Maractus (マラカッチ) is the 62nd Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex. It is a Grass-Type, and it is known as the Cactus Pokémon.

Maractus can have one of two Abilities: Water Absorb, which restores up to a quarter of its Maximum HP when it gets hit by a move of the Water Type; or Chlorophyll, which doubles its Speed during periods of strong sunlight. A third Ability is available to Maractus from the Dream World, the Storm Drain Ability. This Ability will draw Water-Type moves to it, nullifying the move and increasing its Special Attack by one stage.

Maractus doesn't evolve and doesn't have a pre-evolved form.

Maractus is in the Grass Egg Group, and it will take approximately 5,120 Steps for its Egg to hatch. It takes Maractus One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Maractus is listed in the Never-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling because the other Grass-Types can do what it does better. There is one thing Maractus can do that other Grass-Types can't: it can use the Chlorophyll Ability in tandem with Spikes. Outside of that, it's low defenses and shallow movepool keep it from being a viable threat to too many Pokémon that aren't weak to Grass-Type moves.
