Mantine is the second Pokémon to have more than one Pokémon in one of its sprites. The first is Kangaskhan, although Kangaskhan is just holding its own baby, not a Pokémon of an entirely different species.
- What about Slowbro and Slowking? I'd have thought the Shellder in their sprites would count... Bikini Miltank 14:59, 20 September 2009 (UTC)
I've always thought it would count too...--Maii 19:19, 16 October 2009 (UTC)Maii
- Shouldn't we put something like how Mantine is the only Pokémon that requires another Pokémon for evolution, thus Mantyke cannot be evolved when the only Pokémon in its party.
- AND Mantine is the only Pokémon to have another Pokémon obtainable in the games in its sprite.
And maybe something about how real Remoras eat plankton off of sharks, just to consider it.
Trivia bullet #3
Mantine's shiny sprites in the second and third Generations also show the Remoraid attached to it to be an alternate color; however, they are depicted as light blue rather than gray or pink, the usual color of a shiny Remoraid.
- In G/S/C, the Remoraid is tan in the non-shiny sprites due to color limitations, and turns its normal light-blue in Mantine's shiny form. In Gen 3, the Remoraid stays the same color in both forms apart from a few pixels. --IWannaBeTheVeryBest 21:35, 17 December 2010 (UTC)
Is it worth noting that although Mantyke's evolution requires a Remoraid in the party, neither Generation IV nor Generation V show a Remoraid in Mantine's sprite? That seemed odd to me, but I wasn't sure. (I know we're not doing trivia now. I meant when we get to a point where we are.) Ikarishipper900 15:42, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
