Cacturne (Japanese: ノクタス Nokutasu) is a Grass/Dark-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It is one of the only three Pokémon that are unaffected by a sandstorm that isn't one of the three types that are immune to sandstorms, provided it has its natural ability, Sand Veil.

Appearance

Cacturne appears to be a green Pokémon with green spikes surrounding its entire body. It also has yellow eyes with black marks surrounding it. It also has black dots making its mouth. It also appears to have a scarecrow hat, explaining it being the Scarecrow Pokémon. It has a cactus-like appearance and traits making like a Scarecrow Cactus.

Special abilities

Cacturnes have the ability Sand Veil and a hidden ability Water Absorb. Sand Veil prevents Cacturne from being attacked by sandstorms and raises its evasion 20% in sandstorms. Water Absorb prevents Cacturne from being affected by Water-type moves and restores its HP a bit when attacked by a Water-type move.

In the anime

Harley has a Cacturne that makes an appearance in AG103: A Cacturne for the Worse and a minor appearance in the move starring Deoxys and Rayquaza, Destiny Deoxys. Harley also dresses like a Cacturne.

Evolution

Cacturne is the evolved form of Cacnea as of level 32.

Origins

Cacturne appears to be a mix of a "cactus" and a "scarecrow". Its name, seeing how Cacturne is a Grass/Dark Pokémon, is a mix of the words "cactus" and "nocturnal".

Trivia

  • Despite it saying Cacturne is a nocturnal Pokémon, it can be found in the wild all the time in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, and in the morning in Pokémon Platinum.
    • It was fixed in Pokémon Platinum where Cacturne could only be found in the morning and nighttime.
  • Cacturne is the only Dark-type Pokémon unable to learn the move Snarl.
