Trivia

  • Ducklett and its evolution Swanna learn only Water and Flying-type attacks by level-up.

Origin

Ducklett seems to be based on a duckling or cygnet. Its bottom plumage also resembles a swimming tube or some kind of swimming shorts like briefs for babies, while its evolved form has similar plumage that resembles a bikini. Its name suggests that it may also be based on the ugly duckling, who someday becomes a beautiful swan.

Name origin

Its name is probably a combination of duck and the suffix -lett, meaning small or young. Its Japanese name is likely a combination of 子 Ko, child, or 小 Ko, small, and a corruption of 鶩 Ahiru, duck.

In other languages

  • German: Piccolente - From piccolo and Ente.
