#105: Alolan Marowak - Fire Ghost Type

[PokeDex Entry]



The Bone Keeper Pokémon

  • Ultra-sun: It throws bones at Mandibuzz to knock it down. It’s thought that Marowak is trying to avenge its parent.

    Moon: This Pokémon is out for vengeance on its natural enemy, Mandibuzz. It throws bones like boomerangs to try to take it down.

    Alpha-sapphire: Marowak is the evolved form of a Cubone that has overcome its sadness at the loss of its mother and grown tough. This Pokémon’s tempered and hardened spirit is not easily broken.

    Prof. Lotus' Notes: Alolan Marowak's design draws from the Samoan dance fire knife. Alolan Marowak also may draw inspiration from the Polynesian concept of mana, a spiritual essence that exists in all objects and people. Mana can be infused into objects alongside their 'spirit' or 'will' for protection or vengeance. Alolan Marowak may have also been inspired by Nightmarchers, ghosts from Hawaiian mythology and this connection being made stronger by Cubone only evolving into Marowak at night, and with a Ghost typing.
    A design element that is often overlooked is that the front part of Alolan Marowak's mask works in the same vane as a match stick as it rubs the bone on it's face to ignite the flames.
