Pokemon of the Week #16: Togedemaru


Zackary Schejbal, Staff Reporter/Pokemon Expert

Welcome back fellow Pokemon trainers! This is Pokemon of the Week!

As all of you know by now, Pokemon of the Week’s main goal is to inform you on Pokemon you may encounter on your travels. This week’s Pokemon is Togedemaru, the Roly-Poly Pokemon.

This cute Pokemon’s national Pokedex number is #777. As an electric and steel type Pokemon, it is super cute but has it’s flaws.

Pokedex entries state that “The long hairs on its back act as lightning rods. The bolts of lightning it attracts are stored as energy in its electric sacs”.

This Pokemon has no pre-evolution or evolution from its form shown. It has no way to evolve, sadly.

In my opinion, this Pokemon I wish could be stronger in some aspects. As an electric and steel type like Magnezone, it seems like it is lacking in true potential that it should have.

Despite what I just said, this Pokemon is useful to a certain extent. Not to mention the Pokemon is freaking adorable.

Now, like every Pokemon, there is precautions you should take if planning to fight with any Pokemon. Since it being electric and steel, be cautious of fighting, ground, and fire type Pokemon, they can do damage to Togedemaru.

That’s all we have time for this week! Tune in next week for another exciting broadcast of Pokemon of the Week!
