N and fainted tympole

N and his Tympole in the Pokémon Adventures Manga.

N is shown to be owning a Tympole as he used it in a match against Black, though after his Tympole lost he did not return it to its Poké Ball because he thinks that Pokémon are his friends and he shouldn't trap it in a Poké Ball.

Trivia

Origin

  • Tympole is based on a tadpole and a loudspeaker. The bumps on its sides resemble headphones and the poison glands of toads. Its eyebrows also resemble the musical quarter note.

Etymology

  • Tympole comes from tympanic membrane (another name for the eardrum), tympani (a musical drum with a low sound) and tadpole.
  • Its Japanese name, Otamaro, comes from otamajakushi (a word used for both tadpole and musical note) and maro (shaved eyebrows).
