About

Honchkrow is roughly twice the size of its pre-evolution, Murkrow. Its feathers are mainly dark blue, while the underside of its wings is partially red. The tail’s base is a white, cylindrical stalk, on which there is a growth of red feathers on the end. Honchkrow has a white and prominent crest of feathers on its chest that bears resemblance to a beard or cravat. Honchkrow has black feet with four toes, arranged in similar fashion as Murkrow’s. Its head is supported by a broad and short neck. It has a slightly curved, yellow beak. The circular eyes have a white cornea and the pupils are red. It has dark blue eyelids. A large feather crest on its head makes it appear to be wearing a fedora hat that has spikes extending from the back. Its specific coat of feathers make it bear vague resemblance to a man dressed in a formal suit and a hat.

Origin

Honchkrow first appeared in the first Pokémon games of the 4th Generation: Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl versions, though it’s exclusive to Pokémon Diamond.
The use of Honchkrow as a meme started in 2012, when an Anonymous poster from 4chan’s Pokémon board, /vp/, posted a thread with a picture of Honchkrow and said “Honchkrow is weak to Machamp”. After said thread was posted, the /vp/ users started to express their hate for Honchkrow in various ways such as going insane.

Honchkrow and the fedora incident

People started hating on Honchkrow more than ever in mid 2013 because of its crest that resembles a fedora, its “beard” and its “insomnia marks” (circles around eyes), making it look like a neckbeard. Even though the fedora-hating meme started in 2013, fedora-wearing neckbeards were around before Honchkrow’s introduction, /vp/ users claimed Honchkrow to be the worst Pokémon ever officially in 2013.

Spread

Posts relating to Honchkrow were around the Internet since its debut in the Pokémon games, but the insane Honchkrow hate and all the Honchkrow-related memes existed only on 4chan, specially /vp/. Many Honchkrow hate images relating to Honchkrow were made on /vp/, but they stayed there instead of spreading around other websites.
