* Oddish has a scientific name: ''Oddium Wanderus'', given in its {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s|FireRed}} and {{pkmn|X and Y|Y}} Pokédex entries. The only other Pokémon with a known scientific name is {{p|Kabutops}}, with ''Kabutops Maximis''.
** Oddish's alias name is アルキメンデス ''Arukimendesu'', as stated in the Japanese versions of FireRed as well as its {{2v2|Red|Green}} Pokédex entries. This can either be seen as a corruption of ''{{wp|Archimedes}}'', the Greek mathematician, or as a direct reference to a popular Japanese instant noodles brand ''{{jwp|アルキメンデス|Archimendes}}'' that literally means ''instant noodles on the go''. The latter may reference Oddish's appearance when walking.
* Oddish maycan be consideredseen as a counterpartparallel ofto {{p|Bellsprout}}. Both are {{2t|Grass|Poison}}-type {{cat|Generation I Pokémon}}, {{cat|Pokémon that are part of a three-stage evolutionary line|part of a three-stage evolutionary line}}, can evolve starting at level 21, and whose second evolutionary event utilizes a [[Leaf Stone]]. Oddish is [[Game-exclusive Pokémon|exclusive]] to {{game3|Red and Blue|Pokémon Red|s}}, {{game3|FireRed and LeafGreen|FireRed|s}}, and [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!|Let's Go, Pikachu!]] while Bellsprout is exclusive to Blue, LeafGreen, and Let's Go, Eevee!, with both Pokémon found in the same locations in their respective versions. Additionally, both can be found at [[White Forest]] in {{game3|Black and White|White|s}}, and both Pokémon have had their {{pkmn|Egg}} designs revealed.
* In {{game|Gold and Silver|s}}, Oddish is programmed to be able to learn {{m|Charm}} through {{pkmn|breeding}}, but no other Pokémon in the {{egg2|Grass}} can legitimately learn it to pass down as an [[Egg Move]] in those games. In [[Generation III]] and {{Gen|IV}}, Oddish can inherit the move from {{p|Shroomish}} by chain breeding. In Generation V on, Oddish can inherit the move directly from {{p|Cottonee}}.
