Although it's currently listed as possibly being inspired by an archer and a barn owl, might it instead be based off a pueo? Pueo are owls only found in Hawaii and are notable for having a white ring around their dark faces, resembling a hood. They have a notable significance in traditional Hawaiian culture, and is one of the forms of the god Kane. [[User:Mimi|Mimi]] ([[User talk:Mimi|talk]]) 23:47, 27 October 2016 (UTC)
:That could be a possibility, though there have been plenty of starters that are based on animals that arguably aren't found in the country/part of the world their [[region]] is based off of let alone many Pokémon introduced in a region that isn't based on their real world habitat. If anything, I would think that the possibility that Decidueye is based on a {{wp|pueo}} would go along side the barn owl bit. But that's just me. Also one can fit the pueo inspiration into its {{t|Ghost}} typing, since the pueo is associated with the Hawaiian spirits known as {{wp|aumakua}}. But then again that might be something that was more meant for the [[Guardian deities]] like [[Tapu Koko]]----[[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>) 00:03, 28 October 2016 (UTC)
