Lickitung is a bipedal Pokémon with a thick, powerful tail. It has soft, pink skin with semicircular yellow markings on its belly, and fully circular markings on its knees. It has small, beady eyes, and its hands have thumb-claws and circular yellow markings on the undersides. The most famous feature Lickitung possesses is a long prehensile tongue, which it uses to manipulate objects and possibly, to consume them. Aside from being very receptive to all sorts of tastes, its tongue is very dexterous. The tongue is very likely connected to its huge tail, as when it is extended, the tail quivers. Its height is 3'11" and weight is 144.4 lbs.
The licks from their Template:Tt-long tongue can paralyze foes and leave a tingling sensation. Their saliva is gooey and sticks to everything. Their tongues are shown to be quite strong, as they can lift Trainers with it, which was shown in Deceit and Assist.
These Pokémon appear to be like Slowpoke, rather easy-going and almost dopey, hence having Own Tempo and Oblivious as abilities. They also like to lick things they come across, but get put-off by some sour substances. They do not mean harm when they lick people for food traces. Lickitung also uses its tongue to lick its body clean.

Lickitung was first seen in Princess Versus Princess. Jessie captured it and used in the Princess Festival Tournament against Misty. After defeating Ash's Pikachu and Ash's Bulbasaur and Brock's Vulpix, it lost to Misty's Psyduck. Jessie accidentally traded her Lickitung for Benny's Wobbuffet in Tricks Of The Trade.
