Paul's Honchkrow is a dark/flying-type Pokémon that Paul caught in Johto before traveling in Sinnoh.


As a Murkrow, it was used when Paul battled Cynthia, the Pokémon Champion, and lost to her Garchomp. Murkrow also appeared while Paul was training Chimchar.

During a flashback of Paul's battle with Maylene it was revealed that Murkrow had evolved and had defeated Maylene's Meditite and fought her Machoke to a draw. Later Honchkrow was used in a battle with Ash's Turtwig and although Turtwig evolved during the battle, Honchkrow was still victorious. Ash's Staravia also evolved whilst battling Honchkrow in a PokéRinger contest. Earlier in this contest Honchkrow was shown to be powerful enough to knock out a Dragonite with one Sky Attack.

During Paul's first six on six battle with Ash, Honchkrow battled Grotle for the second time and was victorious once again.
