Tweetot and its evolution are one of only three Psychic/Fairy Fakemon featured in the Rikoto Regional Dex, the other being Felove.
Tweetot shares the same name as an old Fakemon made by WaterTrainer that was meant to be a Pre-Evolution for Chatot.
Tweetot is based on a bird. Tweetot's shiny color scheme of pink could refer to Valentine's Day, a day known for birds, music, candy, cards and romance. It is also usually symbolized with colors like red, purple, and pink.
