Inkay (マーイーカ, Maaiika) is a fictional creature from the Pokémon universe.


Inkay is a Dark/Psychic-type Pokémon introduced in Pokémon X and Y, found in the wild in the grassy area of Route 8, and is categorized within the Pokédex at #686 as the "Revolving Pokémon". It evolves into Malamar starting at level 30 if it levels up while the 3DS is flipped upside-down.

Topsy-Turvy is a Dark-type move, the signature move of Inkay and Malamar, which reverses all stat changes of the targeted Pokémon.

Inkay appears in Super Smash Bros. 4 as a Poké Ball summon. It uses Topsy-Turvy, turning upside-down: every time it touches the ground, all enemy players on the ground will trip.

Trophy information

Inkay's trophy is randomly available in both versions. In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, it is part of the Pokémon X & Pokémon Y Trophy Box.

Ntsc Inkay may look like a Water-type Pokémon, but it's actually a Dark/Psychic type! Once it has reached the proper level, Inkay can evolve into Malamar if you hold the Nintendo 3DS upside down. In Smash Bros., its Topsy-Turvy move will flip anyone who wanders too close upside down. Watch out!
Pal A Pokémon that looks this much like a squid MUST be a Water-type, right? Wrong! It's a Dark- and Psychic-type. If you're struggling to get it to evolve, try holding your system upside down. In this game, Inkay's Topsy-Turvy move can knock you over, and you won't be much use like that, so watch out!
