Yes I know this is speculative but I kinda thought of this
look at Hiyappu and how it has its eyes closed
now look at Baoppu and its pose..it looks like it wants you to speak up
and Yanappu its mouth is open...but is there sound coming out?
doesnt it look similar to the Three wise monkeys? maybe it could be added to the origins?

- That's an interesting thought.--Pokélova! 18:07, 11 September 2010 (UTC)
- Thank you, I looked at them and I knew it reminded me of somethingalso If you look their tails resemble card symbols Yanappu (heart) Baoppu (Ace) and Hiyappu (spade) but that's not really trivia Ataro 18:28, 11 September 2010 (UTC)
could it be that the monkeys tail indicates their number look baoppu has one end yanappu has two ends and hiyappu has three like a clover isn't it?Badwolf1234 04:07, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
When I first saw Hiyappu (ヒヤップ) I mistakenly read its name as Hiyassu (I feel embarrassed, lol), so my first thought of the origin of the name was the verb 冷やす (hiyasu) to cool, to chill. It seems I wasn't far off, because with a quick little dictionary research I found 冷や (hiya) cool water/sake. I assume at this point 冷や + ape (as speculated in the Yanappu article) is a good guess, so I'll add it to the article.
- Um my Appu = ape line wasn't really true...it would be eipu if it was ape...Ataro 23:35, 11 September 2010 (UTC)
- Yeah, that does make sense... But it's the best we have for now, lol.

How is this not a plausible origin?
Not only are its eyes are slit and closed it is also coincidentally is based off of the see-no-evil monkey, which is similar to the greed punishment. - 050294 05:51, 18 November 2010 (UTC)
- It seems plausible enough to me. It's rare that Pokémon is based on only a single origin. "the punishment for the envious is to have their eyes sewn shut with wire because they have gained sinful pleasure from seeing others brought low." sounds basically the same as "see no evil", so I say it's worth keeping up. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ 06:16, 18 November 2010 (UTC)
Move to Panpour

Can someone edit the wikipedia link for Ahuizotl to link to Ahuizotl (creature)? The default for that goes to a king named after the creature, not the creature itself. Phantom♫Junkie 16:28, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
Panpour and its evolution are the only Pokemon to learn Scald via level-up, but ironically Panpour's Chinese name 冷水猴 means "Cold Water Monkey"! Does this seem like a notable trivia? Personally I find it pretty interesting...Edit: Silly me, forgot to sign. KingKairos 10:36, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
