Origin

Etymology

Poipole is a combination of the words poison (referring to its type) and pole (referring to its needle/pole-like shape on its head). Parts of its name also take letters from the word purple (referring to its color).

Its Japanese name, Bebenom is a combination word of the words bebe (a French name for baby) venom (another name for poison used by certain animals like reptiles and insects for most parts, which refers needle/pole-like shape on its head similar to bees and mosquitoes, and its dragonic-lineage which foreshadows its evolved form).
