Good Luck! I'll be waiting for you in my lab!
We all love him!
Dunsparce. Nokocchi. Dummisel. Insolourdo. Whatever you call it, this little guy is the best thing ever.
Sitting comfortably at number 206 in the Pokedex, he's here to headbutt you to death.
But Bugboy, you ask, what is such an odd pokemon based off of? Well, as the worlds premier Dunsparce fan, I'll tell you!.
Dunsparce is based off of the mythical tsuchinoko
, a japanese cryptid.
Dunsparce is based on the mythical tsuchinoko. Similar to Bigfoot or the Chupacabra, sightings and reports appear in the Japanese media, however hard evidence is always lacking. Tsuchinoko are 30 cm to 80 cm long, with a large head and poisonous fangs. Its body is thicker than its head and tail. The noises it makes resemble squeaks, chirps and snores. Unlike real snakes, which slither from side to side, a tsuchinoko wiggles ahead in a straight line. The tsuchinoko curls its body to leap through the air. Moreover, the fact that Dunsparce, a snake-like creature, has wings also brings to mind the motif of the Feathered Serpent, a prominent deity or supernatural being in many Mesoamerican religions. In addition, Dunsparce shares some traits with bumblebees, including their stripes, tiny wings, and stinger-like tail.
In the pokemon games, he lives in the Dark Cave in Johto, and can be found under rocks or during the occasional swarm.
For those curious about his name, it comes from Dun (grayish) and Sparce (because he’s rare)
What is he good for? Looking cute! But aside from that, his Serene Grace allows him to do some pretty great things!
For those of you who don't know, Serene Grace doubles the chance of having an additional effect on your moves. That means that he's an ideal Flinchhaxer! He can paralyze you with Glare or Thunder Wave, then pound you with STAB Headbutt. Thanks to Serene Grace, Headbutt has a 60%(!) chance of flinching, reducing your opponent down to a 30% chance of hitting you. And if they do manage to deal some damage, just sponge it with Dunsparce's amazing HP and then Roost it all away!
Dunsparce can also use Charge Beam for a whopping 100% percent chance of Special Attack bonus! Then use Ancient Power for a 20% chance of a bonus to every
stat! You'll be sweeping Red in no time!
Oh, and the coolest thing about Dunsparce? He can fly! (just a little)
