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 fake drawn 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 go as far as fighting with other Pokémon, such as Meowth or Gabite, in order 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. Its thieving and nocturnal nature has led it to become representative of misfortune. It is possible to train a Murkrow to repeat words, as seen under Team Rocket's ownership. Murkrow usually live in flocks amongst forests and swamps.

Trivia

  • Murkrow shares its category name with Sableye. They are both known as the Darkness Pokémon.
  • Despite being a Generation II Pokémon, it was actually only available in Kanto in Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal. The same is true for Slugma and Houndour. All three can be obtained in Johto via the Safari Zone in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver.
  • Murkrow can be seen as a parallel to Misdreavus. Both of them are Generation II Pokémon whose only evolutionary event utilizes a Dusk Stone into their evolved forms. Murkrow is exclusive to Pokémon FireRedDiamond, and Black while Misdreavus is exclusive to LeafGreen, Pearl, and White. Additionally, both appear to be based on fake drawn witches.
  • Murkrow is the only Pokémon that evolves with a Dusk Stone that is not a Ghost-type.
  • Murkrow is the lightest Dark-type Pokémon.
  • Murkrow comes before Misdreavus in the Johto Pokédex, but Murkrow's evolution, Honchkrow, comes after Misdreavus's evolution, Mismagius, in the Sinnoh part of the National Pokédex.
  • In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, Murkrow is programmed to be able to learn Punishment through breeding, but no other Pokémon in the Flying Group can pass down Punishment as an Egg Move in those games. Vullaby and Mandibuzz are the only Flying Egg Group Pokémon that can learn Punishment, but they cannot pass down the move due to being female-only species.

Origin

Murkrow seems to be 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 fake drawn 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 (darkness) and 烏 karasu (crow).
