    Origin[]

    Sprigatito seems to be based on a long-haired kitten. Its Grass typing is a reference to wildcats living in flora-filled environments such as forests and jungles. Its facial marking may take inspiration from Himalayan cats or ragdoll cats and a magician's mask. It may also be inspired by the Iberian lynx. Its habit of sunbathing to photosynthesize may be based on feline nature to seek out sources of warmth, typically before sleeping.

    Etymology[]

    Sprigatito might be a portmanteau of "sprig" (a small stem of a plant), "spring" (a season often symbolizing growth and new beginnings), and gatito (Spanish word for "kitten").

    Other languages[]

    ニャオハ (Nyaoha) might be a portmanteau of ニャ (nya), Japanese onomatopoeia for a cat's cry, and hoja (j is pronounced similarly to h: [ˈo.xä]), Spanish for leaf. It may also contain (o), the Japanese word for small and (ha), the Japanese word for leaf.
