flash floods in the areas with more rainfall. In fact, the Ghost Ranch site contained a group of Coelophysis presumably buried together due to one of these floods. These facts could contribute to Walking Wake's resemblance with Suicune, a Pokémon associated with water bodies. Walking Wake's signature move becoming stronger in sunlight despite being a Water-type move could come from the aforementioned dry climate of the Triassic.

Name origin

Walking Wake is literally walking wake. A wake is a movement of water created by a moving object.

Uneruminamo can be taken literally as うねる水面 uneru minamo (undulating water's surface).
