Trivia

  • While not an evolution of Passimian, it is considered a counterpart of it, as it is a version exclusive like Passimian as well as being of two types that one (Normal) weak to Passimian and the other (Psychic) strong against it.
  • Oranguru is one of four Pokemon that are Normal/Psychic type. The other three are Girafarig, Meloetta (in Aria Forme), and Indeedee
  • Oranguru drew comparisons to Harambe upon its debut, as previously Harambe (a gorilla shot and killed at a zoo) was petitioned by fans to be commemorated as a Pokemon. However, the official Pokemon Company has denied this.

Origin

Oranguru is based on an orangutan. It is also loosely based on Uesugi Kenshin and Zhuge Liang.

Etymology

Oranguru is a combination of the words Orangutan (a genus of primates) and Guru (a teacher that is wise and influential).

Yareyūtan is a portmanteau of やれ (yare, "do it") and "orangutan."

Names in other languages
