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 aforementioned method in which Inkay evolves would have been impossible to implement without the Nintendo 3DS motion-sensing and gyroscope technology.
  • No other Pokémon besides Inkay's evolution, Malamar, have the same dual-typing of Dark/Psychic.
  • Inkay and it's evolved form, Malamar, are the only two Pokémon who are part of the Water 2 Egg Group that is not at least part Water-type.
