Overqwil (Japanese: ハリーマン Haryman) is a dual-type Dark/Poison Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII.

It evolves from Hisuian Qwilfish after using Barb Barrage in strong style at least 20 times.

Biology

Overqwil is a large, spherical Pokémon that resides in the sea. All over its body are overgrown conical spikes whose colors correspond to those on Overqwil's body. Its top half is a black color while its bottom half is light yellow. In the middle of its body, the two colors create a pattern. The spikes on the top half of its body have parts of purple at their tips, and there are two very long spikes at the top and bottom of its body that jut out in a straight direction. Above its eyes and around part of the top half of its body, Overqwil has circular purple dots. Its lips also have a purple coloration and appear puffy, and its small light-yellow eyes have purple pupils and are always fixated in an annoyed expression. In between its eyes are two pairs of spikes, the outer ones being longer and resembling eyebrows. Its large tail appears flat with a black outline and a purple inside, which also has a pattern that resembles the letter "Q."

Overqwil has a very aggressive personality, which has given it the nickname "sea fiend." Its diet consists of poison and its spikes enable it to use its signature move, Barb Barrage.

Trivia

Origin

Much like Qwilfish, Overqwil appears to be based on pufferfish or porcupinefish, which are covered in spines and are poisonous to eat. However, Overqwil's oversized spikes along with their ability to inject poison may be inspired by other marine animals such as lionfish or sea urchins. Its physical appearance along with signature move, Barb Barrage, together are reminiscent of naval mines. Based on its Japanese category, Overqwil may also be partly inspired by the kenzan (剣山, lit. "sword mountain"), a device consisting of a plate with numerous needles or spikes on it, used to fix flowers in place for the art of ikebana (flower arranging).

Name origin

Overqwil may be a combination of over or overkill, quill, and Qwilfish.

Haryman may be derived from ハリーセン Harysen (Qwilfish) or 針千本 harisenbon (porcupinefish), with the 千 sen (thousand) part replaced with 万 man (ten thousand or myriad), continuing the numerical theming.
