TriviaEdit

  • In the Pokémon anime there is a misconception that Arbok evolves into Seviper.
  • Though it is named "Arbok", what it pronounces is "Char-bok".

EtymologyEdit

Arbok appears to be based off a cobra.

Arbok's English name is taken from the word "cobra", except spelled with a "k" making it "kobra", and spelling it backwards.
