Absol (Japanese: アブソル Abusoru) is a Dark-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III. It can learn most TMs and is known as the 'disaster' Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

Absol has a dark blue face, a scythe-like tail, and sickle-shaped growth on the right side 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.

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.

Special abilities

Absol plays a role in Red and Blue Rescue Team where it saves you and your partner from Articuno's wrath after you defeat it in battle. Then Absol joins you on your journey to meet Ninetales.

Evolution

Absol can not evolve, however it can transform into its Mega Evolution in Pokémon X/Y during battle.

Trivia

  • Absol is one of only nine pure dark types. The others are Umbreon, Poochyena, Mightyena, Darkrai, Purrloin, Liepard, Zorua, and Zoroark.
  • Though it is dark type, it may also learn a few psychic type moves, like Umbreon, another pure dark type
  • Absol is the only Non-Psychic type that can learn Psycho Cut by level-up.
  • Absol has all the qualities of a legendary Pokémon. Absol doesn't evolve. Absol has the ability Pressure which most legendary Pokémon have, and Absol resembles a legendary beast however Absol is not a legendary as more than one can be found in the wild in the same game without the use of cheat codes. However, he can evolve into Mega Absol.

Origins

Name origin

The name "Absol" could mean "absence" of "sol," or sunlight, which may refer to the fact that there is no sunlight (figuratively) or happiness (literally) 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.
