Ok, so what kind of crab is it based on? There's two spellings given for it. And the Wiki article link leads to a 'Wikipedia does not have an article with this name' page--BJG
Sorry. Fixed. -Argy
I think Heike is japanese for crayfish.
- 平家蟹 【へいけがに】 (n) Heikegani, Heike crab
It seems to be a cross between a crayfish and a lobster to me...--BJG
I found out today that "corfish" is an actual word. But I can't work out what it means, or how Corphish may be related to it. (Corpshish doesn't look like a codfish, or any kind of fish, after all...)
- I don't know, but they look nothing alike. Their names may be similar, but that's it. I don't see why somebody added a load of crap about the Corfish's biology either. empoleon dynamite 12/01/08
In Mystery Dungeon: Darkness and Time, one of the guild members is a Corphish that always says "Hey hey!" Well, I noticed that the first syllable of its Japanese name is hei, pronounced like hey. In this clip, around 30 seconds, you can clearly hear Ash's Corphish shout "Hei hei!", which sounds like "Hey hey!" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqF93w2iLmA&feature=channel_page

Jumping the gun, are we?
It says in "Trivia" that it may be from the U.S. because Lt. Surge is from there. What?! I don't think that it's safe to assume that. After all, Looker and Fantina are from seperate countries, a Rocket Grunt in GSCHGSS is from a foreign country, and there are many more examples that I could mention. In fact, there are regions that aren't part of the nation that Hoenn is in. They might even be talking about a different region in the same nation. Where in the canon does it say that it's from the U.S.? Pawsrent 23:22, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

The trivia section has the fact that Corphish is from another region listed, stating that it is the first example of an exotic species in the pokémon world. While this is still true (Corphish is the first example of an exotic species seen in Pokémon), Generation VII has introduced Pokémon which are also considered exotic species, such as Yungoos. Is this still relevant trivia? Personally, I think it is, but I think it needs to be re-worded. --LavaringX (talk) 02:37, 17 March 2018 (UTC)
