Need to create a "Gen VIII" case in the Template:Dex/Gen and add "Sword" and "Shield" version cases to Template:Dex/Entry2. — Rmkane (talk) 18:20, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

Name Origin

Should it be said that the "meso" of their Japanese name could, in addition to being from "mesomeso", be a reference to the Mesosaurus (an extinct marine reptile, "commonly believed to have been the first")?--Garr9988 (talk) 02:31, 28 February 2019 (UTC)

Makes sense and it can explain Sobble's type. Macpika (talk) 01:15, 10 March 2019 (UTC)


Quadruped is mispelled as quadroped in the article's Biology section. --Landfish7 03:23, 28 February 2019 (UTC)


Sobble might be based on a chameleon.Robbie (talk) 15:05, 28 February 2019 (UTC)

I agree! Esquilo30 (talk) 01:16, 1 March 2019 (UTC)

National Pokédex number

Because every new Pokémon for Sword & Shield will be numbered after Melmetal, that means that Sobble's NatDex number is #816.

Victini says that is not guaranteed. --HoennMaster 18:57, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

How Sobble's Species Origin Connects with Water?

Macpika (talk) 23:03, 8 March 2019 (UTC) I am aware that Sobble is based on a chameleon because of its appearance and its ability to change color, but something kind of puzzles me.

The previous Water-type starters are all based on semi-aquatic animals, but I haven't heard of chameleons being aquatic. Are there some species of chameleons that are aquatic (or capable of swimming) or is Sobble also based on other lizards that are aquatic like the basilisk lizard?

1. Maybe Sobble will evolve into pokemon more based on semi-aquatic lizards or anything else associated with water.

2. A lot of the Grass-type and Fire-type starters are based on animals that have no association with plants and fire either.Robbie (talk) 14:56, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

I never thought about it. You have a good point. Macpika (talk) 20:37, 14 March 2019 (UTC)

Sobble's Connection with Water Solved!

We know Sobble is based on a chameleon and I believe I figured out how it connects with water.

It could be based on the Veiled chameleon. Even though it's not aquatic, it has a special adaption to collect water in its habitat where there is little water. This species of chameleon has a casque (the helmet-like protrusion on top of its head) that collects water. At night, droplets of moisture roll down the casque and into the chameleon's mouth.

The way the droplets flow down the Veiled chameleon's face could give the illusion that it's crying which could explain the teardrop markings on Sobble's face. The adult males of this species have defined bands of blue and yellow. Those two colors are part of Sobble's color scheme.

Here are the links for more information: (As you scroll down, start reading where is says "A water-catching casque.")

Here is a picture of the adult male Veiled chameleon:
