"Whenever Lickitung comes across something new, it will unfailingly give it a lick. It does so because it memorizes things by texture and by taste. It is somewhat put off by sour things."
By far, one of the oddest Pokemon in Generation I, Lickitung is something...well, it's something, and yet, as the anime would prove, this is one Pokemon you don't underestimate. Jesse from Team Rocket caught one, and then used it to beat some of Ash and Misty's best Pokemon, including Pikachu, with a single lick. That's power.
Lickitung's Basic Attacks are Lick and Zen Headbutt, while its Special Attacks are Stomp, Power Whip, or Hyper Bea.
