Surchin is a round, blue sea urchin with indigo, spherical legs and large, orange feet, each with two toes. As it's a sea urchin, Surchin is covered in spikes.
Surchin has two round eyeballs that are placed so closely to each other, it almost looks like they're connected to each other. It has small, black pupils with tiny brown irises and a shiny gloss.
Its upperlip is also covered in spikes. These spikes, located just under the eyes, are so large that they hide Surchin's mouth when it's closed.
It is able to roll underwater at high speed and to extend its blue spikes. When it stumbles and rolls away, it uses the microscopic feet on its spikes to brake.
Rather than the microscopic feet on its spikes, it prefers to walk with its large orange feet. However, it may stumble with those feet and roll away. In this case, it uses its microscopic feet as an attempt to brake.
Sometimes, food gets stuck on its spikes when it isn't preying. Using its microscopic feet, it attempts to get it off so it can enjoy its meal.
Surchin is sometimes preyed as well. By protruding and extending its spikes, it tries to wear them off by looking untasty.
Surchin lives on the seafloor, but some have been spotted on beaches.
It usually feeds itself with small fish or algae. When it is hunting (which is quite rare), it stands on top of a ledge and rolls itself towards its prey, which will get stuck on its spikes and may get poisoned.
Some food may get stuck on its spikes at random as well.
- Surchin shares both its height and weight with the following Pokémon: Kakuna and Silcoon.
- Surchin also shares with Silcoon the ability to extend its spikes, and like Kakuna, its final evolution is partly a Poison-type Pokémon.
Surchin is based on a Sea urchin.
Surchin comes from "urchin". It may also be a pun on either "sea" or "surge" (which in this case may mean "The swell or heave of the sea."
