Murkrow (Japanese: ヤミカラス Yamikarasu) is a dual-type Dark/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves into Honchkrow when exposed to a Dusk Stone.

Biology

Physiology

Murkrow is a small bird Pokémon with black feathers. Murkrow's shaggy, feathery tail bears the resemblance of the end of a broom, and has a small, short, red rod-like beginning segment of it. Murkrow has a crooked, yellow beak that resembles a witch's nose, a feather-crest that resembles a witch's hat and semi-circular eyes with red pupils. Murkrow's neck seems thin in comparison to the size of the head it supports, with an extension of feathers on its neck like a collar. Murkrow has four toes on its yellow feet, three forward and one backward.

Gender differences

Females have a smaller feather crest.

Special abilities

Being a Dark-type, it has most of the abilities and attributes that are standard to them. It also has an effect of unluckiness about it, but it mostly applies to its opponents.

Behavior

Murkrow have a fondness for anything that's sparkly and has been known to steal things such as jewelry from people and hide them in all sorts of secret locations. It is these kleptomaniac tendencies that make Murkrow rivals with Meowth. Whenever a Murkrow finds itself being chased, it will lead the attacker to a dark mountain trail where the foe is bound to get itself lost. In the anime, it is said that when a Murkrow flies over someone's head late at night, something bad will happen.

Habitat

Forest

Forest Pokémon

Murkrow usually live in forests or swamps, but they have been known to move into cities.

Diet

Murkrow are scavengers, and will eat almost anything.
