Absol (Japanese: アブソル Abusoru) is a Dark-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

Biology

Physiology

Absol has a dark blue face with a short, cat-like muzzle, a small, black, triangular nose, a scythe-like tail, and sickle-shaped growth on the right side of its head. It also has an oval marking on the top of its head. Some believe this to be an abnormal development of its right ear, but it is actually a horn, as said in its PokéDex entry. Despite its appearance, this horn is actually very soft to the touch, particularly whenever Absol is not tense or angry.

Upon Mega Evolution, Absol's appearance doesn't change much except for larger horns. It's white fur has gotten fluffier and longer around its ankles. When Absol Mega Evolves, the fur on its back stiffens up giving it the appearance of wings. It can glide on the winds, but can't fly.

Shiny Absol’s face, tail, claws and oval marking are red instead of dark blue.

Behavior

Like owls, it seems to have one ear point upward and one point downward, supposedly to hear the exact location a sound is coming from. Absol is a very good-natured Pokémon that warns people of up-coming disasters by appearing before them. When it is not warning people in nearby cities, it spends its time up in the mountains. They have a snowy-white coat that is very soft to the touch.

Natural abilities

Absol has an ability called Pressure which reduces a foe's PP in their moves every time Absol lands a successful attack.

It has another ability called Super Luck which increases Absol's chances of landing a critical hit.

Absol is capable of sensing an incoming disaster with its horn and goes to stop it.

Evolution

Absol can not evolve, however it can be Mega Evolved during battle in Pokémon X and Y.

Trivia

Etymology

  • The name "Absol" could mean absence of sol, or sunlight, which may refer to the fact that there is no sunlight (literally) or happiness (figuratively) in a natural disaster, explains why it is a Dark-type, and also why it is a nocturnal Pokémon. Another possible etymology comes from the word absolve, i.e. Absol is absolved of any responsibility once the people have been warned. The name could also come from absolution. Its name could also mean absolute because white is an absolute color, and in the game the dark blue areas appear black, also an absolute.
