Pokkle (ポックル, Pokkuru) was examinee #53 during the 287th Hunter Examination,[1] which was his second attempt at the Hunter Exam. He later becomes a Beast Hunter.[2]

Personality

Pokkle is very self-confident about his abilities, but at the same time very cautious. He immediately understands when he is in real danger and always has a reserve plan. Depicted as fairly skilled in his own right, Pokkle has a strong drive, but is not exceptionally talented when compared to other characters.

Plot

Hunter Exam arc

Pokkle takes Kyu's badge

Pokkle takes Kyu's badge

In the Nippon Animation anime adaptation, Pokkle was first introduced during the first phase of the exam in the Numere Wetlands. In this version, he is substituted for Cherry in the scene where Kurapika and Leorio attempt to escape Hisoka's rampage in the swamp. In the bonus phase of the Exam, he was shown to be a knowledgeable mechanic by fixing the old battleship's steam turbine engine. Pokkle does not make an appearance in the manga until reaching the end of Trick Tower.

Pokkle managed to pass the fourth phase by defeating his target, Kyu with a paralyzing arrow and then taking the badge from him.[3] He also passed the fifth phase relatively quickly—first fighting Hanzo, which he lost, then against Killua, who let him win. After having passed all the phases, Pokkle finally realized his dream and became a professional Hunter.[4]

Killua 2

Killua not interested in fighting Pokkle

During the discussion that took place after the Exam, Pokkle had lingering doubts over the way Kurapika had passed the last stage, but he decided to ignore it.[5] Pokkle then apologized to Kurapika for his suspicions, saying that the end of the exam seemed anti-climactic and admitted that he was dissatisfied with his own win "by default." He gave his home code to Kurapika, Leorio, and Gon before departing to become a successful Cryptid Beast Hunter after obtaining the license.[6]

Heavens Arena arc

During Gon and Killua's training in the Heavens Arena, it is revealed by Wing that Pokkle learned Nen after the Hunter Exam. According to what Wing said, Pokkle had problems with learning Ren.[7]

Chimera Ant arc

After the Hunter Exam, Pokkle does not make another appearance until the advent of the Chimera Ants in NGL. He entered NGL after learning of the insect limb found south of Yorknew City, accompanied by a couple of amateur Hunters and Ponzu.[8]

Pokkle's fight

Pokkle vs Pike

While surveying the area, he and his colleagues stumbled upon a Chimera Ant feeding squadron murdering humans with weapons.[9] Realizing the danger of the situation, Pokkle intended to escape the country and inform the rest of the world until his group was ambushed by Zazan's squadron. Pike, a Chimera Ant who can instinctively sense Nen, eats Balda, one of Pokkle's colleagues, alive. In a blind fury, Pokkle charges forth to attack the ant, but is paralyzed after being stung and injected with a neurotoxin through Zazan's tail.[10]

Pokkle was captured alive and brought to the Ants' mound for the Queen's consumption.[11] Thanks to a panacea serum hidden in his mouth, Pokkle regained his ability to move and managed to hide underneath a pile of leftover skulls from the Queen's food.[12]

At first, the ants were unable to find Pokkle, but he was later discovered by Neferpitou[13] who removed the top of Pokkle's skull to manipulate him into telling the Chimera Ants the specifics about Nen by probing his brain. After giving the information, Pokkle was killed and butchered to be eaten by the Queen.[14]

Abilities & Powers

Pokkle targeting Kyu

Pokkle with his bow

Pokkle was an accomplished archer who carried a bow and shaft of arrows wherever he went. The arrows were tipped with a potent tranquilizer that, even with a small nick, induced paralysis for any person for up to a week. Due to his use of poisons, Pokkle always carried on him an antidote against his and other poisons.[15]

Nen

Pokkle was an Emitter, and had the ability to separate the aura from his body and shoot it against the enemy. His "Rainbow: Seven Spectrum Array" probably involved Transmutation as well.

Pokkle's Nen Type: Emission
Rainbow (七色弓箭 (レインボウ) Seven Spectrum Array)
Rainbow Pokkle Pokkle first transmutes his aura into an arrow with his right hand while simultaneously transmuting his aura into an elastic sling between the thumb and middle finger on his left hand. Taking aim using the pointer finger on his left hand, Pokkle can then emit the transmuted arrow by releasing his right hand's grasp. Pokkle can transmute his aura into seven differently colored arrows; presumably, each has its own attribute.[16]
Type: Emission Red Arrow (赤の弓 (???) Red Arrow)
Pokkle red arrow Red arrows burst into flame on contact, causing Pokkle's target to catch fire.[17]
Type: Emission Orange Arrow (橙の弓 (???) Orange Arrow)
Orange Arrow Orange arrows have the fastest speed.[18]


Trivia

  • Pokkle bears physical resemblance to Genkai of YuYu Hakusho.
  • His Seven Spectrum Array is also similar to Suzaku's Prism Storm Of Torment, another YuYu Hakusho character.
  • Pokkle is the only graduated 287th Hunter Exam Examinee to have died so far.
