Kricketot is an odd Pokémon, naturally learning only two moves this entire evolutionary phase. Its sole method of attacking is using the Bide attack, which requires it to first take damage before it can reciprocate. Its suit-like underbelly originally led to speculation that Kricketot would evolve into Ruby and Sapphire’s strangely creepy firefly Pokémon, Volbeat or Illumise, and fortunately this was not the case.
Evolves into Kricketune at Level 10.
