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



Treecko are small, bipedal, lizard-like Pokémon. Treeckos have two dark green tails, and a red underside, like all of 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, so it can climb on walls.

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 double its speed once it's held berry is consumed, if it is holding a berry. Tiny spikes located on each of Treecko's digits allows it to stick to and climb walls with ease.

Treecko first appeared in the episode Get the Show on the Road, where it was introduced to May as one of the Starter Pokémon from Professor Birch.

In the episode Tree's a Crowd, Ash caught a Treecko which would later evolve twice into a Sceptile. It usually puts a twig in its mouth. It also liked to wear Ash's hat.

Treecko's appearance is based heavily off of a gecko or lizard. More specifically, it is likely based on a leaf-tailed gecko.

Treecko's English name comes from combining the words "tree" and "gecko". Similarly, its Japanese name, Kimori, comes from combining the words "ki" (tree) and "yamori" (gecko).


  • Treecko and Snivy are the only Grass-type starting Pokémon not able to learn Razor Leaf.
  • It is the only Grass-type starter not to walk on all four legs, besides Snivy.
  • Treecko is the only Grass-type starter that can climb trees. Snivy may be able to climb trees as well.
  • Treecko looks like Snivy, the Grass-type starter Pokémon in the Unova region even though Snivy is based on a snake and Treecko is based on a lizard called a gecko.
