Cubone (Japanese: カラカラ Karakara) is a Ground-Type Pokémon.

Biology

Appearance

Cubone, known as the Lonely Pokémon, appears to be a small, brown dinosaur-like Pokémon, that constantly wears its mother's skull like a helmet The skull masks its true face from view, which makes it a puzzlement for many Trainers and researchers. Its cries echo within the skull and it comes out as a pained and sad melody. On the night of a full moon, it cries, for it seems to recognize its mother's face in the moon. Its tears create stains on the skull. Cubone has a plump body with a paler-colored underbelly, with strong, clawed limbs to carry a bone as a weapon around wherever it goes. Cubone has a single, nailed toe on each foot, with two spikes on its back. A small tail is also present for balance, but it can be used for attacking.

Special abilities

Cubone can have the ability Rock Head or the ability Lightningrod. Rock Head prevents Cubone from receiving recoil damage. Lightningrod targets all Electric-type attacks towards Cubone. Cubone's real face has never been seen before, thanks to its bone mask. When it thinks of its dead mother, it cries. Its crying makes the skull it wears rattle loudly.

Appearances

In the anime

Cubone

Cubone and Pikachu

In the anime, Cubone first appeared in The School of Hard Knocks under the ownership of a pretty yet snobby Pokémon Academy student named Giselle, who battled her Cubone against Ash's Pikachu. A Cubone was among the four Pokémon that were causing trouble for Pikachu and co. during Pikachu's Vacation. A Cubone was helping Meowth preparing his party in Pichu Bros. in Party Panic. This Cubone played drums in Meowth's band and got easily sad and gloomy when Meowth chewed it out, but it was also easily consolable.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga, Cubone makes a cameo in Onix is On!, part of the Red, Green & Blue chapter, battling against Red's Bulbasaur as a Pewter Gym trainer's Pokémon. Super Nerd William used a Marowak to attack Yellow using its Bonemerang. Crystal owns a Cubone, who has a star-shaped crack in its skull. Cubone's main role in the team is to take out targets from afar using its bone-based attacks.

Evolution

Cubone evolves into Marowak at level 28.

Trivia

Cubone kangaskhan

Comparison between Cubone and Kangaskhan Baby

  • The appearance of Cubone's bone resembles that of either a broken leg bone or a tendon.
  • Cubone and Marowak are the only Pokémon that can learn Bone Club, and Bonemerang.
  • There is a popular belief that a Kangaskhan baby whose mother dies takes her skull and one of her bones and becomes a Cubone, which evolves into Marowak and then Kangaskhan. Some also believe that was how it was originally intended, and instead of deleting the Marowak-Kangaskhan code, they moved it to an empty slot, therefore creating 'M
    • Two facts supporting this is that 'M has the same palette as Marowak and that it can evolve into Kangaskhan.
    • The supposed reason for not deleting 'M's data is because the game programers didn't have enough time to do so.
    • Marowak doesn't evolve into Kangaskhan supposedly because that would cause complications in the evolutionary line.
  • Cubone and its evolution, Marowak, are the only Single-type Pokémon that can have the ability Lightningrod and aren't an Electric-type.
  • Cubone was originally going to be named "Orphan" in the Japanese games, anime, and manga.
