Pokédex entries

  • Sword

    Though it's able to capture prey by freezing its surroundings, it has trouble eating the prey afterward because its mouth is on top of its head.

  • Shield

    The skin on its face is impervious to attack, but breathing difficulties made this Pokémon go extinct anyway.

Trivia

  • Arctovish, alongside the other Galar Fossil Pokémon are the first Fossil Pokémon that:
    • Cannot Breed.
    • Lack Rock as a Primary or Secondary typing.
    • Are revived from more than one fossil.
    • Are Genderless.

Origin

Arctovish is based on a Dunkleosteus with its head on backwards, referring to early paleontological restorations which are now known to be incorrect. Alternatively, it may be based on fossil chimeras common in the early days of paleontology, with the head being based on a Dunkleosteus and the lower body being based on Mosasaurus.

Etymology

Arctovish comes from arctic, fish, vicious, and possibly the Russian name suffix -vich (from its Ice type).

Uochirudon comes from 魚 (uo, fish), "chill," and "don" (Greek for "tooth" or Spanish for "lord").
