Trivia

  • Murkrow is the opposite of Togetic. Murkrow brings ill fortune and Togetic brings good fortune, because Normal and Dark don't relate to each other. The same about them is they have 405 stat total, they are Flying type, and they both take a stone to evolve.

Name origin

The name "Murkrow" is derived from the words murky and crow. It could also be a combination of the words murder and crow, since a group of crows is called a murder. Its Japanese name, Yamikarasu, is a combination of yami (darkness), and yatagarasu, the crow in Japanese mythology that is said to be the embodiment of the sun.
