Appearances

Anime

Main article: Harley's Banette

Banette first appeared in anime under the ownership of Harley.

Trivia

  • Despite its Pokédex entries stating that can't open its mouth since its energy would escape, many Banette have been seen with their mouths open in the anime and their fainting sprites have also shown them with their mouths open and they can learn Screech, Sleep Talk, Round and Astonish, all of which, involve opening its mouth.
  • Banette played a small part in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers Of Sky's Special Episode "Igglybuff The Prodigy." He went exploring, along with Skorupi and Igglybuff, through the first dungeon.
  • Despite Banette's zipper needing to stay closed in order to conserve energy, Banette's Pokémon-Amie animation also shows it unzipping and opening its mouth in order eat.
  • Banette sometimes digest souls and eject them from the other end.

Origin

Banette is based on a castaway doll.

Etymology

Banette's name is derived from the words "bane" and "marionette". Banette's Japanese name may derive from Geppetto, a fictional character who is most famous for creating and raising Pinocchio and jubaku, that stands for curse in Japanese.
