Infobox

The forms need to be put into the infobox. Right now, there is no image because no file called Morpeko.png exists. However, there is a Morpeko-Full.png. --celadonk (talk)

Etymology

Although モルモット (Morumotto) is derived from the word "marmot", it does not mean marmot. It means "guinea pig". The word for marmot is マーモット (Maamotto) whereas Morupeko is referring to モルモット, guinea pig. - unsigned comment from Hakase (talkcontribs)

Unique Type Combinations

I just realized no other Pokemon has the same type combination as this Pokemon just like Galarian Wheezing. So it worth adding to trivia when the admins have a chance along with the other mentioned Pokemon.--Jacob Kogan (talk) 01:06, 8 August 2019 (UTC)

We don't know if there will be another Pokémon with this type combination (or Weezing's) in the same Generation that is unrelated to Morpeko. So not yet. Kikugi (talk) 02:30, 8 August 2019 (UTC)

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

Morpeko's physical and behavioral changes is reminiscent of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.Robbie (talk) 18:12, 8 August 2019 (UTC)

Honestly, I don't think the concept of "character with good and evil sides" is that uncommon to identify Morpeko as being based on one instance. (If we're gonna go that route, Morpeko has more similarities with Minions than it does Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. But I'd rather not think about that.) --celadonk (talk) 22:25, 8 August 2019 (UTC)
Morpeko is called the two-sided pokemon. Morpeko's connection to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde couldn't be more obvious.Robbie (talk) 23:59, 8 August 2019 (UTC)
Again, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a single instance of an overarching trope, which Morpeko participates in. "Two-sided" simply means it has two sides or two aspects-- it's not a term that's inherently related to Jekyll and Hyde, or anything at all, really. Unless more information comes out that links these two (three?) characters, there's not really a connection apart from "good guy turns evil and back". --celadonk (talk) 00:43, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
It makes sense for the British setting. Mr. Hyde is a British character. Pikazilla (talk) 01:11, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

Is this trivia worthy?

Is it worth mentioning that Morpeko is the only Pikaclone to not be able to learn Nuzzle? --PKMNAdventurer (talk) 02:11, 30 January 2020 (UTC)

Possible color origin?

Is it possible Hangry Mode's colors might be inspired by Shadow Lugia, an instance of a Pokemon going berserk? Granted, two totally different reasons for going crazy, but it could be possible? --MiasmicSiren (talk) 16:22, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

Origin

I came across this last night - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/newsbeat-53363474 and the colours match up far better (raggedy black and brown patches) that the currently listed Golden Hamster or "maybe some guinea pig breed". - unsigned comment from SJ (talkcontribs)
