Trivia

  • Before the reveal of Pansear and Panpour, Pansage was well-liked due to it having a plant on its head that resembles broccoli.

Origin

Pansage seems to be the result of combining monkeys or primates with trees. Because of this, it is either a visual pun on monkey trees or leaf monkeys.

Pansage, Pansear and Panpour collectively might be based on the three wise moneys. Pansage itself might represent "speak no evil".

Name Origin

Pansage is a combination of Pan, the genus of chimpanzees, and sage. Due to it being a Grass Pokémon, the "sage" in its name likely refers to the Salvia officinalis, also known as the common sage.

The name Yanappu is a combination of either 柳 yanagi (willow) or 野菜 yasai (vegetable), and ape.
