Appearances

Anime

Wynaut debuted during the Blackthorn City arc, which began in "Fangs for Nothin'" and ended in "Why? Wynaut!". However, Wobbuffet, Bayleef and Bulbasaur were the only ones to see it throughout the entire storyline.

A Wynaut appeared in Camp pikachu. It helped Pikachu and its friends, including the Pichu Brothers, get to the Pichu Brothers' next train to Big Town. At the end of the episode, the same Wynaut called several other Wynaut, apparently its friends, to help the gang move a cart in order to reach the train.

Multiple Wynaut appeared in Who, What, When, Where, Wynaut? as the only inhabitants of Mirage Island. In the episode, a plan of Team Rocket's backfired and sent everyone to that island.

A Wynaut appeared in Meloetta's Moonlight Serenade.

Trivia

  • It is the only Pokémon found on Hoenn's Mirage Island, thus, making it the only baby Pokemon found in the wild in Generation III.
    • Strangely, in Generation IV, it is the only baby Pokemon not to be found in the wild.
  • Wynaut appeared in the Pokémon anime in the Johto region, before its introduction in the games. It shares this trait with Kecleon.

Origin

Wynaut and its evolution are based on the Okiagari-koboshi doll, a Japanese doll with squinted eyes that bobs back and forth when pushed.

Etymology

Wynaut is a play on the phrase "Why not?"

Names in other languages

  • Japanese: Its Japanese name, Sohnano, is a corruption of the phrase sō na no (そうなの) which roughly translates into "Really?" or "Is that so?". This fits in with Wobbuffet's Japanese name (Sonans). Both of their names create an infinite conversation of "Really?" and "That's the way it is!" and so on.
  • French: Its French name, Okéoké, is a corruption of the phrase "Okay, okay".
