Resemblance to Growlithe
It's the Puppy Pokémon. It's orange and has black stripes on it. It has a tuft of hair on it's head. Now I don't believe for an instant they are related in evolution but this can't be a coincidence.. --Landfish7 23:26, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

The only distinct difference between the Yorkshire Terrier and the Australian Silky Terrier is that the latter has a longer snout, a feature which isn't reflected in any of the Yorterrie line's artwork. I think we're best sticking with the Yorkshire Terrier as its main design inspiration after Yorterrie's namesake. Emp, out 16:01, 10 October 2010 (UTC)
- Isn't that a fansub where the "Yorterry" was added after the fact?Ryulong 19:10, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

It's older than I even gave credit to in my edit summary - it's from the 1700s, people! - and who cares whether it's obscure in Japan? It's not the Japanese name! In fact, what even makes you so sure it's "obscure in Japan"? "Lillipup" is a single letter off of "Lilliput", and "lilliputian" is almost a synonym for "li'l". I say that not only is "Lilliput" or "lilliputian" a valid naming source, it's by far the most likely naming source! (Well, okay, no one's questioning the "pup" part.) --HeroicJay 20:48, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
- While liliput is a real word, that does not mean it can be a origin. Also being old does not justify origins. Origin names have to have something to do with the Pokemon. Seeing as it has nothing to do with a dog or puppy is why it keeps getting removed. - 050294 20:54, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
