Trivia
** It is even referred to as "Pikablu" on the [[Pokémon the First Movie Trading Cards|Topps trading cards for the first movie]].
* Marill is tied with {{p|Togepi}} and {{p|Azurill}} for having the lowest base {{stat|Attack}} of all {{type|Fairy}} Pokémon.
** In addition, Marill and Azurill both have the lowest base {{stat|Special Attack}} of all {{Fairy-type|Fairy}} Pokémon.
* Because {{p|Azurill}}'s gender ratio does not match that of its evolved forms and its evolution is not dependent on gender, being female 75% of the time while Marill and Azumarill are female only 50% of the time, female Azurill have a one in three chance of [[Evolution|evolving]] into a male Marill prior to [[Generation VI]]. Whether or not this will happen is determined by its [[personality value]]. Azurill is the only Pokémon to do this.
* Marill's name was originally spelled '''Marril''', as shown in some merchandise for [[M01|the first movie]].
* Marill is the only Pokémon that evolves from a [[Babybaby Pokémon]] and has a [[level]] requirement for evolving further.
 
===Origin===
Marill may be based uponon a combination of a {{wp|mouse}} and a {{wp|beach ball}} or possibly a {{wp|personal flotation device}} or {{wp|lifebuoy}}. Its body and ears also resemble a {{wp|Properties of water|water molecule}}.
 
It may be possibly based on the {{wp|rakali}} (''Hydromys chrysogaster''), who are said to live in burrows on the banks of rivers, lakes, and estuaries, and are commonly known as {{wp|water rat}}s.
