Toxicroak (ドクロッグ)is the 130th Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex. it is a Poison/Fighting Type, and is known as the Toxic Mouth Pokémon.

Toxicroak can use one of two Abilities: Anticipation, which alerts it to an opponent knowing either a move that is Super Effective against it or a One-Hit KO move; or Dry Skin, which reduces HP during periods of strong sunlight and gives it an increased weakness to Fire-Type moves, but also nullifies Water-Type moves, restoring HP if it gets hit by a Water-Type move or while it is raining. A third Ability is available to Toxicroak from the Dream World, the Poison Touch Ability. With this Ability, any of the moves that Toxicroak uses that require physical contact against its opponents also have a 20% chance of Poisoning that opponent.

Croagunk can evolve into Toxicroak at Level 37.

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


[edit] Biology

[edit] Physiology

Toxicroak takes on the appearance of a purple poison dart frog, albeit more human-like than its previous form. Its hands have a single red claw on each hand, and under its chin is a vocal sack that is a common trait amongst frogs and toads alike, but Toxicroak's vocal sack is red in color.

[edit] Gender Differences

A Male Toxicroak has a larger vocal sack than a Female Toxicroak.

[edit] Game Information

[edit] Original Games

Toxicroak can be found in the Great Marsh as a Daily Binocular Pokémon in Diamond, Pearl and Platinum. In Heart Gold, Soul Silver, Black and White, the only way to obtain a Toxicroak is to evolve a Croagunk.

Toxicroak appear at the Pinwheel Forest in Black 2 and White 2.

[edit] Spin-Off Games

Toxicroak can be found at Sky Rift in Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness, and Sky Fissure in Explorers of Sky. The floor range is the same for both dungeons: B7-B15 & DPB1-B9. Toxicroak is exclusive to Stormy Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing at Mystery Marsh 13F-19F.

Toxicroak is a Boss Pokémon that appears in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, a battle that takes place at Pueltown during a mission early in the game, and after the game's completion inside the Capture Arena. In Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, Toxicroak can be found in the Oblivia Region's Sky Fortress on the second floor's main room and the third floor in the room on the left in the Present, and can be obtained in the Fire Temple missions "Which Switch Is for Mime Jr.?" and "Graveler's Terrible Rocks" by defeating its pre-evolved form Croagunk and obtaining the Slate that it drops. The only way to tell what slate was dropped is to beat the Boss of that level within the time limit.

The only way to obtain Toxicroak in Pokémon Conquest is to evolve a Croagunk.

[edit] Trading Card Game

Toxicroak is listed in the Diamond/Pearl Promo set, and is listed as a Rare Card in the Mysterious Treasures, Majestic Dawn, Platinum and Arceus sets.

[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] Anime

Saturn of Team Galactic would use a Toxicroak in a number of appearances starting with the episode Enter Galactic and concluding with The Battle Finale of Legend!

[edit] Movies

A Wild Toxicroak appears in the film Arceus and the Jewel of Life, the only appearance for Toxicroak in the films as of writing. It is also the only time that a Wild Toxicroak has appeared in either the Anime or the films.

[edit] Manga

Team Galactic Admins Jupiter and Saturn would both use a Toxicroak at various points in the Manga.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Toxicroak's movepool diversity, the introduction of Politoed with the Drizzle Ability and Drain Punch's improved Base Attack have all contributed to Toxicroak getting promoted to the Over-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling. Amongst the sets that it can use include physical sweeping, special sweeping, Sub-Punch or Bulk Up. Regardless the set that it is running, Politoed is its best possible teammate to get the best usage possible out of the Dry Skin Ability.

The amount of sets that a Toxicroak can be using make countering Toxicroak difficult, as the best counters depend on the set that it is running. It is worth noting that the only way for a Toxicroak to know Focus Punch is by learning it in Generation IV before being transferred to a Generation V game.
