Physical Description[edit]

Treecko is a small, green, bipedal reptilian pokémon. It has yellow eyes with long, narrow pupils. Treecko's hands and feet each have three digits covered with tiny spikes. These spikes allow it to scale vertical walls with ease. Its stomach and throat are red. It also has a line across on its stomach resembling a pouch. Treecko has a large, dark green tail with two separate lobes that it uses to sense humidity. This ability allows it to predict the next day's weather. It may resemble a leaf but is actually much harder in texture and can be used to slam things.

Some specimens, however, have been seen to have the color of salamence.


Treecko are an abundant race first found in the rainforests and coniferous jungles of the tropical Hoenn region. Their population seems to trace as far as up to the battle frontier. They were known to live in clans which took care of the great trees of the forests. Their standoffish manner made them popular among children who liked "cool" pokemon. Before long, they were a common staple for new trainers entering the Hoenn. A treecko would usually be offered as a sample to the trainer. As a treecko grew, not only did its size change, but its tail also became more leafy and it grew sharp leaves on its elbows. Eventually, they would become a sceptile.


Within their clans, an old treecko usually advises the population on the courses of action. It may be taking care of a dying giant of the forest, or moving on to a new home. Solitary treecko are not unheard of, but it is rather dangerous for creatures of their stature. Nonetheless, treecko tend to spend time around the streams of the forests, which lead to waterfalls. Eager to evolve to grovyle, and eventual sceptile, treecko will often rigorously train in their own time to attain power. Sometimes the evolved form of the treecko may live among them like a boss.

Treecko Names[edit]

Treecko are sometimes given Draconian names. Other times, they may take a Sylvan name. Many end up mixing the two.
