How to Get Tatsugiri in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

If you even think about eating this Pokemon, you're a monster.

If there’s one thing The Pokemon Company is good at, it’s making ridiculous Pokemon. Anything can be an inspiration.

To that end, Tatsugiri tend to live its giant mouth, and with their superior intellect, instruct Dondozo on how to catch prey. How traitorous!

But maybe the last laugh is on Tatsugiri. Dondozo’s name is a pun in Japanese pun, with Donburi being a rice dish, and Dozo being a phrase said by chefs when they serve sushi. And who just had sushi walk right into his mouth…
