Throh (ナゲキ) is the 44th Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex. He is a Fighting Type, and is known as the Judo Pokémon.

Throh's two abilities are Guts, which increases the Attack stat 1.5 times when the Pokémon is afflicted with with a Burn Paralyzed, Sleep, Poison, or Freeze, ignoring Burn's effect of lowering the Attack stat; and Inner Focus, which prevents the Pokémon from flinching except when attempting to use Focus Punch. A third ability, exclusive to Throh from the Dream World is called Mold Breaker, which nullifies the effect of the foe's abilities on this Pokémon in battle.

Throh cannot evolve, nor does Throh have a pre-evolved form

Throh is in the Human-Like Egg Group, and his Egg will take approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Throh One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.




Throh takes the appearance of a red judo warrior. The judo outfit bares semblence to Ryu from the Street Fighter series.

Gender Differences

Throh are exclusively male. Because of this, the only way to breed a Throh egg is for it to breed with a Ditto.

Game Information

Original Games

Spin-off Games

Throh appears at the Volcanic Slope Canyon 3-2 in Pokémon Rumble Blast.

Throh can be found at the Crag Area's Colosseum in PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond, but it won't appear until you've befriended Boldore. To befriend it you'll have to defeat both Throh and Sawk at the same time, after which Throh can be called into battle.
