Trivia

  • In the anime, Dunsparce is usually shown to be much shorter than 4'11", which is its listed height (or in this case, length) in the games.
    • It is also shown as much smaller than its listed height in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, being even smaller than Pikachu.
  • Dunsparce was designed by Hironobu Yoshida.

Origin

Dunsparce is based on the mythical Tsuchinoko, a serpentine cryptid of Japan. Similar to Bigfoot or the Chupacabra, sightings and reports appear in Japanese media; however, hard evidence is always lacking. Tsuchinoko are 30 cm to 80 cm long, with a large head and poisonous fangs. Its body is thicker than its head and tail. The noises it makes resemble squeaks, chirps and snores. Unlike real snakes, which slither from side to side, a Tsuchinoko wiggles ahead in a straight line. The Tsuchinoko curls its body to leap through the air. Moreover, the fact that Dunsparce, a snake-like creature, has wings also brings to mind the motif of the Feathered Serpent, a prominent deity or supernatural being in many Mesoamerican religions. In addition, Dunsparce shares some traits with bumblebees, including their stripes, tiny wings, stinger-like tail, and the fact that they burrow into the ground. This may be a visual pun inspired by the name "bachi hebi" (literally "bee snake"), which the Tsuchinoko is also known by.

Name Origin

Dunsparce may be a combination of dun (grayish yellow or gloomy) and sparse (referring to its rarity). Nokocchi is an anagram of つちのこ Tsuchinoko, a fabled snake-like creature.
