Etymology[edit | edit source]

Banette's name is derived from the words "bane" and "marionette".

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Despite its Pokédex entries stating that can't open its mouth since its energy would escape, many Banettes have been seen with their mouths open in the anime and their fainting sprites have also shown them with their mouths open and they can learn Screech, Sleep Talk, Round and Astonish, all of which, involve opening its mouth (although this is an assumption with Sleep Talk as it is not specifically stated).
  • Banette played a small part in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers Of Sky's Special Episdoe "Igglybuff The Prodigy." He went exploring, along with Skorupi and Igglybuff, through the first dungeon.
  • It is said that if Banette opens it's mouth, the horrible curse that it holds will come out of it.
  • Banette is one of the few pure Ghost-type Pokémon.
  • Banette's Japanese name may derive from Geppetto, a fictional character who is most famous for creating and raising Pinocchio.
