Treecko (Japanese: キモリ Kimori) is the Grass-type Starter Pokémon of the Hoenn region, introduced in Generation III.

Biology

Physiology

Treecko are small, bipedal, lizard-like Pokémon. They have two dark green, leaf-like tails, and a red underside, similar to its evolutions Grovyle, and Sceptile. Each of its hands and feet have three digits. It has bright yellow eyes and skinny reptilian pupils. The bottom of its feet are sticky, enabling them to cling to things. 

Special abilities

All Treecko, and all Grass-type starters, have the ability Overgrow, which allows it to use Grass-type moves at 150% if its HP is below 33%. In the Dream World, Treecko's ability Unburden doubles its speed in battle once it's held berry is consumed, assuming it is holding a berry. Tiny spikes located on each of Treecko's digits allows it to stick to and climb walls with ease.

Evolution

Treecko evolves into Grovyle once it reaches level 16. Grovyle evolves at level 36 into Sceptile.
