Trivia

  • It shares its species name with its Pre-evolution, Vennap, and Stunfish, all being known at Trap Pokémon.
  • It shares the same name as a Fakemon from the 4-Chan Pokemon Rom Hack, Pokémon Clover.
  • Several of it's older designs had a flower-like appearance with it having a large flower on its head, and its arms were leaves rather then being vines, as seen in its current sprite.
  • Monstrap has the third lowest Base Speed of all of Rikoto's Grass and Dark-type Pokémon, having a higher Base Speed Stat than Swampheap, and its Pre-evolution, Vennap.
  • Prior to 1.0.1, Monstrap uses Clefable's cry.
  • Monstrap used to have Intimidate as its Ability.

Origin

Monstrap is based on a Venus fly trap. Parts of it's design may suggest that it could be based off the iconic fictional carnivorous plant, Audrey II from the 1960'/1980's Broadway Film, Little Shop of Horrors. It could also be based off the Piranha Plants, most likely Petey Piranha, from the Super Mario Franchise.

Monstrap Old Sprite 5.0

Name origin

Monstrap's name comes from Monster and trap, as in Venus fly trap.
