Sprites

Appearances

Anime

It was first shown in A Ruin With A View. A group of Relicanth appeared in The Relicanth Really Can. Several Relicanth appeared in Enter Galactic! A Relicanth appeared in Up Close and Personable!

Trivia

  • Relicanth is one of the essential two Pokémon to unlock the caves of the Regis; the other is Wailord.
  • Relicanth, along with Zigzagoon, are the only two Pokémon left out of the Hoenn Pokérap.
  • Relicanth shares its types with four of the five original fossil Pokémon, Kabuto, Kabutops, Omanyte, and Omastar, furthering its link to them as a living fossil. It also shares its type with Corsola, Tirtouga, Carracosta, and Drednaw.
  • Relicanth is the only Water-type to learn Head Smash, as well as the only one to not receive recoil damage from it, due to its ability. In fact, it's one of two Pokémon that gains STAB and protection from a recoil-damage-giving move. The other is Clefable with Magic Guard.
  • Relicanth is one of only five Pokémon with its gender ratio that one is able to catch in the wild, others include Munchlax, Snorlax, Combee, Eevee and Togepi.

Origin

Relicanth is based on a Coelacanth, often described as a "living fossil" because it's appearance is virtually unchanged from when it first appeared. It also shares some similarities with ancient fish, known for having heads with armor-like growths.

Etymology

Relicanth may come from relic and coelacanth. It might also come from relict (something that has lived for a long or primitive time).

Jīransu likely comes from お祖父さん (ojīsan, which can mean "grandfather" but can be used to refer to any elderly man) and "coelacanth."
