Trivia

  • Simisage is the only Pokémon evolved via Leaf Stone which does not have two types. All other fully-evolved pure Grass-type Pokémon evolve via Sun Stone.

Origin

Simisage is based on a monkey and a tree; the fact that it is based on both may mean it might be based on the legends of monkey trees or possibly a visual pun on leaf monkeys. Its hairstyle may have been inspired by the bōsōzoku or yankee subculture.

Name origin

Simisage is a combination of simian and sage. Sage may either mean a type of plant or a wise person, the latter possibly relating to the "three wise monkeys" motif of the elemental monkeys. It may also come from the german word sagen, meaning to say.

Yanakkie may be a combination of 柳 yanagi (willow) or 野菜 yasai (vegetable; an alternate reading of 菜 is na) and monkey. It may also involve ヤンキー yankee (delinquent youth) and けっき kekki (vigor).

In other languages
