Trivia

  • Despite it's reputation as a bad swimmer, it is able to learn the HM moves Surf, Dive, and Waterfall and one of its abilities is Swift Swim.
  • In an early design for what would became Qwilfish (Japanese: ハリーセン Harysen), it was called Bukū, which was possibly a corruption of the word fugu (河豚, meaning "river pig"), which both are the Japanese word for pufferfish and the dish prepared from it.
  • Qwilfish shares the same species with Igglybuff, Jigglypuff, Wigglytuff and Drifloon: they are all known as the Balloon Pokémon.
  • In the Beta release of Gold & Silver, Qwilfish had an evolution known as Numpuff.

Origin

Qwilfish is based off of a pufferfish. Its Poison-type may be a reference to how some pufferfish have toxins that have no antidote. It may also reference how pufferfish are a common delicacy in Japan, often causing death due to its poisonous gland that is often sold and eaten.
