Classification: The Cosmonaut Pokémon

Does not evolve
Trivia: Muttnik was the first terrestrial Pokémon to ever be sent into outer space. The data gathered in these test flights paved the way to Tenno’s first maned space missions.
Muttnik is inspired by the real-world dog Laika, one of the first animals to go to space in real life. Laika was sent into space aboard the Sputnik II, hence the name Muttnik.
