Trivia

  • Tranquill is the only Pokémon with a base stat total of 358.

Origin

Judging from its Pokédex entries, Tranquill may be based on a dove, often used as a symbol of peace, and possibly a homing pigeon, a domestic pigeon bred to find its way home over extremely long distances. Its design is similar to that of the greater roadrunner or secretarybird.

Name origin

Tranquill is a combination of tranquil (calm or unstressed) and quill (a feather from the tail of a bird). It also involves quail.

Hatoboh may be a combination of 鳩 hato (pigeon) and 逃亡 tōbō (escape) or 尨 'bō' (shaggy hair). Additionally, some of the works of Kenji Miyazawa mention a fictional ideal world called 「イーハトーヴォ」 Ihatov. The Pokédex entry in Pokémon White says, "Many people believe that, deep in the forest where Tranquill live, there is a peaceful place where there is no war," which might be a reference to Kenji's utopia.
