Rokkuki is a Grass-type Pokémon. Due to its ability, Statue Mode, when it uses a Rock-type move, it goes into Statue Mode and gains the Rock-type. When it uses a Grass-type move, it turns back into Normal Mode and gains the Grass-type once more. It always begins a battle in Normal Mode and does not appear in Statue Mode outside of battle. Each form has a different stat distribution.

In the wild, it has a 50% chance of holding an Iapapa Berry.

Dex info

  • Rokkuki dwells in forests, where it roams as it pleases. It changes its cells to a stone-like form and shapeshifts to trick passersby.
  • Rokkuki uses a hollowed-out Iapapa Berry as a water flask. It is surprisingly agile for its weight, except when it's disguised as a statue.

Origin

  • Rokkuki is based on the tanuki or Japanese raccoon dog, particularly the legendary yōkai known as the bake-danuki, a strange creature known for its shapeshifting. These tanuki are often depicted in statues with various traits, such as a big belly, a welcoming smile and a bottle of sake, which is represented in Rokkuki by its Iapapa Berry flask. The tanuki are normally given 8 traits - 8 being a lucky number in Asian cultures. Because of this, several of Rokkuki's attributes such as its metric weight, HP stat and number within the PokeJAM! dex contain the number 8. Additionally, other Nintendo games such as Super Mario Bros. 3 depict tanuki-affiliated characters being able to turn into a statue. It can also learn HM02 Fly, just as Mario can fly with the Super Leaf and Tanooki Suit power-ups.
  • Its name is a corruption of rock and tanuki.
