Treecko (キモリ) is the first Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Grass Type, and is known as the Wood Gecko Pokémon.

Treecko has the ability Overgrow. With this ability, the power of Treecko's Grass-Type attacks increases by 50% once its HP falls below one-third of its maximum. Treecko from the Dream World can have a second ability, called Unburden. This Ability doubles the Pokémon's Speed stat once its held item is consumed.

Treecko can evolve into Grovyle starting at Level 16, and a second time into Sceptile starting at Level 36.

Treecko is in the Egg Groups Dragon and Monster, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Treecko 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
