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.

In Heart Gold and Soul Silver, Croagunk can be found at the Safari Zone's Marshland area after placing 21 Forest Objects in the area, then waiting 20 days. Croagunk can also be found on the Rally Pokéwalker course, which can only be unlocked by way of an Event.
