Biology

Kricketot is a bug-like bipedal Pokémon. The bulk of its body is red, with a black cape-like marking on its back and a crimson stripe down its front. Its head is surrounded by a flat, white structure like a collar. A female’s collar is larger than a male’s. A dark red segment connects two rigid, black antennae with curled ends to the head. This Pokémon’s snout is made of a similar dark red segment, and it has little, black hands and feet.

It can converse with other Kricketots by shaking its head and rubbing its antennae together to produce a xylophonic or marimba sound. Kricketot are known to congregate near changing-color trees. Because of their small legs, kricketots are prone to stumbling.
