Trivia

  • Nupin and Gellin were designed by Involuntary Twitch for an old project of hers called Pokémon Amber along with the Sheebit line. They are some of Twitch's oldest fakemon designs.
  • In earlier versions, Nupin was a slug-like Pokémon with no eyes. This resembles real life single-celled organisms more, most of whom don't have eyes.
  • Before version 1.2, Nupin used Phione's cry.
  • No other Pokémon has the same type combination as Nuclear Nupin and its evolution.
    • By extension, Nuclear Nupin and its evolution are the only Grass types paired with the Nuclear type.

Design origin

Nupin is based off of a single-celled organism, possibly an amoeba or a bacteria. It may also derive from phytoplankton, considering its Grass typing and photosynthetic abilities.

Name Origin

Nupin may be a combination of Nuppi (Finnish for button), Nupa (Javanese for mushroom) and pin.
