Appearances

Anime

Multiple Mareep appear in Mild 'n Wooly and one is owned by a young trainer called Mary. A Mareep owned by Cadee and Dr. Anna appears in Hassle in the Castle and A Chip Off the Old Brock respectively. Two separate Mareep also appear in Pruning a Passel of Pals! and Sticking With Who You Know.

Trivia

  • Mareep's coloration changes twice in Generation IV. However, the shiny coloration stays the same. A faint pink colour. This goes with the saying 'one pink sheep'.
  • Mareep is one of the few Pokémon to have three different sprites in Generation II.
  • Mareep can be considered an anagram of ampere, a measure of electrical current.
  • Mary's Mareep briefly appears in the opening of all Johto Journey episodes, using an unknown move, with other Pokemon such as Ledian and Noctowl.

Origins

Mareep appears to based off a sheep. It could also be a reference to the name of the book Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick, the basis to Blade Runner.

It could also be based on the nursery rhyme 'Mary Had A Little Lamb'.

Mary+Sheep=Mareep
