Biology

Maractus looks like a cactus and has huge ear-like appendages. These extensions include dark green spiky patterns at the base, yellow spikes further up, and blooms at the top with pink petals and yellow centers. It features a yellow spike on top of its head, yellow eyes, and a spiky mouth. Other dark green spiky arrangements cover its neck, yellow-fingered arms’ wrists, and base. Its base has more green spikes grouped in a five-pointed star.

Maractus generates noises similar to maracas as it shakes its body repeatedly. This enables Maractus to create fast-paced melodies and dances that it may utilize to frighten off predators. Avian Pokémon, in particular, may attempt to consume its flower seeds.

Maractus may be found in arid and desert-like environments.
