- All Pokémon that learn Acid Armor through breeding are in the Amorphous Group.
- Although a Poison-type move, Acid Armor is frequently depicted (particularly in the anime) as the Ability to melt into water or otherwise liquefy one’s own body structure, due to its Japanese name being Liquefy. Furthermore, Grimer and its evolution are the only Poison-type Pokémon that can learn Acid Armor by leveling up.
