Trivia

  • Nupin and Gellin were designed by Involuntary Twitch. They are some of Twitch's oldest fakemon designs.
  • In earlier versions, Nupin was a slug-like Pokémon with no eyes.

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 (Finlandese for button), Nupa (Javanese for mushroom) and pin.
