Arbok (pronunciation: AHR-bok) is a Poison-type Pokémon. It is the evolved form of Ekans.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Arbok bears a resemblance to a cobra, with the majority of its body being purple. Arbok have a "hood" much like a cobra, though it has never been shown to be able to retract it. There is a red, black and yellow pattern on this hood that looks somewhat like an angry face to intimidate other Pokémon. It is known that they are six different patterns on Arbok, each one appearing in a different generation.

Evolution[edit | edit source]

Arbok is the evolved form of Ekans, as of level 22.

Special abilities[edit | edit source]

Arbok has the abilities Intimidate and Shed Skin along with the hidden ability Unnerve. Intimidate lowers the opponent's attack stat when the player enters battle while Shed Skin cures Arbok from status aliments at the end of a turn with a 30% chance. Unnerve prevents the opponent from eating its berry.

In the anime[edit | edit source]

Arbok first appeared during the first season of Pokémon during the episode Dig Those Diglett!. It made its debut when Jessie's Ekans evolved into an Arbok late in the episode.

The Entrance Exam Teacher is seen using one in The Ultimate Test. In Ring Masters an Arbok was one of the Pokémon in the Sumo Conference.

Origins[edit | edit source]

Arbok appears to be based off a cobra.

Arbok's English name is taken from the word "cobra", except spelled with a "k" making it "kobra", and spelling it backwards.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In the Pokémon anime there is a misconception that Arbok evolves into Seviper.
