Trivia

  • No other Pokémon have the same type combination as Krokorok and its evolutionary relatives.
  • Krokorok is the only Pokémon with a base stat total of 351.
  • Almost all of Krokorok's stats are ten points higher than Sandile's stats; the only exception is Speed, which is just higher by 9 points.

Origin

Krokorok seems to be based on the Baryonyx, a fish-eating, slender-snouted dinosaur which heavily resembled a crocodilian. Like its pre-evolution, it is also based on a crocodile, more specifically a slender-snouted crocodile and the spectacled caiman. Its eyes, pose, and stripes make it appear to be a criminal, which is supported by its Dark type.

Name origin

Krokorok is a combination of corruptions of crocodile and rock.

Waruvile may be a combination of 悪い warui (bad/evil/sinful), evil, vile, and crocodile. It may also derive from gavial.
