Kricketune is a bipedal Pokémon with an insectoid appearance. Primarily red, there are three black, oval markings on its abdomen, a yellow streak running down its neck to its belly, and a yellow underside with a small, dark red marking above it. It has oval, gray eyes and a dark red, round nose. Black feelers with curled tips extend from either side of its nose, similar in appearance to a mustache. The male's mustache is longer than a female's. On top of its head are two antennae with conical bases, spherical centers, and long, thin tips. Kricketune has two small feet and a pair of black wings. This Pokémon’s arms are shaped similar to its antennae and are crossed over its chest when it cries. It can also allow its cry to resonate in its belly. Kricketune's melodic cry varies greatly and can be used to signal its emotions.
