#24: Arbok - Poison Type

[PokeDex Entry]



The Cobra Pokémon

  • Ultra-sun: The latest research has determined that there are over 20 possible arrangements of the patterns on its stomach.

    Alpha-sapphire: This Pokémon is terrifically strong in order to constrict things with its body. It can even flatten steel oil drums. Once Arbok wraps its body around its foe, escaping its crunching embrace is impossible.

    Y: To intimidate foes, it spreads its chest wide and makes eerie sounds by expelling air from its mouth.

    Prof. Lotus' Notes: Arbok mirrored backwords is Kobra. Arbok's design is modeled after the King Cobra. Arbok could be inspired by the mythological creature Basilisk, as it is a poison type and can learn glare. Archbishop Isidore of Seville described the Basilisk as a creature with 'the king of snakes, due to its killing glare and its poisonous breath'.
    Because Arbok's unusually sounding name, it was put at the end of the Kanto Pokerap alongside Pidgeot.
