Jihe 集合 in Chinese is "group", ya' know. Wondering if you would want to add that. 444Zekrom 12:34, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

English name

English names have been confirmed: Jiheddo is now called Zewilous, which comes from "Zwei," the number two in German, following the pattern of German numbers set by its entire evolution family. --Kianglo 00:44, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

No, they have not. Just because Serebii says so, doesn't mean it's official. Unless this all comes from an official source, like Nintendo, we will refrain from adding them until they are confirmed. Jellotalk 00:49, 3 February 2011 (UTC)
Except I didn't get it from Serebii, so don't think I did. --Kianglo 01:07, 3 February 2011 (UTC)
Not the point, the fact is that they're are not confirmed Ataro 01:09, 3 February 2011 (UTC)
If you didn't get it from Nintendo or Pokemon.com then it is not official. Jellotalk 01:12, 3 February 2011 (UTC)
Fair enough, just remember the whole German numbers thing when you see these names on the official site. Doesn't hurt to throw those names on to the discussion page early along with a tiny bit of origin info. Not asking to move any pages yet. --Kianglo 01:20, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Sprite inconsistency

I noticed that Jiheddo has spikes of fur on its necks in its official artwork, but these are not present in the sprites - is this significant enough to mention in the Trivia? Hiyakkie gets a mention for its tail inconsistency, and Nidoqueen gets mentioned for teeth... But it's understandable if it's still too tiny of a thing. Silverlucario 07:56, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

English Name Pronunciation

How would Zweilous be pronounced? "Zvai-lus", since it contains "wei", or "Zway-lus"? - unsigned comment from Onxanthy (talkcontribs)

Maybe "tsvai-lus", since "zwei" is pronounced "tsvai". Kikugi 06:05, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
Bulbapedia does not list pronunciations. It was done in the past, but it caused too many disagreements, even with pronunciations from official guides. --SnorlaxMonster 14:12, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

Species name

See Talk:Basculin.--Starman125 18:47, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

How do you know this Pokémon is carnivorous?

It only says on this page once, in the diet section. Where does it say that it is carnivorous in official media? Tag365 (talk) 01:38, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

It's more than likely an assumption based on its teeth. The biology sections are currently undergoing a revamp, so it will get removed when this page is done if a source cannot be found. Crystal Talian 03:56, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

TM

I'm looking at my 3DS screen right now and it's telling me that Zweilous can learn Thief by TM. Poor-quality proof that's backwards for some reason. -- EnosShayremtalk 20:01, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

I'm also seeing Strength, Rock Smash, Taunt, and Torment. Not sure what happened here. -- EnosShayremtalk 20:10, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

Origins / Trivia

Zweilous's trivia / origin entries could be updated with an excerpt from the following Ken Sugimori quote from the May 2011 issue of Nintendo Dream Magazine (referring to the whole Deino family):

“Originally, their design incorporated an army tank motif, and the patterns that resemble treads above Zweilous’ legs are leftovers of that early design concept. Initially, the designs weren’t really working, so we put them on ice — but later, when orders came down for a powerful three-stage Dragon type, they were resurrected. In the latter half of development, there was some discussion about changing them to a color that was underrepresented in the Pokedex. So from the list of colors we were considering, I chose a strong purple. Hydreigon’s design is based on the Yamata no Orochi, but when we gave it so many heads it was actually a bit off-putting. So we changed his design, giving him just one head — but if you see his silhouette, he still has the appearance of possessing many heads. The two heads on Hydreigon’s sides are actually just hands, and don’t contain any brains of their own.”

Evolution Trivia

The evolution of Deino into Zweilous is tied (with Dreepy into Drakloak) as the highest level of any evolution that can still evolve further. I think this pairs nicely with Zweilous into Hydreigon being the highest level evolution. Notable?--Gou (talk) 22:07, 25 June 2020 (UTC)
