Pokemon Klink Trivia

  • An “X” is in place of Klink’s left eye, with a black pupil and white sclerae in its right eye. They have small mouths and turquoise noses.

  • Multiple Klink first appeared in the main series anime Evolution Exchange Excitement!, at which they were pictured inside Chargestone Cave with a Klinklang.
  • Professor Juniper claims that the first documented sighting of this Pokémon occurred around 100 years ago in the Chargestone Cave; she believes it appeared out of nowhere at that time. Klink, on the other hand, is thought to be the inspiration for the first gears invented by ancient people.
