Trivia

  • Selkid's body shape is very similar to that of Snivy.

Design origin

Selkid is based on a selkie, a mythological creature that lives as a seal in water, but may shed its skin to take human form on land. Its singing ability is likely derived from the sirens of Greek mythology, beings whose enchanting songs would lure sailors to their doom upon the rocks.

In addition to making the sprites more distinctive. Selkid and Syrentide's altered Shiny sprite color scheme may have been intended as a reference to another Nintendo property in the form of the Zora Champion character Mipha from The Legend of Zelda Breath of The Wild. As, in addition to the color scheme, the character was also female, and was a Zora, a race in the Zelda series with aquatic attributes. Breath of the Wild also came out about a year after the distribution of Pokemon Uranium online, and the patch featuring the changed sprite was made available about 3 months after the game's release.

Name origin

Selkid is a combination of selkie and kid.
