Trivia

Origin

Waruvial seems to be based on the Baryonyx, a fish-eating, slender-snouted dinosaur which heavily resembled a crocodilian, and possibly a Gavial, due to its long snout. Like Sandile, it is also based on crocodilians, more specifically a slender-snouted crocodile and the spectacled caiman. It may also be based on a gang leader or criminal, as its eyes bear great resemblance to the sunglasses Ash's Squirtle wears during its time as a member of the Squirtle Squad in its criminal days.

Name origin

Its name is a combination of warui, "evil", and "gharial".
