Muk (Japaneseベトベトン Betbeton) is a Poison-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves from Grimer starting at level 38.

In Alola, Muk has a dual-type Poison/Dark regional form. It evolves from Alolan Grimer starting at level 38.

Biology

Muk is a large, sticky, amorphous Pokémon made of living purple sludge. It has two small eyes with beady black pupils. It also has an enormous mouth with a gray tongue and strands of ooze connecting its top and bottom jaws. While it has no visible legs, it does have two arms with three fingers on each hand. However, it typically keeps one hand tucked in while it extends the other hand.

Muk is a living biohazard, leaking toxins that instantly kill all plant life it touches. Even it being in close proximity to plants will cause them to wilt and die. Extreme caution is advised in avoiding any contact with this Pokémon, as an accidental brush up can lead to severe sickness. The effects of this Pokémon can leave the landscape barren for three years. In dirty residential areas where people throw trash into the streets, it is almost certain to appear. It will readily consume nearly any waste or refuse generated by people and Pokémon alike. It can be found in heavily polluted bodies of water, cities and factories. However, Muk's population has declined due to recent environmental improvements and extermination efforts. This has led some to believe that it will go extinct at some point; sludge ponds are being built to prevent its extinction.

Alolan Muk has a more vibrant coloration, consisting of green, pink, and yellow stripes with thin blue bands in-between. The green, yellow, and pink stripes are capable of shifting downwards while the blue stays in place. It has various white, crystallized poison shards protruding from parts of its body, especially from its mouth and fingers, giving the impression of claws and fangs. It has blue eyes with a black space behind them and a bright blue tongue. Its vivid coloration is a result of the garbage it eats, which causes chemical changes in its body. Its body contains over a hundred different kinds of poisons.

Alolan Muk is unexpectedly quiet and friendly. However, if it is not fed trash for a while, its hunger will compel it to destroy its Trainer's furnishings for food. It is thought that it cannot maintain its energy without a constant source of toxins, which causes its voracious appetite. The crystals covering its body have a tendency to break off, which makes it extremely difficult to deal with due to the concentrated toxins contained within them. This variant of Muk does not produce the foul stench due to its toxins being contained in with its body.[1] Alolan Muk preys on Trubbish and Garbodor.

Ruby From Muk's body seeps a foul fluid that gives off a nose-bendingly horrible stench. Just one drop of this Pokémon's body fluid can turn a pool stagnant and rancid.
Sapphire This Pokémon's favorite food is anything that is repugnantly filthy. In dirty towns where people think nothing of throwing away litter on the streets, Muk are certain to gather.
Emerald It prefers warm and humid habitats. In the summertime, the toxic substances in its body intensify, making Muk reek like putrid kitchen garbage.
FireRed It is usually undetectable because it blends in with the ground. Touching it can cause terrible poisoning.

Sun The stench it gives off will make your nose scrunch up. Still, there are Muk fans who think that's a good thing.
Moon After recent environmental improvements, this Pokémon is now hardly seen at all. People speculate that it may go extinct at some point.
Ultra Sun Their food sources have decreased, and their numbers have declined sharply. Sludge ponds are being built to prevent their extinction.
Ultra Moon Because they scatter germs everywhere, they've long been targeted for extermination, leading to a steep decline in their population.
Let's Go Pikachu Smells so awful, it can cause fainting. Through degeneration of its nose, it lost its sense of smell.
Let's Go Eevee
Alolan Muk
Sun The garbage it eats causes continuous chemical changes in its body, which produce its exceedingly vivid coloration.
Moon While it's unexpectedly quiet and friendly, if it's not fed any trash for a while, it will smash its Trainer's furnishings and eat up the fragments.
Ultra Sun There are over a hundred kinds of poison inside its body. Chemical reactions between different poisons are the source of its vitality.
Ultra Moon What look like fangs and claws are actually crystallized poison that will afflict you at a mere touch, so don't get too close.
Let's Go Pikachu Muk's coloration becomes increasingly vivid the more it feasts on its favorite dish–trash.

Trivia

  • Muk shares similar traits to Weezing and Garbodor. All three Pokémon are pure Poison-type Pokémon with a single pre-evolved form, roughly the same base stat totals and evolution levels, and appear to be based on a different kind of pollution; Muk being water pollution.
  • Alolan Muk and its Alolan pre-evolved form were designed by Hitoshi Ariga.
  • Muk is one of two Pokémon to have the shortest English Pokémon name, Mew being the other.

Origin

Muk appears to be a pile of living sludge. It may also be based on the imagined fear that heavy pollution, caused by the leakage and/or improper disposal of toxic/radioactive waste, may result in the composition of new and undesirable life. It may also be based on Dorotabō, a one-eyed, three-fingered yōkai that rises from the mud of neglected, overgrown rice fields.

Alolan Muk may be based on an oil slick, particularly the rainbow colors that are produced when a thin layer of oil floats on top of water; this is due to a phenomenon called thin-film interference. In the real world, oil spills are a major threat to ecosystems in the world's oceans and particularly in Hawaii, which Alola is based on.

Name origin

Muk is a corruption of muck (generally something filthy).

Betbeton may be derived from べとべと betobeto (sticky) and ton.
