Oranguru is a simian Pokémon that looks like an orangutan. While the majority of its body is coated in white fur, its hands, paws, and nose are naked, revealing its light gray skin. The fur surrounding its head and beneath its chin is longer, giving the appearance of a lengthy beard. It features a large, flat snout, as well as a black circle around its eyes. Each eye has a yellow ring marking that is surrounded by a light blue ring marking. A golden marking in the form of a four-pointed star is located in the middle of its forehead. Its back is covered in a cape of purple fur that is separated into several wavy clumps with strands of orange and bright blue running through it. Oranguru is holding a fan made of green leaves fashioned with its own purple fur.

This lonesome Pokémon spends its time deep in the forest, high up in the trees, pondering. While it is not generally active, it will feed hungry Pokémon and treat wounded Pokémon. It has even been seen using human tools or things, such as Poké Balls. It has a high opinion of itself and will issue commands to other Pokémon. This makes them challenging for Trainers to manage. The ancients considered Oranguru to be humans and referred to them as “people of the woodlands.” Oranguru does not get along with its peers, and they often compete for dominance. It will also go to the beach on occasion to compete with Slowking.

Oranguru is the only Pokémon known to be capable of learning the move Instruct.
