Trivia
Hippowdon is based on a {{wp|hippopotamus}}.
====Name origin====
Hippowdon's name is derived from ''hippopotamus'', either ''power'' or, ''powder'' (as in sand), or possibly the onomatopoeia "''Pow!''", and the suffix ''-don'' which can be taken to mean "tooth" or "lord".
Kabarudon's name is derived from the Japanese word 河馬 ''kaba'', hippopotamus, which it is based on, and the aforementioned ''-don''.
