Origin
 
===Origin===
Appearance-wise, Garchomp seems like a cross between a {{wp|Wyvernwyvern}}, various species of sharks (including the {{wp|hammerhead shark|hammerhead}}), and possibly a {{wp|dromaeosaurid}} or other {{wp|theropod}} dinosaur. In particular, considering Garchomp's saurian build with sharklike features, it may be a visual play on the ''{{wp|Carcharodontosaurus}}'', a theropod dinosaur whose name means "shark-toothed lizard". Its design also strongly resembles a {{wp|jet aircraft}}.
