Trivia

  • Despite its obesity, Greedent can't have the ability Thick Fat.
  • When Greedent is hit by an attack, a Leppa Berry falls out of its tail.
  • Greedent appears to be the complete opposite of its pre-evolution's personality, as while its pre-evolution gets scared if its cheek pouch is empty, Greedent completely ignores it.
    • This may be due to Skwovet being based on an invasive species (the grey squirrel), which is the reason Greedent's real-life counterpart is endangered.

Origin

Greedent is based on a fat Eurasian red squirrel. As Galar is based on the UK, Greedent may also be based on Conker, an ill-tempered, greedy red squirrel character created by British game developer Rare (now part of Microsoft), which had worked together with Nintendo on several games in the past.

Etymology

"Greedent" (which is also its name in Spanish and Italian) comes from "greedy" and "rodent".

Its Japanese name, "Yokubarisu", is a combination of 欲張り (yokubari, greed) and 栗鼠 (risu, squirrel). It may also incorporate "avarice", a synonym for greed.
