Oddish (Pokémon)

4 bytes added, 31 January
* In [[Generation II]], [[Bill's grandfather]] asks the {{player}} to bring him a "round, green" Pokémon with leaves growing on its head, referring to Oddish. However, in those games and subsequent generations, Oddish's body (unless it is {{Shiny}}) is blue. The mistake might have been a translation error caused by the ambiguity of the Japanese word ''aoi'', which can mean both blue and green. This is fixed in {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}.
* 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.
