At 428, Capabara has the lowest base stat total of all fully evolved pokemon.
Capabara is based on a capybara, the largest species of South American rodent. Its fur pattern is reminiscent of a chullo, an Andean style of hat.
Discussion and conceptualisation of the regional rodent began not long after the earliest confirmations (or at least agreements) on the starter Pokémon designs. The role of 'early game regional rodent' was one of the last '/vp/ makes a PokéDex' roles to have an individual discussion thread seperate to the newly-founded general thread.
Capabara's name is a combination of cap and capybara.
