Pokédex Entries

Scarlet: It searches for food all day. It possesses a keen sense of smell but doesn’t use it for anything other than foraging.

Violet: This Pokémon spurns all but the finest of foods. Its body gives off an herblike scent that bug Pokémon detest.


A Gourmand with an Excellent Nose

Lechonk uses its sense of smell to find and eat only the most fragrant wild grasses and the richest Berries. As a result of its dining habits, it has come to radiate an aroma resembling herbs that bug Pokémon dislike.

Timid and Fainthearted — but Also Strong

If attacked by an opponent and startled, it will charge forward in a panic. It may appear fat at first glance, but in reality, the Pokémon’s body is mostly muscle built by constantly walking around in search of food.

Descriptions from the Official Pokémon Scarlet Violet Website.


Lechonk is a short and rotund pokémon. Its stubby legs stick out from its circle body, giving it a chubby and cuddly appearance. Lechonk's main features include a big, pink triangle-shaped nose, floppy light brown ears, a curly tail, and round eyes that have yellow markings under them resembling tears or eye-makeup.
