Everything else we know about Medicham

Medicham and Meditite, its pre-evolved form, are part of Gen 3 and debuted when Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire were released on the Game Boy Advance.

The appearance of both Pokémon have taken inspiration from yoga, with them being depicted in yoga-like poses in their official art. Their names also appear to have taken inspiration from the word ‘meditate’ and, in Medicham’s case, this is done by taking the first three letters of the word.

The design of both Medicham and Mega Medicham may have also been inspired by Bedlah clothing - a type of clothing originating from traditional Egyptian folklore - since their legs resemble traditional Bedlah pants.

Good luck battling Mega Medicham in Pokémon Go!
