Lickitung (Japanese: ベロリンガ Beroringa) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I. Instead of using its hands, it uses its tongue, which is twice its height. Its sticky saliva can grip anything and leaves a tingling sensation when it licks enemies.



Lickitung is a pink reptilian Pokémon with some white designs on its stomach, legs, and hands. It has a bulky body with a long tail and most importantly, long tongue.

Special abilities

Lickitung can have the ability Own Tempo or the ability Oblivious. Own Tempo prevents Lickitung from getting confused. Oblivious prevents Lickitung from getting infatuated. Lickitung has a tongue which is twice its body length which it uses to catch its prey. When Lickitung licks an enemy, it usually causes paralysis. Its tongue is long enough to lick itself clean. Lickitung's saliva on its tongue can easily grip anything.


Lickitung evolves into Lickilicky when levelled up while knowing the move Rollout.

In the anime

File:Jessie's Lickitung.png

Jessie had a Lickitung that she caught in Princess vs. Princess. It licked Ash's Pikachu, Ash's Bulbasaur, and Brock's Vulpix clean. Later in Tricks of the Trades, Jessie accidentally traded her Lickitung for a Wobbuffet.


  • Long before Lickilicky was added, the official Nintendo website claimed that Luigi from the Mario Bros. series was Lickitung's evolution. This was just an April Fool's joke, but some people actually took it seriously, thus making Luigi a "PokéGod to some extent".
    • Coincidentally, the generation VI Pokémon Inkay could be evolved at level 30 while holding the Nintendo 3DS upside down, which is similar to the method claimed to evolve Lickitung into Luigi.
