Intro Trivia Edit

  • Aipom is a Gen 2 Normal-type Pokémon based on a monkey.
  • Its most notable design feature is the hand on the end of its tail.
    • This is based on the fact that many species of apes have prehensile tails, which act as an extra appendage.
  • Aipom's Pokémon Diamond Pokédex entry states that it can use its tail as well as its hands. This contradicts the Pokédex entry from Pokémon Ruby which states that its hands have become clumsy due to it using its tail more.
