Tympole (Japanese???? Otamaro) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves into Palpitoad starting at level 25, which evolves into Seismitoad starting at level 36.

Biology

Tympole is a round, tadpole-like Pokémon with a tan, circular face. It has large, oval, black eyes, a wide mouth with down-turned corners, and black eyebrows in the shape of quarter notes. Its spherical body is black with no visible limbs. Instead, it has two black-and-blue ringed half-spheres on either side of its head. These spheres are vibrated to make a sound too high-pitched for humans to hear. The sounds are used in rhythm to communicate with others of its kind, particularly for warning of danger. It has a long, blue tail with a fan-like shape and a black spot at its base. The anime demonstrates that Tympole swims and attacks in groups.

Major appearances

Tympole made its debut in Facing Fear with Eyes Wide Open!, when a group of them attacked Oshawott under water, under the command of a wild Palpitoad. They were trying to prevent him from getting the medicine to cure the team from the poisoning several Foongus inflicted, but fled when Oshawott opened his eyes while using Razor Shell.

Minor appearances

A Tympole made a very minor cameo near the end of Beheeyem, Duosion, and the Dream Thief!.

 

Multiple Tympole appeared in Kyurem VS. The Sword of Justice.

A Tympole appeared in a flashback in Drayden Versus Iris: Past, Present, and Future!.

Trivia

  • Tympole shares its category with PoliwagPoliwhirl, and Poliwrath. They are all known as the Tadpole Pokémon.
  • Tympole's face has become a phenomenon on the popular Japanese online artist community Pixiv.
  • Although it is simulated as swimming in Pokédex 3D, Tympole does not display the bubbles effect that all other Pokémon simulated in an aquatic environment, such as Eelektrik and Stunfisk display. The reason for this is unknown.

Origin

Tympole appears to be a combination of a toad tadpole and a loudspeaker. Tympole's spherical "speakers" were probably inspired by toads' "warts" and poison glands, as well as the Surinam toad, an aquatic amphibian whose backs are covered in pockets that hold its eggs, or more likely, the tympanum of a real-life toad, located in the same area. It is an eardrum-like body part the toad uses to hear. Its Pokédex entry also mentions the fact that it makes vibrations underwater, also like the Surinam. Its eyebrows resemble musical notes, specifically the quarter note, and the bumps on the side of its head are similar to headphones.

Name origin

Tympole may be a combination of timpani (a low-pitched drum-like sound or the sensation felt in the abdomen when a drum is struck), tympani (a type of drum), or tympanic membrane (eardrum; referring to the bumps on each side of its head), and tadpole. It may also involve tempo.

Otamaro may be a combination of ??????? otamajakushi (tadpole or musical notes) and ?? maro (an affectionate suffix or shaved eyebrows, the latter referring to the markings above its eyes).
