Trivia

"Manaty" was the original English name for Dewgong.

Origin

Dewgong is based on a seal, sea lion, or manatee.

Name origin

Dewgong's name is a corruption of dugong, which is a relative of the manatee, although it appears to have more in common with a sea lion than a sea cow. Jugon is also a corruption of dugong. The dew could also be intended to refer to the water found in mist.
