Malamar (Japanese????? Calamanero) is a dual-type Dark/Psychic Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

It evolves from Inkay starting at level 30 when leveled up while the Nintendo 3DS system is held upside-down.

Biology

Malamar is a dark-purple squid-like Pokémon. It has a pair of fins on the bottom of its body that function as its legs. Malamar's main body has six light-yellow spots on the front and back and a light-yellow stripe nearly wrapping around its body above the spots. Its arm-like tendrils have grown scythe-like in appearance. Malamar has a red beak, half closed eyes with black sclera, yellow irises and wavy "hair" made of eight tentacles. It possesses strong hypnotic powers, which it uses to force others to do its bidding. It can lure prey with hypnotic motions before it wraps its tentacles around the prey, then it finishes off with digestive fluids. Malamar and its pre-evolution Inkay are the only known Pokémon that can learn Topsy-Turvy.

Trivia

  • Inkay and Malamar have several unique attributes:
    • In addition to Inkay's method of evolution into Malamar being unique, it would have been impossible in any of the previous core series Pokémon games, because the Nintendo 3DS is Nintendo's first handheld system with an internal gyroscope.
    • They are the only Pokémon in the Water 2 Egg Group that are not Water-type.
    • They are the only Pokémon that can have the ability Contrary without it being their Hidden Ability.
  • Malamar and its pre-evolution were designed by Hitoshi Ariga.[1]
  • Malamar is the only Pokémon with a catch rate of 80.

Origin

Malamar is based on an upside-down squid. Its body orientation and hypnosis ability may have been inspired by the vampire squid's abilities to invert its tentacles and produce light.

Name origin

Malamar may be a combination of mal- (Latin for bad), μαλ?κιο malákio (Greek for mollusk), calamari, and mare (Latin for sea).

Calamanero may be from ??? karamasu (to entangle), calamari, ? ma (demon), and possibly nero di seppia (Italian for cephalopod ink).
