Origin: The Golden Fleece has nothing to do with its electric type, better separate it into two different things.
Mareep appears to be simply based on a {{wp|sheep}}. ItIts is likely that its electric aspect and Ability comes from howyellowish wool builds up static charges and may alsomight be basedinspired onby the {{wp|golden fleece}} in Greek and Roman mythology. It is also likely that its electric type is a reference on how wool is able to build up static charges. Mareep, and its evolutions, may also have been based on the title of the science fiction novel ''{{wp|Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?}}''.
