183 Mariru (Marill)



Pokemon name meaning:

mari – ball

マリン marin – marine (Japanese word from English)

Rill – English word (running stream)


A rill is specifically a small stream, indicating a small riverside water Pokemon (Mariru was pure water-type until Pokemon X/Y when she became water/fairy). Such reference to smallness is common in first-level Pokemon and when Mariru was named, she was first-level. Her pre-evolution, Ruriri (Azurill) came in a later generation.
