Trivia

  • Trapinch is the only one in its evolutionary line to have a Hidden Ability.
  • Trapinch is the slowest Ground-type Pokémon.
  • Trapinch's base Attack is higher than its evolved form's and is the same as its final evolved form's. That may be a reference to the fact that antlion larvae are more aggressive and predatory than their adult stages.
    • It has the highest base Attack of all Pokémon that can evolve twice.

Origin

Bulbanews
Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:

It is based on the larval stage of the antlion, which live in conical sandy pits before maturing into winged adults.

Name origin

Trapinch is a combination of trap (describing traps it uses to catch prey) and pinch (referring to its powerful jaws).

Nuckrar may be a contraction of nutcracker, referencing its nutcracker-like jaws. Nuckrar may also be a play on the word "knucker", a type of folkloric dragon which lives in a hole.
