Trivia

  • Malamar is an up-side down version of Inkay. This is why player needs to hold the 3DS upside-down to evolve it at level 30.

Etymology

The name "Malamar" is almost homophonous with the Malay word "Melamar". "Melamar" means "to engage or propose in terms of marriage" or simply "to propose one's hand in marriage".

It may also be derived from the word Calamari, as removing the 'i' leaves it with Calamar; a 'word' which sounds very similar to it's name.
