Trivia

  • Not counted with cross-generation evolutionary line, it has the highest base stats total of all non fully-evolved Pokémon.

Origin

Aaken appears to draw inspiration from Archaeopteryx. However, since its Pokédex entry states that it is unable to fly, it also seems to be based off of small, flightless feathered dinosaurs such as Caudipteryx or Velociraptor.
