Trivia

  • Seismitoad shares its species name with Palpitoad and Vibrava. They are all known as the Vibration Pokémon.
  • Seismitoad is the only Pokémon with a base stat total of 509.

Origin

Seismitoad appears to be a combination of a toad and a loudspeaker. The spherical "speakers" on its body might be inspired by the "warts" and poison glands found on most toads. Alternatively, inspiration may come from the Surinam toad, an aquatic amphibian whose backs are covered in pockets that hold its eggs. It may also be basd on a goliath frog because of its massive size. Its Pokédex entry mentions the fact that it creates vibrations underwater, which is also similar to the Surinam. The two bumps on its head may be based on the bells of a traditional alarm clock.

Seismitoad's punching ability can be explained in the same way as a person being able break glass with their voice. Seismitoad's hands will vibrate with the resonant frequency of the object about to be hit, causing extra damage when hit. This can cause devastating effects on objects; for buildings it can cause them to sway or collapse entirely, also known as a resonance disaster; for living creatures it could cause internal organ damage to the extent of possibly rupturing them.

Name origin

Seismitoad may be a combination of seismic and toad.

Gamageroge may be a combination of 蟇 gama (toad) and ゲロゲロ gerogero (onomatopoeia for frog croaking).
