Trivia

  • Marowak and its pre-evolution Cubone are the only Pokémon to learn the moves Bone Club and Bonemerang.
  • Three bones appear in the Nacrene City museum. A plate on the base of the display says the bones used to be wielded by a Pokémon, referring to Marowak or Cubone.
  • The Ghost Marowak in Lavender Town is the first wild Pokémon that cannot be caught by normal gameplay and without cheating, you have to run away or defeat it. The second is Black/White Kyurem.
  • Alolan Marowak is the third Alolan form that evolves from a Kantonian Form, the others are Raichu and Exeggutor.

Origin

Marowak seems to be based off of dinosaurs. It has some elements of cavemen as well, according to its behavior of using bones as weapons and wearing skulls as helmets.

Alolan Marowak might be inspired by Hawaiian fire dancers. It may also be inspired by the Ghost Marowak that is found in Lavender Town in the Generation I games, given its Ghost typing. The fire on its club also resemble wisps, lost spirits taking the form of glowing fire.

Etymology

Marowak's name was probably based on "marrow" (which is the inside of a bone) and "whack" (the action of smacking something into something else; his/her bone).
