Otomaro appears to be a combination of a {{wp|Surinam toad|Surinam Toad tadpole}} and a loudspeaker. The Surinam Toad is an aquatic amphibian whose backs are covered in pockets that hold its eggs, which may have inspired Otomaro's spherical "speakers" on its body. Its Pokedex entry also mentions the fact that it creates vibrations underwater, also like the Surinam.

Trivia

Both Otamaro and Poliwag are Water-type Pokémon that are based on tadpoles, as well as evolve at Level 25.

Origin

Otomaro appears to be a combination of a Surinam Toad tadpole and a loudspeaker. The Surinam Toad is an aquatic amphibian whose backs are covered in pockets that hold its eggs, which may have inspired Otomaro's spherical "speakers" on its body. Its Pokedex entry also mentions the fact that it creates vibrations underwater, also like the Surinam. It seems also to be a baby toad.
