Trivia

  • Yatagaryu is one of two Pokémon who experience a change in type that loses an immunity to the Ground type after evolution, the other being Coatlith.
    • Yatagaryu is also the only dual-type Pokémon that gains a weakness to the Ground type under normal circumstances after evolution. (though its previous forms would still be weak to it under the effects of Smack Down or Gravity).
  • Prior to version 1.2, Yatagaryu used Garchomp's cry.

Design origin

Yatagaryu is based on the Japanese mythological creature Yatagarasu, the three-legged crow. It also seems to be based partially on Asian dragons, given its shape, typing, and powers.

Name origin

Yatagaryu is a portmanteau of yatagarasu and ryu (Japanese for "dragon").
