One of the few non-legendary Pokémon in the undiscovered egg group, along with Mennopaws and Hanginy.
It is the only other baby Pokémon, along with Hanginy.
Contrary to popular belief, Smogaroben did not steal Lycanroc's girlfriend.
He's never gonna be in Smogon's Create A Pokemon project so don't bother requesting him and his evolution to be in it.
Its shiny is based on Koffing's shiny.
Smogaroben references the website Smogon, which is used for competitive Pokémon battling and discussion alongside the CAP project. Its face appears to be inspired by Scizor's claws, in reference to the Pokémon's use in the metagame. It also bears a cross pattern between the ”eyes” much like that of the Drifloon line, whose typing is notable for having 3 immunities in all. Its parrot-like appearance and Poison type reference common insults used to describe Smogon players and its body appears to resemble that of Fletchling's. The Pokémon whose final evolution (Talonflame) in Gen 6 was notorious for Brave Bird and Gale Wings at the time; the ability Gale Wings later got nerfed in SM and Talonflame is no longer a Smogonbird.
Their habit of crying for days upon losing (specifically, "If it loses, it will cry for days.") is based on Smogon people not accepting their defeats.
Smogaroben is a combination of Smogon, garbage, and a corruption of robin.
