Trivia

  • Despite being part Template:Type2, Venonat could only learn one damage-dealing Poison-type move before Generation IV. In Generation I, Venonat could not learn any damage dealing Poison moves at all.
  • Venonat was originally to evolve into Butterfree, hence the similarities.

Origin

Venonat is most likely based on a gnat.

Name origin

Venonat's name is likely a combination of venom and gnat, a small insect. Its Japanese name is possibly a combination of こんちゅう konchū, meaning insect, and the word pang, which is the sound that a radar makes, referring to its radar-like eyes. It could also be a shortening of コンパウンド アイ, compound eye, both referring to its eyes and its ability.

In other languages

  • German: Bluzuk: from Blut (blood) and and a form of zutschen (to sip).
  • French: Mimitoss - From mignon (cute), mite (moth), and English toss.
  • Korean: 콘팡 Konpang
  • Chinese (Taiwan): 毛球 Máo Qiú - "Hair/fluff/fur ball".
