  • Darmanitan was revealed along with six other Pokémon in July's issue of CoroCoro on June 11, 2010.
  • Darmanitan is one of the few non-legendaries to have different forms, much like Castform .
  • Darmanitan somewhat resembles Donkey Kong in the anime Best Wishes Episode #008.
  • When Darmanitan's health goes below 50%, it goes into its Zen Mode if it has the proper ability.
  • Darmanitan's Zen Mode and Victini are the only Pokémon so far that are both Psychic and Fire type.
  • Darmanitan is the only Fire-type Pokémon that learns Hammer Arm by leveling up.
