Inkay (Japanese?—?—? Maaiika) is a dual-type Dark/Psychic Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

It evolves into Malamar starting at level 30 when leveled up while the Nintendo 3DS system is held upside-down.

Biology

Inkay is a primarily blue squid-like Pokémon. It has a transparent mantle that resembles a hat with a pink "inner body" overlaid with yellow lights. Those who stare at those lights become dazed and lose their will to battle, allowing Inkay to escape. It has two tendril-like tentacles that hang from this "hat", similar to some styles of winter hats, and these tentacles hang next to its six short arms. Its eyes are round and have pupils, but no identifiable iris. Inkay also has a small, pink, beak-like mouth set between its eyes. It and its evolution, Malamar are the only known Pokémon capable of learning Topsy-Turvy.

Major appearances

 

James's Inkay

An Inkay appeared in A Battle of Aerial Mobility!, which James caught while he was eating sandwiches.

Other

Multiple wild Inkay appeared in Facing the Grand Design!, where James's Inkay helped save them, as well as some good Malamar, from the evil Malamar.

Pokédex entries

In the manga

 
Inkay in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Inkay debuted in Kangaskhan...Kangascan't, where it was seen with its trainer, a male Poké Fan.

Xerosic's Malamar was revealed to have been under his ownership since it was an Inkay. It evolved when Lysandre explained him it's peculiar evolution method, demonstrating it by turning Inkay upside-down, making it evolve instantly.

In the Pokémon - The Legend of the Dragon King manga

Kanna owned an Inkay.

In the TCG

Main article: Inkay (TCG)

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U

Inkay appears as a Poké Ball summon in both versions of the game. It will turn over and hit the ground, making all opponents who are on the ground trip.

Trophy information

NAInkay may look like a Water-type Pokémon, but it's actually a Dark/Psychic type! Once it has reached the proper level, Inkay can evolve into Malamar if you hold the Nintendo 3DS upside down. In Smash Bros., its Topsy-Turvy move will flip anyone who wanders too close upside down. Watch out!

PALA Pokémon that looks this much like a squid MUST be a Water-type, right? Wrong! It's a Dark- and Psychic-type. If you're struggling to get it to evolve, try holding your system upside down. In this game, Inkay's Topsy-Turvy move can knock you over, and you won't be much use like that, so watch out!

Trivia

  • Inkay and Malamar have several unique attributes:
    • In addition to Inkay's method of evolution into Malamar being unique, it would have been impossible in any of the previous core series Pokémon games, because the Nintendo 3DS is Nintendo's first handheld system with an internal gyroscope.
    • They are the only Pokémon in the Water 2 Egg Group that are not Water-type.
    • They are the only Pokémon that can have the ability Contrary without it being their Hidden Ability.
  • Inkay and its evolution were designed by Hitoshi Ariga.[1]
  • Inkay is the shortest Dark-type Pokémon.

Origin

Inkay is based on a squid or a cuttlefish. Considering its flashing abilities, Inkay may have been inspired by the vampire or humboldt squids, or by deimatic behaviour in cephalopods as a whole.

Name origin

Inkay may be a combination of ink or inkfish and okay.

Maaiika may be a combination of ? ma (demon) and ?? ika (cuttlefish or squid) or ??? maika (Japanese flying squid). It may also involve a pun of ??,??? Ma, iika (Well, whatever; Oh well).
