Cofagrigus (Japanese: デスカーン Desukaan) is a Ghost-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

Biology

Since ancient legends, it is said that Cofagrigus could eat humans and convert their lifeless bodies into mummies. Its coffin mimics an elegant place to lure unsuspecting grave robbers then punish them. It also has the ability to form two pairs of arms that can hide as a defense. His true face is covered with pieces that slide out when Cofagrigus wakes. It has four arms so it can use two to stop his opponent and then attack with the other two.

Cofagrigus and its pre-evolution were the companions of kings and pharaohs so it is not surprising to find them in pyramids or in ruins.

The coffin of Cofagrigus is his armor, and made with good heat resistant ceramic.

Physiology

Cofagrigus is a gold-plated sarcophagus-like Pokémon with a blue trimmed headpiece. It has intimidating, slanted red eyes, and a malevolent grin with numerous sharp teeth. Four long, shadowy arms stretch out of the side of its body. The mask it held as a Yamask is now moved to the center of its forehead.

Evolution

Cofagrigus is the evolved form of Yamask as of level 34.

PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond

In PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond, a Cofagrigus appears as the first boss character in the game. He is first seen outside of the first attraction, but when Pikachu beats it, one of the elemental monkeys informs Pikachu about Cofagrigus' cakes. Before Pikachu can deal with him, two large arms attempt to ensnare Pikachu, Piplup and Oshawott in their grasp. However, only Oshawott and Pikachu escape, as Piplup would suffer a most terrible fate.

When Pikachu and Oshawott return, many Pokémon are under the influence of Cofagrigus' cakes and Pikachu and Oshawott challenge Cofagrigus' attraction again. This results in the duo succeeding in complete the challenge, and Cofagrigus attempting to subdue them. A boss battle begins, and Cofagrigus hovers over a large cake while his Yamask minions attack Pikachu and Oshawott. With his tower of cake decimated, Cofagrigus challenges the duo head on, only to lose. Shortly after the battle, the duo ring the bell and Cofagrigus and Gothita teleport away.

After Darkrai is defeated, Cofagrigus is seen again getting sucked into a large void along with the rest of Wish Park.

After Darkrai is revived along with Wish Park, Cofagrigus will be at his attraction, unlockable as a friend if you battle him.

Origin

Cofagrigus is based off a haunted Egyptian sarcophagus and a mummy. Its ability to turn robbers into mummies is similar to "The Curse Of The Mummy" and grave robbers.

Etymology
