Biology

Venonat using its "Radar Eye" to find Team Rocket's truck

Venonat has a round body covered in purple fur. Its has a pincer-like mouth, red compound eyes and a pair of white antennas. It has a pair of clodhopper feet and stubby forepaws.

Venonat can be found in dense forests, where it will sleep in the hole of a tree until nightfall. It sleeps throughout the day because the small insects it feeds on appear only at night. Both Venonat and its prey are attracted to bright lights.

Trivia

Origin

In spite of Venonat's name it is not similar to a gnat in size, physiology or behavior, other than on its compound eyes. It is likely also based on a mite, which also sucks blood, is round, and have a pincer-like mouth.

Name origin

Venonat is likely a combination of venom and gnat (a small insect).

Kongpang is possibly a combination of こんちゅう konchū (insect) and pang (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

Language Title Meaning
Japan Flag.png Japanese コンパン Kongpang Possibly from こんちゅう konchū and pang
France Flag.png French Mimitoss From mignon, mite, and English toss
Spain Flag.png Spanish Venonat Same as English name

Italy Flag.png Italian Venonat Same as English name
