Biology Info


Hoothoot is an avian Pokémon with a spherical body that resembles an owl. The majority of its feathers are brown, while its belly is cream in hue. It features huge, red eyes, a short, pinkish beak, stubby wings, and a three-feather fan-like tail. Black rings around its eyes; the bottom rims of the rings feature three protrusions that resemble gear teeth, while the higher rims have extensions that resemble clock hands. Hoothoot’s feathers may get shaggy and its protrusions on its head droop, as shown in the anime. It has two pinkish feet with five-clawed toes on each. It will, however, only stand on one foot at a time and will alternate between the two at rates that are impossible to monitor with the human eye.

Every day, Hoothoot starts wailing at the same moment and tilts its head in the same pattern. This capacity is due to an unique organ that detects the rotation of the Earth and enables it to keep track of time. As a consequence, Hoothoot was long regarded a heavenly messenger of time and was reared to serve as clocks. Even now, some trainers use it as a clock. Hoothoots often nest in trees in temperate and boreal woods.


The Pokemon Hoothoot is one of the numerous monsters that may be captured in Pokemon Go. See the prerequisites for evolving Hoothoot here. Hoothoot is a Johto second generation Pokémon that was included in the February 16, 2017 update.
