Croagunk (グレッグル) is the 129th Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex. It is a Poison/Fighting Type, and is known as the Toxic Mouth Pokémon.

Croagunk can use one of two Abilities: Anticipation, which makes it alert to the opponent knowing either a move that is Super Effective against it or knows a One-Hit KO move; or Dry Skin, which restores HP when it gets hit by a Water-Type move or during the rain, but causes a vulnerability to Fire-Type moves and it loses HP during periods of strong sunlight. A third Ability is available to Croagunk from the Dream World, the Poison Touch Ability. This Ability affects Croagunk's moves that require physical contact, adding a 20% chance of inflicting poison

Croagunk gain the opportunity to evolve into Toxicroak starting at Level 37.

Croagunk is in the Human-Like Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 2,560 Steps to hatch. It takes Croagunk One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.
