Trivia

  • Genosect is currently the only Pokémon which names a villainous team in its Pokédex entry.

Origin

Genosect may be generally based on the giant insects of the Paleozoic era, although its Steel-type features give it a somewhat robotic appearance. The crest on its head resembles a laser gun or other man-made weapon.

Name origin

Genosect's name may be a combination of the English words genocide or genetic and insect.
