Trivia

  • Honchkrow and Swellow have the same body colors.

Origin

Honchkrow may be based on a gangster, which may explain its attack animations on Battle Revolution and that its command over gangs of Murkrow. It might also be based on a wizard, similarly in how Mismagius is a witch.

Etymology

Its name may be a mixture of honcho like the "head honcho" of a murder of crows.
