Name origin
::To expand upon this its Japanese name is ジュナイパー, or Junaipaa. Probably draws from jukai (abundant leafage) and sniper, though I wonder what it'll be officially romanized to since Juniper is literally the name of a type of plant. --[[User:TheMaskedMeowth|TheMaskedMeowth]] ([[User talk:TheMaskedMeowth|talk]]) 15:00, 27 October 2016 (UTC)
:::To further expand, I think the inspiration for Decidueye's questionable typing lies in its name and appearance. Its cloak is brown, like a dead leaf, and "deciduous" refers to leaves that fall from shrubs and trees when they've matured and died (after which they become brown). The Ghost-typing (in place of the Flying-type) is a reference to dead leaves. Just thought I'd share in case anyone was confused. <font face="Verdana">[[User:Blue Ninjakoopa|<span style="color:blue">BNK</span>]]</font><sup>[[User talk:Blue Ninjakoopa|Talk]]</sup> 16:57, 27 October 2016 (UTC)
:Funny thing about the "{{wp|deadeye}}" inspiration, I thought it was more "{{wp|hawkeye}}". <small>That's what I get for being into {{wp|Hawkeye (comics)|comic books}} too much.</small> I guess either works, when you think about it. ----[[User:NateVirus|<span style="color:blue">NateVirus</span>]]<small>''([[User talk:NateVirus|<span style="color:green">Talk</span>]]''|''[[Special:Contributions/NateVirus|<span style="color:red">Contributions</span>]]''</small>) 20:19, 27 October 2016 (UTC)
