N is shown to be owning a Tympole as he used it against a match against Black, though after his Tympole lost he didn't return it to its Poké Ball because he thinks that Pokémon are his friends and he shouldn't trap it in a Poké Ball.

Trivia

Tympole shares the same species name with Poliwag, Poliwhirl and Poliwrath, they're all known as the Tadpole Pokémon.

Origin

Tympole is based on a tadpole and a loudspeaker.

Etymology

Tympole's English name seems to be a combination of the word "timpani" (the sound of a low-pitched drum, or a type of drum), and "tadpole".
