Snouti was the other fakemon to make its debut in the September issue of Nintendo Force Magazine. It acts as the early region mammal of Keijo.
Based on Coatis (of which there were a lot when I visited Mexico) and old-fashioned detectives. Coative's design does allude to foxes and sniffer dogs but that wasn't intentional. Also, the thumbs up and Aha! hand gestures were the basis of the tails if that wasn't obvious enough.
I also realised now I have a detective and a police officer Pokémon catchable early game - which bodes well for 10 year old kids wandering around on their own I guess...
Basic Stage: Snouti - The Long Nose Pokemon
Name Meaning: Snout-Coati

The cowlick on its tail sticks up to let other members of its troop know it is ok. It is highly inquisitive and investigates new objects with its nose.
First Stage: Coative - The Super-sleuth Pokemon
Name Meaning: Coati-Detective/Inquisitive
Once at home in the forest, their inquisitive nature has led them into cities. It's sensitive nose is always to the ground, sniffing out treats up to a mile away. It's tail sticks up when it has found something interesting.
