Flavor Text

Generation 5
Black, White

A toxic fluid seeps from its body. The fluid instantly kills plants and trees on contact.

Black 2, White 2

It’s so stinky! Muk’s body contains toxic elements, and any plant will wilt when it passes by.

Generation 6
X

They love to gather in smelly areas where sludge accumulates, making the stench around them worse.

Y

A toxic fluid seeps from its body. The fluid instantly kills plants and trees on contact.

Omega Ruby

From Muk’s body seeps a foul fluid that gives off a nose-bendingly horrible stench. Just one drop of this Pokémon’s body fluid can turn a pool stagnant and rancid.

Alpha Sapphire

This Pokémon’s favorite food is anything that is repugnantly filthy. In dirty towns where people think nothing of throwing away litter on the streets, Muk are certain to gather.

Generation 7
Moon

After recent environmental improvements, this Pokémon is now hardly seen at all. People speculate that it may go extinct at some point.

Ultra Sun

Their food sources have decreased, and their numbers have declined sharply. Sludge ponds are being built to prevent their extinction.
