Trivia

Origin

It appears to have been based on an elephant, although it resembles the tire of an automobile when curled up or using its trademark Rollout attack.

Name origin

Phan obviously comes from elephant. Don could mean a lord, a root meaning teeth, referring to its tusks, or mastodon, a prehistoric elephant.
