  • The starter that was used for Echoak was formerly Sproutypus, a platypus-like Pokemon introduced in 1983, and Bowren, a chicken-like Pokemon introduced in 1987.
  • Echoak looks like dragon-like bat.
  • Surprisingly, Echoak, along with its pre-evolution and evolution, can learn Gust, Wing Attack, and Aerial Ace, despite not being part Flying-type.
