Is this trivia worthy?

is it worth noting that metapod is the only pokémon based on a cacoon whose name doesn't come from cacoon Turtwig A Contributions 14:48, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

I wouldn't think so. —darklordtrom 20:48, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

Alternate Coloration

Is it worth noting that Metapod's shiny coloration may be a reference to the games Red and Green? --Bardock 17:43, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

No. Not everything red and green means Red and Green. Not everything gold and silver means Gold and Silver. And so on and so forth. —darklordtrom 01:24, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

worthy trivia or phisiology?

Has anyone else noticed how Metapods body looks like a face?

and due to way it looks

it's back "face" is angry

while it's front one looks bored (Ataro 17:11, 25 July 2010 (UTC))

Name Origin

I have a theory that Cater"pie" (pronounced like "pea"), Meta"pod", and "Butter"free are part of a food-themed naming convention (particularly that of peas), but my editions stating this as possibility were reversed. To a lesser extent (not present in my edits), "Cater" (pronounced as in the act of food catering) and "pie" (pronounced as the dessert) also have culinary implications, and (reaching further around) "Meta" could refer to one's "meta"bolism. I also once received "free" food at a Burger King, a known sponsor. Am I alone? Also, why will no girls date me? --GrowlitheandEkans 03:41, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

I guess you imagined a lot of thing, such as associating Butterfree with Burger King. About the girls, I can't tell you. Gabriel Rocha (Diby esp) 03:57, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
Good point. --GrowlitheandEkans 05:34, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
I've seen less compelling trivia validated so you might as well put it back in.
