Alien in appearance, the s'sugi malchata could be mistaken for a humanoid at a great distance. However, up close there's no room for uncertaintly. An insect-like head and slitted yellow eyes cap a sinuous three part body. Long, segmented appendages protrude out of the creature's back, hooked around its torso like an extra set of ribs. Short, jagged claws cap its humanoid-hands, and wavering antennae probe the air. Oddly, the s'sugi malchata's multi-jointed legs don't make contact with the ground, it appears to hover above the Pokekehekepi on an invisible cushion.
