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

Not quite... Heike is Japanese for Taira family. More info on the link between this and the crab on the linked-to article. - 振霖T 03:59, 3 Apr 2005 (UTC)

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

Name origin

Holy fudge... the Name Origin section is a little large. Could someone break it down a little? TinaTheKirlia ♥ 19:48, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

Hey hey!

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!"

Coincidence? - unsigned comment from GigaMetroid99 (talkcontribs)

Yes, it is, and please sign your comments. The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 22:48, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

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)

Sorry. Forgot to add the tildes. Pawsrent 23:22, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Exotic species

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)
