Storkeling (Japanese: ナミドリ, Namidori) is a dual Flying and Water-type Pokémon. It evolves into Crescrane at level 23.


Storkeling is a medium to large Pokémon with a long neck, long legs, and white feather. It has a red head with a long, yellow bill. It's entire head is red with a black band stretching across the neck. It also has black markings on its tail.


Storkeling, while appears clumsy, is very agile in the water. It can move soundlessly in rivers and ponds it calls home. While it is capable of sustained flight, it is unable to match the flying ability of Meadoriole. It can use its sharp bill to pierce fish when hunting.


Storekling is a mostly solitary individual but will congregate into groups along with Crescrane. It spends most of its time flying and hunting.


Storkeling feeds mostly on fish, crustaceans, aquatic insects, as well as grasses and fruits.


It can be found in rivers and ponds as well as marshes and wetlands.
