Arbok (Japanese: アーボック Aabokku) is a Poison-type Pokémon.

Appearance

Arbok bears a resemblance to a cobra, with the majority of its body being purple. Arbok have a "hood" much like a cobra, though it has never been shown to be able to retract it. There is a red, black and yellow pattern on this hood that looks somewhat like an angry face to intimidate other Pokémon. It is known that they are six different patterns on Arbok, each one appearing in a different generation.

Special abilities

Arbok has the abilities Intimidate and Shed Skin along with the hidden ability Unnerve. Intimidate lowers the opponent's attack stat when the player enters battle while Shed Skin cures Arbok from status aliments at the end of a turn with a 30% chance. Unnerve prevents the opponent from eating its berry.
