Rowap -> Rowan Plant
Not just the word "Rowan". This is because Japanese loanwords tend to contract loanwords. This also includes Pokémon (ポケモン, pokemon, short for pocket monster). Another example is motorcycle = オートバイ = ootobai, derived and contracted from motorbike.
Rowap = rowan plant = ロワｯプ (rowappu), shortened from ロワンプラント(rowanpuranto).

Damage to Allies
As seen in this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQ6VZLWhKaQ) at 11:45, this Berry is activated even if an ally attacks the holder. Is it safe to say it works this way in every generation? Hydroxybutyric (talk) 21:20, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
