Murkrow (Japaneseヤミカラス Yamikarasu) is a dual-type Dark/Flying Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves into Honchkrow when exposed to a Dusk Stone.

Biology

Murkrow is an avian Pokémon with black feathers. Its crooked, yellow beak and the three, feathery tufts on its head resemble a witch's nose and hat respectively. The feathery crest is smaller on the female than on the male. It has semi-circular, red eyes with white sclerae and pupils and a spiky collar of feathers around its neck. The shaggy feathers on its tail resemble the end of a broom, and there is a thin, red band at the base of the tail. Its yellow feet have four toes, three facing forward and one backward.

Murkrow has a fondness for anything sparkly, and it will steal things such as jewelry to bring it back to its nest. Its fondness for shiny objects go as far as fighting with other Pokémon that enjoy shiny objects, such as Meowth and Persian, to gain their stashes. Whenever it is chased, it loses the attacker by leading it down dark mountain trails, and sometimes it does this to travelers as a mean spirited prank. Superstition regards Murkrow as Pokémon of ominous things to come, and of great misfortune if one is seen at night. It is possible to train a Murkrow to repeat words, as seen under Team Rocket's ownership. Murkrow usually lives in forests or swamps.

Trivia

Origin

Murkrow is based on a crow, more specifically the Carrion Crow. Its crest resembles that of the Black Hawk-Eagle. Its crest can also be taken to resemble a pointed hat, and its tail the bristles of a broom, giving it a resemblance to a witch in flight. In regards to its Generation IV evolution, it can also be taken to resemble a gang member under a head Honchkrow. Its ability to mimic voices is referencing crows' and ravens' ability to imitate other sounds.

Name origin

Murkrow is a combination of murky or murder (a group of crows) and crow.

Yamikarasu is a combination of 闇 yami (dark) and 烏 karasu (crow).
