Lickitung () is the 108th Pokémon in the Pokédex. It is a Normal-Type, and is known as the Licking Pokémon.
Lickitung can use one of two Abilities: Own Tempo, which gives it an immunity to becoming Confused; or Oblivious, which gives it an immunity to becoming infatuated with an opposing Pokémon. A third Ability is available to Lickitung from the Dream World, the Cloud Nine Ability. This Ability negates the effects of any and all weather effects that would otherwise be in effect while its user remains in battle.
Lickitung is in the Monster Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Lickitung One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.
Licktung takes on the appearance of a pink bipedal Pokémon whose tail is thick and powerful. Its other notable feature is its very long tongue, which also has a high level of dexterity.
 Gender Differences
Lickitung doesn't have any differences to differentiate between male and female.

 Anime/Manga Information
Jessie would capture a Lickitung that had consumed her shopping purchases in the episode Princess Versus Princess, and Jessie's Lickitung almost won the competition against Misty, defeating Ash's Pikachu & Bulbasaur, along with Brock's Vulpix. But instead of getting to use Staryu, her Psyduck let itself out of its Poké Ball. Misty's Psyduck would defeat Lickitung and win the competition.
Lickitung's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.
 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Lickitung finds itself in the Not Fully Evolved Tier of Competitive Battling, but it is one of the bulkiest Pokémon in the tier. Despite this, its typing is more or less an Achilles' heel because the NFE Tier is a tier in which Fighting-Type Pokémon are very numerous.
