Muk, like Grimer, are also colonies of simple pseudoorganisms. Differences at the microscopic level between Grimer and Muk are very little, but they create an overall different creature. For starters, the cells of a Muk decay much more vigorously. This causes the secretions of the Muk to have much different properties; it emits an extremely foul-smelling odor, it slowly causes anything it comes in contact with to decay, and its [=LD50=] is one-thirtieth of Grimer's. The secretions also create a film around the Muk, making it more durable. However, the secretions are not able to be reconverted. This means that the Muk needs to consume much greater amounts of food than a Grimer would. Fortunately for the Muk, the Muk is more suited to mass consumption. Muk are only limited in size by the amount of food in the area.

Grimer and Muk are independent creatures. They typically ignore one another except when gathering to feed on large piles of toxic chemicals, in which case they may cooperate to obtain a particularly rich food source. Grimer are always subservient to Muk, who frequently become de facto social leaders when large colonies of these creatures gather.

!! Diet: Grimer

Grimer prefer to attack and consume smaller Pokemon, although they are capable of taking down creatures larger than they are by suffocation. They also seek out and consume sludge and other "filthy" things, preferring industrial sludge. Grimer can mutate small amounts (10-15%) of the sludge it consumes into more of the pseudoorganisms, increasing the size of the colony. Grimer also seek out and absorb other Grimer.

!! Diet: Muk

Muk consume anything smaller than they are, although they prefer living organisms, Grimer, and plastics. They also consume sludge, much more efficiently (75-100%) than Grimer. Muk chase down things much smaller than them and ambush things only slightly smaller than they are.

!! Diet: Muk

Muk consume anything smaller than they are, although they prefer raw sewage, toxic chemicals, nuclear waste and other hazardous substances. They have been known to congregate in sewers or dirty industrial plants to feast on the sludge in these areas, to the point of clogging the sewers or shutting down the power stations. Although the problem is frequently dealt with by driving the Grimer and Muk away, some enterprising cities and factory owners have actually begun taming the Grimer and Muk to raise in captivity. They will feed the Grimer and Muk the toxic byproducts of their operations, effectively using the Pokemon as living organisms, Grimer, waste disposal systems. This has proven a highly effective solution both in dealing with toxic pollutants and plastics. They also consume sludge, much more efficiently (75-100%) than Grimer. Muk chase down things much smaller than them and ambush things only slightly smaller than they are.

Grimer and Muk colonies secrete an acidic, virulent, and extremely toxic chemical. This comes from the decay of the organism upon coming into contact with air. Secretions from a Muk are more virulent than those from a Grimer, and cause anything it comes in contact with to decay. Contact with Grimer secretions causes death in plants and small Pokemon, and poisoning in trees, larger Pokemon and humans. Symptoms of Grimer poisoning include a fever, nausea, and a rash where the secretions came into contact. Muk secretions cause plants, trees, and small animals to die, and potentially fatal poisoning in humans and larger Pokemon. Symptoms include shortness of breath, blurred vision, shock, and paralysis.

Grimer are also capable of physically attacking, usually by attempting to suffocate the target. Larger Muk are capable of grabbing individuals and consuming them whole. Muk are also able to fling their sludge for long distances. Grimer and Muk are also radioactive, emitting potentially harmful X-rays.

X-rays.

Curiously enough, however, the harmful effects of contact with a Grimer or Muk only appear to take place when the Pokemon actually wills it. Grimers and Muks used in Pokemon battles typically only apply enough toxicity to harm their opponents, but no more so than the typical attacks of an Electric or Fire-type Pokemon. In fact, contact with a Grimer or Muk may be completely harmless. The world-renowned Pokemon biologist Professor Samuel Oak frequently entertains fellow Pokemon researchers as guests at his laboratory just outside Pallet Town, Kanto. Many of these guests have reported being affectionately smothered by a Muk owned by one of the trainers that Professor Oak supports, and that is typically kept at the Professor's lab. No one who has been slimed by this Muk has ever suffered any medical problems from it, and their doctors have uniformly assured them of their good health.



If you encounter a Muk, call the authorities. Bases cause the film to violently effervesce and scatter. Fire [[InfernalRetaliation only ignites the film.]] Both of these [[UnstoppableRage anger the Muk.]]



Capturing and owning a Muk is not recommended. Muk also cannot be captured by anything short of a specially made ball, due to the acid secretions somehow being able to rot through the ball - and a hyperpressurized Muk is a very bad thing. Sufficiently large Muk are legally declared as bioweaponry, and are illegal to own without permission. More often than not, destroying a Muk requires teams of firefighters using chemicals specifically designed to destroy Muk.

[[BeyondTheImpossible If you do somehow capture a Grimer or Muk]], immediately seek the advice of an expert, such as Koga of Fuschia City Gym.

Although Grimer appears to be a single organism, it is actually a colony of simple pseudoorganisms. The cellular structure is radically different than that of other organisms, appearing to be constructed of petroleum compounds and other industrial waste products. They also emit X-ray radiation, which has led some to believe that is it sludge exposed to X-rays. These pseudoorganisms have a weak form of specialization, forming rudimentary eyespots and an extremely simple digestive sac. Most types of this pseudoorganism die off upon contact with the air, rapidly decaying into an extremely toxic and putrid smelling byproduct that Grimer uses as a natural defense mechanism. This byproduct can be reconverted into cells, resulting in only a mild net loss of Grimer. The organisms making up Grimer are highly acidic, and decay rapidly and spectacularly when a base is applied. Therefore, an effective way of dealing with Grimer are soaps and cleaning supplies, although this has the side-effect of making the Grimer explode.

!! Physical Description: Grimer and Muk

Grimer and Muk look like mobile piles or puddles of sludge. This sludge is usually purple, although brown, black, gray, and green Grimer and Muk have been recorded. Grimer and Muk also have two gray spots near
the edit button center of the Grimer/Muk. These are commonly misinterpreted by artists to start be fully functional eyes. Grimer are about 1-3 feet in height and 4-12 feet wide. Muk are about 6 feet tall and 15 feet wide, but are usually larger. Muk usually are wider than Grimer, but the surefire way to tell the difference is the stench.

Therefore, an effective way of dealing with Grimer are soaps and cleaning supplies, although this has the side-effect of making the Grimer explode.

!! Evolution

When three to four Grimer have been combined, or a Grimer gets large enough from consuming sludge, the cells of the entire organism mutate or "evolve", transforming the Grimer into a Muk.

!! Notable Biology: Muk

For starters, the cells of a Muk decay much more vigorously. This causes the secretions of the Muk to have much different properties.

This means that the Muk needs to consume much greater amounts of food than a Grimer would. Fortunately for the Muk, the Muk is more suited to mass consumption. Muk are only limited in size by the amount of food in the area.

Grimer are also capable of physically attacking, usually by attempting to suffocate the target. Larger Muk are capable of grabbing individuals and consuming them whole. Muk are also able to fling their sludge for long distances. Grimer and Muk are also radioactive, emitting potentially harmful X-rays.
Courting
Grimer and Muk do not court. Muk, if the individual is large enough, bud, producing Grimer. Muk also, if there is a lack of food, split into anywhere from three to twelve 'pseudo-Muk'. These eventually convert into Grimer over the course of an hour, enough for them to not attack each other right after mitosis.
