Trivia

  • In his sync pair story, Ingo says that he and Emmet were riding the subway when they suddenly found themselves on Pasio, implying that they were brought to the island by one of Hoopa's rings.
  • As noted in the Dex and one of Emmet's Pokémon Center conversations, Ingo's Accelgor was originally caught by Emmet as a Shelmet. Ingo traded his own Karrablast to evolve it.

Origin

Ingo's design is based on his appearance in Pokémon Black, White, Black 2, and White 2. Excadrill is one of Ingo's Pokémon in the core series games, being one of the Pokémon he uses when teaming up with Emmet in Multi Battles. Excadrill's Dex entry comes from Pokémon Black.

Ingo's Special Costume design is based on the Hatter from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Ingo does not own an Accelgor outside this game. Accelgor's Dex entry comes from Pokémon White.
