Ekans (Japanese: アーボ Arbo) is a Poison-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Arbok starting at level 22.

Biology

Physiology

This reptilian Pokémon is serpentine. It has a rattle at the tip of its tail, and is mostly purple while its underbelly, eyes, rattle, and the "bands" on it are yellow.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Ekans are able to detach their jaws to swallow large prey whole, although this makes their bodies heavy. It can also use its tongue to sense danger, and can move quietly through the grass.

Behavior

Like actual snakes, Ekans will lash out with a bite when frightened by anything it sees as a threat. If one happens to be bitten by a young Ekans, they are lucky. As an Ekans, it does not possess the ability to add venom to its bite until after it evolves into an Arbok, though this last bit of information clashes with Ekans's dungeon phrase.

Habitat

Grassland

Grassland Pokémon

Ekans live in grassy savannas and plains. It also inhabits cemeteries. It is found in Kanto and Johto.

Diet

Ekans' favorite food is Eggs from Pidgey and Spearow nests.
