Everything we know about Lickitung


Lickitung is proof of how weird a Pokémon can be, because it somehow manages to fit its seven-foot-long tongue into its 3’11” body.

The Akaname, a yōkai from Japanese mythology, is a possible inspiration for Lickitung, due to how similar they are in appearance. Both the Akaname and the Lickitung are depicted with clawed feet and, of course, a very, very, very long tongue.

Lickitung obtained a second stage of evolution after the release of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, where the Gen 4 Pokémon, Lickilicky, was introduced.

In the main Pokémon games, Lickitung has to know the move Rollout and then level up to evolve into Lickilicky. Meanwhile, in Pokémon Go, you must use a Sinnoh Stone and 100 Lickitung Candies to start this evolution.
