Trivia

Facts

  • The method behind Inkay's evolution to Malamar (holding the Nintendo 3DS upside down) is unique in comparison to all other methods of Pokémon evolution.
  • The Dark/Psychic combination is exclusive to Malamar and Inkay.
  • Malamar and its pre-evolution, Inkay, are the only two Pokémon who are part of the Water 2 egg group that do not have Water typing.

Design origins

Malamar is based on an upside down squid.

Etymology

Malamar's name is based on the words mal, Latin for bad, and calamari, a commonly fried food made from squid.
