Trivia

  • Oricorio shares its category with Galarian Mr. Mime. Both of them are known as the Dancing Pokémon.
  • Oricorio can neither learn or be taught any Fire, Electric, Psychic or Ghost-type attacks. It can only use these attacks by using Revelation Dance when it is either of the four types.

Origin

Oricorio is based on Hawaiian honeycreepers, a bird species in Hawaii that is known for enjoying the nectar of certain flowers, though the flowers they prefer varies throughout the species. This has made it so they have adapted their beaks into changing shape so that they can feed from certain flowers, similarly to how Oricorio changes forms upon consuming the nectar of the flowers found around Alola. Its multiple forms may reference the Galapagos finches, another type of bird that adapts and changes appearance depending on its environment.

It also takes elements from dancers with each form being based on a different dancing style. Baile Style is based on flamenco dancing, Pom Pom Style is based on cheerleading, Pa'u Style is based on hula dancing, and Sensu Style is based on Japanese theatre dancing. The dance motif in general may also reference how some species of exotic birds performing "dances" to try and attract females.

Etymology

Oricorio might be a combination of oriole and choreography. It could also be derived from oratorio, a form of large-scale classical musical work usually involving sacred themes.

Its different form's names also derive from words in different languages. "Baile" means "dance" in Spanish, "Pom Pom" comes from the pom pom accessories often included in cheerleading, "Pa'u" means "skirt" in Hawaiian, and "Sensu" often being a name for a folding fan in Japanese, especially the ones used in dance.
