Trophy descriptions

In the anime

In the Pokémon anime, Ash catches a Muk, only to have its smell go through the Poké Ball. Therefore, Ash sends it to Professor Oak, who wasn't too glad at first to receive Ash's Muk.

Since then, Ash's Muk usually appears only when Ash comes to visit or calls Professor Oak. It usually tackles and smothers people with affection (particularly Professor Oak and Ash).

Pokédex entries

Title Entry
First Pokémon generation
Pokémon Red and Blue Thickly covered with a filthy, vile sludge. It is so toxic, even its footprints contain poison.
Pokémon Yellow Smells so awful, it can cause fainting. Through degeneration, it lost its sense of smell.
Pokémon Stadium Becomes indistinguishable if it hides in dirt. Touching its sludge-covered body causes horrible poisonings.
Second Pokémon generation
Pokémon Gold They love to gather in smelly areas where sludge accumulates, making the stench around them worse.

Pokémon Crystal As it moves, a very strong poison leaks from it, making the ground there barren for three years.
Third Pokémon generation
Pokémon Ruby From Muk's body seeps a foul fluid that gives off a nose-bendingly horrible stench. Just one drop of this Pokémon's body fluid can turn a pool stagnant and rancid.
Pokémon Sapphire This Pokémon's favorite food is anything that is repugnantly filthy. In dirty towns where people think nothing of throwing away litter on the streets, Muk are certain to gather.
Pokémon Emerald It prefers warm and humid habitats. In the summertime, the toxic substances in its body intensify, making Muk reek like putrid kitchen garbage.
Pokémon FireRed It is usually undetectable because it blends in with the ground. Touching it can cause terrible poisoning.
Pokémon LeafGreen Thickly covered with a filthy, vile sludge. It is so toxic, even its footprints contain poison.

Seventh Pokémon generation
Pokémon Sun Normal - The stench it gives off will make your nose scrunch up. Still, there are Muk fans who think that's a good thing.
Alola - The garbage it eats causes continuous chemical changes in its body, which produce its exceedingly vivid coloration.
Pokémon Moon Normal - After recent environmental improvements, this Pokémon is now hardly seen at all. People speculate that it may go extinct at some point.
Alola - While it's unexpectedly quiet and friendly, if it's not fed any trash for a while, it will smash its Trainer's furnishings and eat up the fragments.
