Trivia

  • Though Mareep's primary color is stated to be white, it is mostly yellow and black, and doesn't contain any large amount of white color.

Origin

It appears to be simply based on a sheep, although it might borrow its electric aspect from the way wool builds up static charges.

Name origin

Mareep's name appears to be a combination of the word Mary — as in the girl who owned a little lamb in the nursery rhyme — and sheep; Mareep is also an anagram of the word ampere, a unit of electric current.

In other languages

  • German: Voltilamm - From Volt and Lamm (lamb).
  • French: Wattouat - From watt and ouate (cotton wool), which are pronounced exactly the same.
