Deino #633


Deino is a little blue quadrupedal Pokémon with black fur covering its head and neck, hiding everything except its lips. Six purple dots encircle the fur around its neck, which resemble bruises. The hair on top of its head resembles a single little horn. It also has a short tail that looks to have been chewed off. Deino’s body is riddled with wounds.

Deino, being blind, navigates its environment through ramming and biting. It will eat everything that moves, and it remembers the odors of its favorite foods. It possesses the stamina and ability to bite continually, making it hazardous to approach if measures are not taken. When pleased, it may rise up on its hind legs, as shown in the anime. It typically inhabits caverns with plenty of water.
