Trivia

  • The Max Revive is similar in appearance to konpeitō, a Portuguese and Japanese sugar candy.
  • Geometrically, the Max Revive closely resembles the tetrakis hexahedron, a polyhedron consisting of a cube with its square faces substituted for square-based pyramids.
    • However, the Sinnoh Underground version appears geometrically different, appearing to have square antiprismatic symmetry.
